Security dealers and integrators
are a tight-knit group who are not afraid to offer advice and input on ways to
build their market and sell cutting-edge products, solutions and services. Innovations are out there and best practices
can be found if you know who to ask.
Security Dealer & Integrator (SD&I) magazine, a leading industry
publication with 32 years of service, wants to make sure all its readers have
unique strategies and best practices at their fingertips. In order to facilitate the process, the
magazine has launched the SD&I Fast50: America’s Fastest Growing
"The program is designed to cultivate best practices from integrators
and end user input on what they expect from the systems integration community,”
says Deborah O’Mara, editor-in-chief of SD&I. "This unique ranking will showcase the ‘Best
of the Best’ strategies for success for the entire industry. The SD&I
Best Practices Educational Awards for Fast50 will be presented in Las
Vegas in 2012 by SD&I magazine
and is endorsed by ISC West and the Security Industry Association.
The program is for small and large alarm dealers and systems
integrators alike. Companies submit gross revenues for a three-year period but
those numbers are not published and instead used in a formula that equally
balances revenue percentage growth and overall revenue growth, creating a level
playing field for all entrants. Systems integrators and alarm companies can
fill out the form online at: www.securityinfowatch.com/sdifast50.
SD&I’s Fast50 advisory board members include: Anthony Ball, senior vice president, HID
Global; Michael Barnes, founding partner, Barnes Associates; Ray Coulombe,
managing director, SecuritySpecifiers,com; Frank DeFina, senior vice president
of sales & marketing, Samsung Techwin; Albert Janjigian, principle,
Expedeum Inc.; Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications; Eric
Pritchard, partner, Kleinbard Bell & Brecker LLP; and Ron Worman, founder
and managing director, The Sage Group.
Entering the Fast50 is simple and easy. The deadline for entries is
Jan. 23, 2012. For more information on the formulas or the program,
