Stanley Opens First ProtectionNet(TM) Customer Service Centre in United Kingdom

Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (Stanley CSS), part of Stanley Black & Decker, announces the opening of its first European ProtectionNet Customer Service Centre in the United Kingdom, an industry leading data and monitoring centre that provides capacity to monitor over 50,000 customers across the UK.

Utilising Stanley’s global solutions platform to offer a comprehensive range of monitoring services, the new state-of-the-art Stanley ProtectionNet Customer Service Centre (PNC) provides customers with eManagement tools including Stanley’s industry-leading eServices.  The new advanced monitoring platform has the capability of ECV (Enhanced Call Verification) traditional intrusion, Sonitrol Audio Verification and advanced Video Verification monitoring, in addition to Fire Alarm monitoring and managed access control services. 

The Stanley PNC will be among the largest central stations in the United Kingdom.  Renowned for its commitment to operational excellence, unparalleled customer service and partnering with customers to meet their security, safety and business needs, Stanley’s market-leading, advanced security technology underscores the company’s philosophy and commitment to protecting people, not just property. 

Sonitrol Verified Electronic Security:

Advanced Security Protection with Audio Impact Technology

Among the new Stanley PNC services offered, Sonitrol Verified Electronic Security provides audio impact verified intrusion alarms for customers wanting comprehensive protection for all types of threats, fast police response and a high apprehension rate.  Proven in tens of thousands of locations around the globe, the technology provides complete volumetric wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling impact activated audio verification protection. Once the sound of an intrusion is detected, the audio clip is immediately sent to Stanley’s ProtectionNet Centre where audio monitoring specialists review the recording and listen live to the local premise. 

This advanced technology, in conjunction with the trained Sonitrol monitoring specialists, is the leading factor in high apprehension rates, over 160,000 apprehensions around the globe and counting, as well as low false alarm rates.  Law enforcement gets the additional benefit of having live updates from the operator on what they hear and what is happening as the break-in occurs. 

Stanley’s Suite of On-line eServices: Leadership and Innovation Excellence

Stanley’s commitment to data transparency is the foundation in which Stanley builds customer relationships.  Through its suite of eServices, which includes complementary and premium value-added services, this program is leading the alarm industry in data and information for customers to manage their businesses more securely and productively. Stanley’s eServices provides customers with the important security information they need -- when they need it -- with real-time security information from a full portfolio of online management tools including eDataManager, eAccountManager, eAudioManager, eAccessManager and eVideoManager.

With Stanley’s eServices, customers have access to an unprecedented level of information.  From how many installations have been completed on schedule, to how many service calls were performed over a given time period.  With real-time data and intuitive navigation, customers will quickly establish eServices as a favourite “go-to” tool for their day-to-day security administration process.

Commenting on the launch of the PNC, Alistair Compton, Stanley CSS’s UK Operations Director said: “Stanley’s customer focused philosophy of protecting people, not just property, has led to an approach that delivers real peace of mind. In the UK, the new Stanley PNC will be geared to reflect this philosophy, by delivering stellar security services to customers.”
