New Avenues of RMR

By: Deborah O’Mara - Published in Security Dealer & Integrator magazine - July 2014

The changes in the systems integration industry over the last several years have been mind-boggling. But any consternation over what’s happening can, with a little imagination, be turned into new avenues of recurring monthly revenue (RMR).

It is not just the traditional systems integration industry that has been affected. Every low voltage discipline — from contractors who play in the residential sound space, to IT providers who focus on network controls and infrastructure — is facing dwindling hardware profit margins.

NEW YORK, NY Few companies with- stand the test of time like Idesco Corp. The New York Real Estate Journal sat down with its princi- pal, Andrew Schonzeit, to discuss how.
NYREJ: Andy, after 66 years Idesco continues to flourish, can you explain how?
AS: Idesco prides itself on adapta- tion. We identify what we believe are going to be future industry trends, spend a considerable amount of time and money in learning about them and then if we feel that they warrant it, we invest in them. We are conservative in our approach and rather than dive right in we take our time to make sure that our decisions are sound.

Safety & Security - Overconfidence is our Biggest DANGER

By: Joel Hershkowitz, Idesco Corporation

There’s a famous old saying: “You can be safe a hundred times, but you only die once.” A group of miners enter a mine every work day for years, uneventfully. Suddenly one day, shortly after they enter there is an explosion and  many of them are killed or injured. An owner/pilot of a small plane is interviewed on the radio and explains how safe flying is. Three days later he flies into a building and is killed. A skyscraper is filled with security devices of   all kinds and is guarded on all sides. A huge airliner deliberately crashes into it, destroying the building and killing almost everyone inside the building.
