What would it be like to win a top industry award? What is it worth to your company in terms of marketing or sales? You may not have thought of this angle. But, given the benefits, it’s an important reason to apply for our Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award – given annually to the company that demonstrates the best alarm management and reduction program in a specific jurisdiction.
What’s a feature story in one of the top security trade publications worth? If you’re like most companies, you covet that type of coverage. If you don’t apply, you can’t win.
How proud would you feel to have your peers recognize your company? By winning the PDQ, expert industry judges from SIAC and the False Alarm Reduction Association (FARA) rank and reward the best entry. Being selected means your peers know what your company has done to build the highest alarm management standards into your operating practices.
There is still time for you to enter. To speed the process for you, this year we’ve streamlined the form to make things simpler. We hope that helps some.
We also have a constructive suggestion for you – the progressive electronic security company. Consider selecting a responsible employee and put that person in charge of pulling together your materials. You need a specific individual to steward the necessary materials through your company’s process. This is an important step you can take to put your firm in the mix for this prestigious industry award.
One last plug: Beyond the good you do in improving alarm management standards, winning the PDQ establishes you as a cutting edge company in the electronic security industry, one that leads rather than follows. If you win, that means you can use the award to promote your company to customers, which differentiates you from your competitors in a positive way. Think about it. It’s one more reason to apply.
