If you’re an alarm system dealer or security system integrator, you may have thought about working with a third-party wholesale central station monitoring service.
These services exist to help independent dealers sell monitoring services to their customers without incurring the overhead of providing their own monitoring center and staff. But some business owners are hesitant to consider going this route because of myths that may be circulating about outsourcing this key business function.
We’re here to bust these myths and give you the straight scoop on why you should consider working with a wholesale central station monitoring service. Read on to learn more!
- Myth: It’s Expensive
When you consider the time and cost to provide this service yourself, you’ll see that working with a third-party makes a great deal of financial sense. In fact, many wholesale central station providers structure their pricing to be competitive for end customers, while helping dealers make a nice markup in the process.
- Myth: It’s Complicated
It’s really not! And businesses that specialize in this service have worked out all of the kinks in order to provide you and your end customers with a seamless experience. Many wholesale central stations have dedicated Dealer Support team to facilitate all of your needs, so look for a provider that has this type of staff on hand and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to get started.
- Myth: It Takes Forever to Get Set Up
It’s true that transitioning all of your accounts to a new provider will take a little bit of time and effort, but as long as your chosen wholesale central station company has a dedicated team on hand to perform the conversion, it can go quickly and without issue. Plus, once your subscribers are set up with your new partner, they’ll allow you to work more efficiently and productively so that you can focus on what you do best.
- Myth: It Will Make My Business Look Bad
This is a big one, and it’s just not true! A qualified wholesale central station monitoring service will make your business look GREAT by effectively responding to alerts 24/7/365, while helping you manage your business in the process. In fact, some services even respond to calls using your business name in order to help build trust between you and your customers. So in most cases, your customers won’t even know you’re working with a third-party service.
As you can see, if you get past the myths, there are quite a few benefits to working with a wholesale central station monitoring service.
