Executive Summary Report. A Snapshot of Performance


Having a summary of critical information delivered monthly to your email can be a real cost saver for your business.

 

The NMC Alarm Company Executive Summary Report was designed to provide a snapshot of your business to help you
troubleshoot potentially troublesome accounts and manage telecom fees by providing accurate, targeted information in a convenient report, updated monthly and emailed directly to you.

 

Manage your central station relationship with precise information including:

 

  • An Account Growth Summary – a monthly breakdown of added and cancelled accounts and your net summary
  • A list of accounts having two or more dispatches in a one year period
  • A list of the accounts sending the most signals in the past 30 days

 

A service that sends a summary of the precise information your business needs, right to your desktop every month – we think you’re going to like this!

 


Keep Your IP. The Flexibility of Secure Forwarding


 

Internet-based alarm systems are changing the industry, and it is critical that alarm companies maintain portability when moving to internet-based alarm systems. NMC is once again leading the way with a program that allows you complete portability combined with the convenience of working with NMC.

 

Alarm companies must have the ability to control IP communications to central monitoring stations for internet-based alarm systems. Keep Your IP allows you to control the destination of your customers’ IP accounts. With your own secure IPv4 address, you can redirect or reroute to alternate IP destinations if accounts are sold, in disaster recovery situations or to change to another Central Station.

 

NMC will assist with the setup and implementation of Keep Your IP, allowing you the security and flexibility to direct (or reroute) your company’s growth.

 


Runaway Alert! We’ll Keep You Posted.


 

With Runaway Alert auto-message notification, NMC will let you know via email or text message when any account has received 75 or more signals within 24 hours.

 

Detecting a runaway panel can be essential in managing toll-free or cellular transmission costs. And, discovering an alarm panel problem at the early stage can help prevent a lack of security at the subscriber location in addition to preventing large phone bills – allowing you to maintain security for your customers while keeping costs down.

 

NMC’s data-driven research has shown that containing a runaway panel before it gets out of control can save you hundreds, or possibly thousands of dollars.

 

Stop Runaways before they can cause problems to your customers or your business. For more information or to add this free service to your NMC account, contact Dealer Support Service at 800.662.1711.

 

It’s free and it can save you money. What are you waiting for?

Risk Management Consulting

Risk management consulting – another NMC dealer benefit.


NMC has retained the services of the most knowledgeable person in the business of risk management for security operators. His name is Rick Gombar and he has been in the industry for decades. Why do you need Rick? Well, purchasing general liability insurance in the security business is complicated. First of all, there are only a handful of carriers that even write the coverage. And this limited market becomes a maze when you realize that every carrier writes the coverage differently. Most importantly, if you purchase insurance based strictly upon price, you could end up with serious coverage gaps and not even know it until you have a claim. 

 

Rick will help you negotiate this maze. If you are considering changing your policy or are wondering what your current policy will and will not cover, give Rick a call at 800.446.6227. He will be happy to review your policy and answer any questions you have about your coverage.

  • Technicians simply call in, enter the account number  and are immediately able to access the system.
  • You have a unique and efficient selling tool because your  techs are able to demonstrate to end-users how quickly  and easily they can reach the monitoring station.
  • End-users feel more secure knowing that less time = more security.

 

 


New end-user services – instant email and text notification (IN)


 

Instant Notification. If the panel will send it, we can relay it via text or email instantaneously. This is what end-users have been asking for and what gives you a step-up from the competition. With IN your customer will be instantly texted or e-mailed when any event signal occurs whether it’s:

 

  • Break-in
  • Fire
  • Open door
  • Closed by-pass
  • Friend or relative incapacitated
  • Low battery
  • Any trouble or non-violation event

 

Our IN features communications for any alarm. Your clients will love the security in immediately knowing when anything irregular is happening. IN also frees up urgent operative time to deal with more serious threats.
