Surveillance Systems Incorporated (SSI) is opening its new headquarters and is giving back to the community and veterans across the nation with its favored non-profit, Allegiant Giving.
“SSI has seen tremendous growth in recent months, and we have secured a number of security installation projects in 2015 thanks to the hard work of our employees,” said Todd Flowers, president of SSI. “But perhaps our proudest achievement is what we have been able to do with Allegiant Giving. SSI and Allegiant have supported events that raise money to honor our disabled veterans across the nation with one of the main goals to supply them with ActionTrac chairs that help them go just about anywhere.”
So far in 2015, the company has already been awarded 37 percent more projects over last year. SSI’s most notable casino projects awarded this year include the Yellow Brick Road Casino (N.Y.), Gulfstream Park (Fla.), Viejas Casino (Calif.), and three resorts owned by Affinity Gaming LLC (Nev.). Thanks to these and other projects, the Rocklin-based security system integrator is tracking 25 percent revenue growth over 2014. By June 2015, the company has recorded four of its largest revenue months in the company’s 13-year history. The company also added eight new salespeople to its staff this year.
The growth comes as the company celebrates its new 18,000 sq.-ft. California headquarters office building, which opened in April 2015. SSI houses their corporate offices, design engineering staff, security products testing lab and inside sales staff in the building.
The new headquarters is wrapped around the company’s supported non-profit, Allegiant Giving. Besides raising money to purchase ActionTrac chairs for disabled veterans, SSI and Allegiant have provided funds for local schools, sports programs and scholarship programs.
“Allegiant Giving provides resources to promote local solutions by building relationships with organizations such as SSI,” said Todd Flowers, co-founding board member at Allegiant Giving. “Our programs serve veterans, students and athletes. We are passionate about partnering with companies and individuals who believe in investing in today’s heroes and tomorrow’s leaders,” Flowers added.
As the cover asserts, this year may be a tipping point for access control sales — with big data, cloud, cyber and more causing customers to rethink and retool their access control and identity management systems.
Also in June, the latest developments in Central Station Software, the "Most Popular Brands Among the SDM 100", and much more.
