Stanley Convergent Security Solutions Receives Honeywell’s Pro-Watch Gold Certification Nationally.

Naperville, IL (March 10, 2011)—Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (Stanley CSS) announces its achievement of Gold Certification in Honeywell’s Service Certification program for the Pro-Watch® Security Management platform. Gold Certification is an honor reserved for security integrators that demonstrate a high level of expertise and commitment in Honeywell’s Enterprise level systems and products.

This national certification includes all of Stanley CSS’s 65+ U.S. locations serving the nation’s largest metropolitan areas as well as the Stanley CSS Convergence Center of Excellence (CCE). Gold Certification acknowledges an integrator’s dedication to investing in training and certification of Honeywell products and services for their sales staff, engineers and technicians.

“Having security system integrators who understand our technology inside and out is beneficial for Honeywell, but it also greatly helps integrators who are constantly striving to create innovative and effective solutions for unique security challenges,” said Scott Harkins, president and general manager of Honeywell Systems. “Conversely, this program helps us enhance our technology through long-term partnerships with top integrators and we know Stanley has great insights to share.”

To be gold certified, Stanley CSS met Honeywell’s qualifying criteria for service performance on Honeywell’s enterprise-level products within the areas of project management, product training, technical expertise, CAD capabilities, test facilities, support software agreements, Microsoft certifications and customer satisfaction.

“While some regional or smaller providers may hold Pro-Watch certification, it is important to remember that Stanley CSS can deliver Gold Level Certification every time in every region across the country,” said Jim Kopplin, Chief Operating Officer. “Our branches have the expertise and certification to deliver gold level services and more, demonstrating Stanley CSS’s commitment not only to our customers, but to leading the industry in operational excellence and innovative security solutions.”
