Customer centric, which is not a new phrase, seems to be experiencing a recent surge in popularity. To me, it seemed like an odd term at first, because you can’t make a sale without a customer.

2016 saw video surveillance and security increasingly become the focus of mainstream media conversations, with video playing a pivotal role in bringing terror suspects to justice (as it did recently in NYC) and with police body worn cameras capturing sometimes controversial incidents that spark national conversations.

Integrators, resellers, vendors, and end-users can look to 2017 as a time of vigorous change for video surveillance and security.

As a small municipality in the shadow of a big city, the Town of Billerica, Massachusetts shares the same concerns as cities of any size would recognize: a need to keep its residents and visitors safe while maintaining a welcoming environment. To achieve this, the Billerica Police Department (BPD) believed it needed an upgrade to its analog camera system to register a better picture in case of an incident.
The 2017 Great Conversation is right around the corner and is shaping up to be an epic event. As in past Great Conversations, the Aronson Security Group (ASG) is focusing on forward thinking issues which impact Enterprise Security Risk Management.
