SafetyCare’s new Partners

Thursday, January 1, 2009

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. and AUSTIN, Texas--SafetyCare on Nov. 4 announced two new additions to its national Authorized Partner Program. Lifecall, LLC of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., will now offer SafetyCare’s security monitoring and emergency response communication service to its clients in South Florida and the Treasure Coast, while Austin, Texas-based Independent Living Solutions will supply SafetyCare’s security and emergency response solutions to clients in central Texas.

Lifecall president Steve Palermo expects to see an increase in sales and satisfaction due to the partnership. “In evaluating the SafetyCare products and services, it was the quality of the product - the fact that it had a longer-lived battery than the competition,” Palermo said. “Especially down here in South Florida with the potential for hurricanes.”

SafetyCare general manager Michael Bodnar said the PERS industry is on the rise. “PERS is a hot topic now for a variety of reasons,” he said. “We have an aging population with the Baby Boomer generation coming to this kind of young senior category right now,” Bodnar said. “In competitive times and down economic times in the traditional security industry, I think that PERS has piqued the interest of your traditional burglar and fire alarm companies because it’s an alternative source for recurring revenue.”
