A message from Craig Patterson, Director of Vendor Management
There have been some exciting new additions to the PSA line card recently. Just within the last couple of months, we've added Seneca (video server and storage solutions), Vunetrix (network health monitoring solutions) and Vanderbilt (access control). We’re always looking for quality vendor partners who can provide the best solutions at the best price and provide our line card with the proper mix of offerings.
To better maximize the business relationship of our key vendor partners, as well as streamline their respective product offerings, PSA has continued the process of thoroughly reviewing each of our vendors to help assure a productive line card going forward. In our efforts to eliminate some of the product offering duplication in maintaining 155 vendor partners, we have taken another step in cutting this list down to a more manageable number. Below is a list of vendors whose product lines will no longer be offered through PSA (effective 8/01/2013):
- Alarm Lock
- Cernium (Check Video)
- Quintron Systems
- VES Fire Detection Systems
- VidSec, LLC
Each of the aforementioned vendors (all of whom generated less than $20k of sales for PSA in FY13) has been notified of their pending cut. Additional cuts will be forthcoming, but will require much more due diligence, as well as continued input/feedback from all faucets of PSA corporate, our owners and our customers.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments regarding PSA’s move to a leaner and meaner line card.
