BCDVideo has announced its new A&E Security Specifiers program, which can be registered online through the BCDVideo website. This bespoke program enables planners to capitalize on BCD’s two decades of experience and partnerships through an easy-to-use online portal that offers ample technical resources, ongoing training and expert assistance. With the help of the nifty A&E task force that BCD has put together for this program, consultants have direct access to BCD technology specialists who can provide the most up-to-date product specifications and advanced instructions. The program is available to security specifiers internationally.
Through BCDVideo’s A&E program, consultants have access to a variety of tools to design custom solutions while leveraging BCD’s trusted video surveillance solutions to create the best security system and customer satisfaction. The online portal provides 24/7 access to technical documentation and resources, including CSI MasterFormat 2020 specifications, system designs, product images and datasheets, calculators, and MSRP prices. This enables consultants to find answers to many product specifications without waiting for an answer. In addition, ongoing training on virtualization, accelerated computing for AI, network infrastructure, and current video storage trends will be available to keep specifiers on how emerging technologies will affect growth and convergence. Program registration begins with a one-hour, virtual Lunch & Learn to introduce BCD’s products, technologies and professional services and learn how the A&E program resources support system design and provide guaranteed, bespoke project solutions.
BCD’s renowned support services are also enhanced through the A&E program. Designated task force experts provide project consulting, design support and verification to remove risk and liability from the specifiers and to assist integrators in winning the offer. A key differentiator from other A&E programs is that BCDVideo guarantees that the proposed design will fit and work as intended, or that the deficit will be corrected at their own expense, giving partners the ultimate project guarantee.
“We are excited and proud to launch the BCDVideo A&E program,” said Maureen Carlo, director of strategic alliances for North America. “Consultants need resources they can trust so that they can accurately design reliable, resilient security systems and recommend solutions that meet the needs and budget of their clients. BCD has the resources to provide this guide – and if we don’t have a specific answer, we partner with some of the largest technology and software manufacturers in the world – an alliance that supports our program. “
Value creation for security specifiers
Positive feedback is already being generated from the first members of BCDVideo’s A&E program.
“I am delighted that BCD is taking these next steps with its A&E program to build stronger individual relationships and provide critical tools and information to the advisory community,” said Ray Coulombe, Managing Director, SecuritySpecifiers. “These actions should be of great value to security specifiers.”
“BCD has done an excellent job creating a useful resource for the A&E community,” said Frank Pisciotta, CSC, President and CEO of Business Protection Specialists, Inc. “I’m just starting out with the BCDVideo A&E program perceived as an excellent resource. You have set the bar high for the connection to the security-specific advisory community. “
As the video data infrastructure continues to change rapidly, it is critical that consultants have evolved resources and expert support that enable them to deliver high quality, targeted solutions to clients. The new A&E program from BCDVideo offers a dynamic and valuable platform, especially in combination with many years of expertise, strategic partnerships and unparalleled offerings of video data infrastructure. Security consultants around the world can use the BCDVideo A&E program to bring together powerful industry knowledge, support and products to create successful solutions for various customers.
