Why TycoIS Is a Top Performer

Using customer-style surveys to fine tune its operations and improve customer service led to Tyco Integrated Security being named runner-up for SSI‘s 2015 Installer of the Year program.

Tyco Integrated Security (TycoIS) is no stranger to the Installer of the Year winner’s circle, having captured the honor in 2013. A business unit of Tyco, the Boca Raton, Fla-headquartered business employs 7,500+ employees in 150 locations who serve around a half-million commercial clients throughout North America. TycoIS helps protect 80% of the world’s top retailers, two-thirds of the nation’s busiest airports, eight of the top 10 banking institutions and every U.S. federal courthouse. The provider also operates fully redundant, UL-certified monitoring facilities.

During the year, TycoIS emphasized voice of the customer-style surveys to fine tune its operations and improve customer service. This third-party surveying produces monthly reports and metrics to assure customer expectations are met. These efforts have earned TycoIS consecutive Confirmit ACE (Achievement in Customer Excellence) Awards, recognizing outstanding achievement in customer satisfaction.
