Corps Security has announced an exclusive contract with VtecZoom, an installer of CCTV and access control. The agreement will mean that all VtecZoom’s clients can now use the Corps Monitoring Centre (CMC), and take to the company’s other services. Based in Standish, Lancashire, and with offices in Washington, Tyne and Wear, VtecZoom has been installing and maintaining CCTV and access control for the last 25 years. The company has a dedicated customer technical helpdesk and is accredited to SSAIB and ISO9001.
For the last six years VtecZoom has been a customer of the CMC, and has also used other remote monitoring centres – until now. Bob Lister the company’s managing director, said: ‘We have previously chosen not to have an exclusive contract with any one remote monitoring centre. We believe that the CMC is without doubt a leading facility of its kind, which is why we have decided to agree an exclusive contract with it so that all our clients can benefit.’
Based in Glasgow, the CMC provides alarm receiving and CCTV monitoring services to a range of customers across market sectors on an independent basis, or as part of an integrated service incorporating manpower and technology.
‘This facility exemplifies Corps Security’s commitment to innovation and forward thinking,’ said Eric Roberts, Corps Security’s CMC business development director. ‘It is one of the most advanced monitoring facilities in the UK and we have also attained National Security Inspectorate (NSI) Gold accreditation to go with our existing BS 8418 and ISO 9001:2008 certifications.’
The CMC and VtecZoom recently announced strategic partnerships with Avigilon, the IP CCTV product firm. Avigilon’s Control Center HD network video management software has already been integrated into the CMC and Corps Security is stimulating interest about the system among its approved installers and end users. At the same time VtecZoom is promoting the technology to its clients.
Corps Security’s Eric Roberts added: ‘I’m delighted that VtecZoom has decided to enter into an exclusive contract with the CMC and this means that it is now our largest customer. The fact that it is confident enough to do this is testament to the unrivalled level of service that we offer and our forward thinking attitude to what we do. I look forward to developing the relationship between our companies and raising the bar even further in terms of what the CMC can offer.”
