Case Study

Commercial Intrusion

Background

Customer is involved in distribution, warehousing and shipping of retail merchandise for a Fortune 500 company.

Designing a solution from the ground up enabled us to provide the user with greater flexibility in the day to day management of their system. So, in addition to correcting a problem that had plagued them and rectifying the ‘false alarm’ conditions, we are actually able to aid them in better managing their costs associated with the security system and protocol.
