Jay Slaughterbeck, a managing partner of Strategic Security Solutions, a security systems integrator based in Raleigh, NC, told â€Security System Newsâ€ that the company is â€œon track to have our biggest year ever in 2016â€. He also indicated that the company was due to exceed $6 million in business, due in large part to sustainable growth from large customers and major projects. Jay explained: â€œThe growth is all organic and when you bring on big customers, you get a lot of recurring service and expansion-type revenue.â€
Another area in which Slaughterbeck says the company is growing is in the use of cloud technology: â€œThe biggest new thing that we have embraced is cloud-based, or cloud-hosted technology,â€ he explained. â€œWe are doing a lot in that space and trying to do more. In instances where smaller customers donâ€™t have the level of IT support needed, it eliminates that requirement but still allows them to have the functionality of a true enterprise solution.â€ The growth of cloud-based solutions from Strategic Security Solutions has also partially occurred due to the companyâ€™s improved customer education attempts. Many customers did not initially understand the benefits of cloud-based solutions, but Slaughterbeck believes that Strategic Security Solutions has started the positive momentum towards cloud-based integrated security solutions.
Strategic Security Solutions has 12 employees and is the subsidiary of Strategic Connections, which does AV, fire alarm, phone systems and structured wiring. As a result, Strategic Security has ready access to its parent company?s technicians, and also derives sales leads from its parent company.
