P1 App Lets NA Customers Check on Site Install Remotely
To help make life easier for its National Account customers, Protection 1 launched a new customer service app – SiteView – that allows images of equipment installed at National Account locations to be viewed remotely by the customers and their technicians. Images are stored on eSuite, Protection 1’s customer web portal.
Protection 1 recently introduced the Equipment Inventory capability to eSuite, which allows National Account customers to view reports of site equipment inventory (pictured). With the addition of SiteView, these customers can now have an even better understanding of what security equipment is installed at their sites – both in item data and in pictures. National Account customers can also have Protection 1 use SiteView to upload pictures of site surveys, installation progress, or even videos of site walk-throughs.
