The performance of these products has increased Precision Edge’s visibility in the industry, and the company doubled its revenues and tripled its installations in 2005.

To effectively meet end-user needs in the BAS integration space, it is necessary to establish partnerships that will not only facilitate installation of company products, but also aid market expansion.
