Where It All Began

CERTIFIED ALARMS, a 22-year-old security integration company based in Louisiana, has stepped into the wholesale monitoring market by launching a new company with a new central station, GLOBAL MONITORING SOLUTIONS GMS handles Certified’s accounts, which previously were monitored by another third-party central and offers additional customers and alarm dealers the same service.  While the same people own GMS, Certified Alarms is our first customer.  GMS will tap the industry background of its owners, Jan and Rusty Howard, to provide dealers with a partnership that goes beyond the monitoring of accounts. We want to use the experience that [our owners] have from running an installing company for the last 22 years and building one from the ground up, on giving advice on what has worked and what has helped us market ourselves better.  We also have staff at our monitoring facility who are trained on search engine optimization and marketing techniques. We want to give advice. We want our dealers to come visit when they want and learn from us on how they can better grow their company. The partnership with dealers extends to a commitment to invest in the latest technology and communications tools. – ORIGINAL ARTICLE BY:  Rich Miller (Click Here to Read Article.)
