Vector Security® Networks was named ‘Supplier of the Year’ by office supply retailer Staples at their 2017 Global Loss Prevention Conference.
PITTSBURGH, May 11, 2017 – Vector Security Networks, the single source solutions provider for managed network services and physical security to multi-site businesses across North America, was named “Supplier of the Year” by business-to-business solutions partner Staples at their 2017 Global Loss Prevention Conference in New Castle, NH earlier this month. This is the second time the company was recognized by Staples for this award, receiving the honor in 2014.
The award recognizes Vector Security Networks for supporting Staples’ business strategy on delivery services and focus on online ordering. Using their trademark consultative approach, Vector Security Networks experts listened to the company’s needs, then put a team and process in place that fast tracks projects linked to Staples’ new strategy while still accommodating for site surveys, defining project scope, and installation. The process to get one of these new warehouse spaces operational requires extremely tight turnaround times and precise coordination by everyone involved. In the early stages of the program, Vector Security Networks worked closely with the Loss Prevention team to provide an access control system directly integrated with the alarm
system, which greatly reduced overall costs of the equipment and installation needed.
“We are a nimble team that has reacted to the changing needs of Staples’ business, and all done while taking the burden of management off of the Loss Prevention team wherever possible,” said Vector Security Networks National Account Manager Mark Townshend. “We look forward to a continued successful partnership and further supporting the Staples organization.”
“Staples has been a customer of Vector Security Networks for over 15 years. The highest honor we as a service provider can receive is recognition from our customer for delivering solutions and adding value to their organization,” said Michael T. Grady, Executive Vice President, Vector Security Networks. “We are thankful for our partnership with Staples and proud to be selected as their Supplier of the Year.”
Among the LP solutions Vector Security Networks currently provides to Staples are intrusion and fire alarm monitoring, installation and service; video surveillance; and access control.
