AVTECH’s Room Alert environment monitors and sensors recognized as a finalist for “Product/Service of The Year” thanks to their importance in improving business continuity as part of an overall disaster recovery plan
January 22, 2020 Warren, RI – AVTECH Software, Inc. (AVTECH) has been announced as a ”2020 DRI International Awards of Excellence” finalist by Disaster Recovery Institute International, one of the world’s leading organizations dedicated to helping businesses and organizations improve their uptime and reliability.
Now in its 32nd year in business, AVTECH manufactures Room Alert, the world’s most popular environment monitor for business continuity plans. Room Alert is made in the USA and proactively monitors environment conditions such as temperature, humidity, flood, power, smoke, and more. Room Alert is currently used in 186 of 196 countries by organizations ranging from thousands of small businesses to Boeing, Sprint, Microsoft, over 80% of the Fortune 1000, the United Nations, and many government agencies.
Many business continuity plans include network and data monitoring that do not monitor environment factors that cause 30% of outages suffered by businesses. AVTECH’s Room Alert helps resolve this to provide users with ‘peace of mind’, knowing the environment threats that can cause data loss and downtime are being proactively monitored for early detection, which will drastically reduce downtime and loss of revenue.
“Being recognized by DRI International is a tremendous honor for us,” said Michael Sigourney, AVTECH Founder & CEO. “AVTECH’s mission is to help businesses and organizations of all sizes improve their business continuity plan and prevent downtime with our Room Alert monitors, sensors and software. Far too many organizations focus entirely on cybersecurity in their business continuity and disaster recovery plans, without accounting for the fact that 30% of their downtime and data loss will be directly caused by environment factors. DRI International recognizing our efforts in helping organizations around the world prevent downtime is a testament to our team’s hard work and ingenuity in constantly developing new and innovative environment monitoring technology.”
In addition to Room Alert environment monitors, AVTECH also provides the online RoomAlert.com Account portal and local software options for Room Alert monitoring, management, and reporting.
