PSA Security Network, said to be the world’s largest electronic security cooperative, is expanding its market footprint to include the professional audio-visual and communications market.
The expansion will offer qualified systems integrators in the professional audio-visual/communications and physical security industries access to more than 170 industry-leading product lines through PSA Security Network.
“We are seeing more and more cross-over between the physical security and the audio-visual market on a daily basis,” says Bill Bozeman, president and CEO of PSA Security Network.
“The decision for us to expand our product offerings and begin offering the same value-add programs and services to the A/V market that we have offered to the security market for over forty years was a natural evolution for our company.”
The integrator cooperative says the market expansion will allow all of its members to:
- Be more competitive on A/V and security projects with discounted vendor pricing
- The ability to streamline their order processes
- The ability to gain access to education and training resources to help integrators keep pace with industry trends
