The Most Valuable Product (MVP) Awards recognize products that make a substantial impact on integrators and were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages, benefits to the installer or monitoring provider, and benefits to the end user.
“Now in its third year, SSI’s Most Valuable Products Awards has solidified its standing as not only one of the most credible programs of its kind for the electronic security industry but also the greatest value for entrants,” says Security Sales & Integration Editor-in-Chief/Associate Publisher Scott Goldfine. “It’s overwhelming for security integrators to keep up with the thousands of products introduced annually. SSI’s MVP Awards provides integrators the valuable service of distinguishing particularly noteworthy new products, and salutes the manufacturers responsible for them. Both factions benefit by having entries evaluated by independent security integrators and industry consultants. Congratulations to this year’s finalists and winners — you’ve earned it!”
All 45 were judged by a panel of experienced integrators and industry consultants. In addition to being recognized at ISC West 2017, winners’ products will be featured in the June issue of SSI, highlighted “callout” in the SecuritySales.com Product Awards section, social media coverage, and an earmarked newsletter article.
