FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — Security Sales & Integration was proud to announce the winners of its 2021 Sales and Marketing Awards (SAMMYs) today during a special online presentation.
The SAMMY Awards program, now in its 26th year, is the only one of its kind in the security industry to recognize and honor dealers and integrators for their marketing, business, installation and overall excellence.
Typically hosted as a gala affair on the eve of ISC West in Las Vegas, the uncertainty regarding restrictions and protocols as a result of COVID-19 moved the SAMMYs online for the second consecutive year. However, this gave finalists the opportunity to submit videos with insights and best practices for the categories they were nominated in.
SSI received more than 160 entries from installing and monitoring security systems contractors from throughout North America for this year’s program. You can view every finalist’s submission in the slideshow.
