Buyers patronize companies that provide better quality and better support. And they rarely, if ever, forget when a company provides poor service. But you know this already, and that’s why we turned to our subscribers, to choose the best partners in the security installing channel – and you did!

At ISC West this evening in a special award ceremony, SDM presented its 2009 Channel Partner Awards (our second annual) to the manufacturers and distributors in the security industry, which security installing companies work with and believe are the best performers. These awards were based on nominations and votes received from SDM magazine subscribers via a two-part online survey process conducted by Clear Seas Research.

The 2009 Channel Partners Award Winners are:
  • Sales Support – ADI
  • Technical Support – Pelco
  • Marketing Support – Pelco
  • Technically Advanced Products – Bosch Security
  • Brand Reputation – Pelco
  • Overall Best Channel Partners Program – Honeywell
These awards represent a set of companies that truly understands your opportunities and challenges in growing your security business. By selecting them through your votes as Channel Partner Award winners, you — SDM’s readers — made a strong statement that these firms are industry partners in the truest sense of the word.
