Convergint Technologies, a worldwide leader in service-based systems integration, has been named Southeast Regional Strategic Partner of the Year, West Regional Strategic Partner of the Year, and Overall Strategic Partner of the Year by partner Edwards United Technology, a leading fire and life safety solution provider. 

“I’ve been attending Edwards Strategic Partner Conferences for over 20 years.  In those years, I’ve watched other partners receive their due recognition for performance.  The October 2018 meeting was like a dream come true,” said Barry Yatzor, Vice President of Fire Alarm & Communications for Convergint Technologies. “Not only was Convergint recognized for having four $1 million Convergint Technology Centers, but also having our first ever $2 million Convergint Technology Center, in Seattle. From an individual location perspective, Seattle was the seventh largest Edwards partner in the U.S., and overall, Convergint was their largest U.S. customer.  I couldn’t be more proud of the entire Convergint team for these achievements, and their dedication to our customers and the fire alarm & life safety industry in general.”

The criteria for this award took the following categories into consideration:

  • Significant year-over-year growth
  • Outstanding market reputation
  • Strategic partner engagement
