SafetyCareÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new Partners
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 SafetyCareÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 SafetyCareÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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. Ã¢â‚¬Å“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,Ã¢â‚¬Â Palermo said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Especially down here in South Florida with the potential for hurricanes.Ã¢â‚¬Â
SafetyCare general manager Michael Bodnar said the PERS industry is on the rise. Ã¢â‚¬Å“PERS is a hot topic now for a variety of reasons,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have an aging population with the Baby Boomer generation coming to this kind of young senior category right now,Ã¢â‚¬Â Bodnar said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“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 itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an alternative source for recurring revenue.Ã¢â‚¬Â
