These awards are presented to manufacturers and distributors in the security industry based on nominations and votes received from SDM magazine subscribers via a two-part online survey process conducted by Clear Seas Research.
In the first phase, conducted last December, nearly 12,000 SDM subscribers were given the opportunity to nominate a manufacturer or a distributor that they work with and believe performs the best in terms of:
- Sales Support
- Technical Support
- Marketing Support
- Technically Advanced Products
- Brand Reputation
Digital Monitoring Products
Digital Security Controls
DSX Access Systems
Galaxy Control Systems
Home Automation Inc. (HAI)
International Electronics, Inc.
Keyscan Access Control Systems
Lenel Systems International
NAPCO Security Group
Samsung | GVI Security
The second phase of the survey took place in February. From the list of nominees, survey participants voted online for the companies they believe perform the best in the above-mentioned categories. For each category, voters were able to select up to three companies.
The results have been tallied and the winners determined. The 2009 SDM Channel Partners Awards winners will be announced at ISC West on April 1. Check back right here to find out which companies will take home a top award.
The group of nominees represents a set of companies that truly understands your opportunities and challenges in growing your security business. By selecting them through your votes as Channel Partners nominees, you â€” SDM’s readers â€” made a strong statement that these firms are industry partners in the best sense of the word.
