Metis Secure expands footprint to Western US

MARCH 12, 2013

Metis Secure has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Seevid Inc., a large security technology rep company. Seevid will represent Metis Secure’s advanced emergency communications and notification systems in the Western US.

Educational institutions, industrial and research facilities, commercial office buildings, public sites, and large parking garages rely on their Metis Secure systems to help them respond rapidly and effectively in an emergency. The Metis Secure system includes wall- and pole-mounted indoor and outdoor Emergency Help Stations, managed by easy-to-use Metis Secure Command Center software. The software also serves as a platform for integrating other security and life safety systems, including mass text/email services, IP phones, handheld radios, hazmat detectors, access control, and other devices. The system operates on redundant communications and power supply networks, so it continues to work even when phone, internet, and power fail.

“We are very pleased about our partnership with Seevid,” said Mark Kurtzrock, President and CEO, Metis Secure. “They specialize in advanced, IP based technology, so they really understand what our system can do. We have been looking for a top-ledge representative to help scale and support our business in the Western US, and Seevid is a great fit.”

“Security integrators and their customers are increasingly looking for advanced, facility-based emergency communications technology,” said Don Coker, President, Seevid, Inc. “Metis Secure’s is the only system that ticks all the important boxes—it provides the ability to communicate targeted or broad emergency alerts and voice instructions; to connect a person in need directly with dispatchers or mobile security guards and identify the caller’s location; and to continue to communicate in a mass emergency that takes down other communications systems.”

Seevid will represent the Metis Secure system with national distributors, security integrators, and end-users.

Seevid, Inc. is a leading manufacturer’s representative of software, hardware, and system solution suppliers to the marketplace. Working through a network of authorized dealers and distributors, Seevid provides complete pre-sale and post-sale technical assistance, order entry service, and sales support.
