Johnson Controls and Punch Technologies Partner to Deliver Safety Communications Platform

The PunchAlert security communications platform is said to give businesses the ability to create safer and more intelligent environments.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Johnson Controls and Punch Technologies have finalized an agreement to bring a safety communications platform to market.

The platform, which can be integrated into businesses’ existing security systems, provides the opportunity to more easily and effectively communicate with employees, emergency responders and other surrounding businesses in the event of an emergency incident, according to the companies.

Under the terms of the agreement, Johnson Controls will be the primary distributor of PunchAlert by Punch Technologies.

PunchAlert, launched in 2014, is a platform designed to continuously innovate and solve customer pain points based on insights gained from partnerships.

“Our partnership with Johnson Controls is a tremendous step forward and is an opportunity for us to partner with a global leader in safety,” says Greg Artzt, co-founder and CEO of Punch Technologies. “We will build on this exciting relationship to deliver safety communications for a wide range of public and private enterprises, first responders, campuses and communities.”

Hank Monaco, vice president, marketing, Johnson Controls, says, “In today’s always-evolving landscape of emergency events, it’s critical for businesses to have the necessary tools to easily and effectively communicate emergency plans and procedures with employees and building occupants. This agreement is a continuation of Johnson Controls’ commitment to public safety by providing enterprises with a mechanism to report and react to emergencies and a means to further bolster security systems and safety procedures.”

Building on its portfolio of offerings, Punch Technologies will also launch Rescue, which the company claims is the most advanced safety wearable ever, in the first quarter of 2020.
