Room Alert Wins First Place In 2021 Go Global Awards Property Tech Category

International Trade Council judges wowed by Room Alert PRO secure environment monitoring platform to protect facilities across the globe

October 19, 2021 Warren, RI – AVTECH Software (AVTECH) has earned another accolade on the international stage after being awarded first place in the International Trade Council’s 2021 Go Global Awards Property Tech category.

Now in its 33rd 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 187 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.

Go Global Awards judging took place virtually in September 2021, with AVTECH President & COO Richard Grundy representing Room Alert to the panel of international judges. The award for Property Tech was designated based on Room Alert PRO monitors, sensors, and software being deemed critical components of a business continuity plan by the panel. Additionally, Room Alert was recognized as a long-standing provider in the environment monitoring space thanks to AVTECH’s history of protecting facilities since 1988.

“Being recognized for Room Alert’s contributions to successful business continuity plans is always rewarding and humbling,” said Mr. Grundy. “These past two years have really emphasized the importance of monitoring properties and facilities to prevent downtime caused by environmental concerns, especially for organizations that are still in remote or hybrid work models. You can’t always have eyes and ears on your physical facilities, and Room Alert can ensure you always have insight into what’s happening with the environment in your facilities 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. More importantly, Room Alert monitors, sensors, and software offer data security and privacy features that have become so important to users around the world, and our international distribution allows us to have Room Alert products in customers hands the moment they need them… if not sooner. We are truly grateful for the recognition provided to our entire team by the International Trade Council with this award.”

Winning an Award is no small feat. We received a total of 6416 entries, coming from organizations in 178 countries. The breadth of award nominations was truly amazing,” said Kristal Parcon, head of the Awards Committee.

We are humbled by organizations such as AVTECH Software, Inc who, in the face of a global pandemic, have displayed leadership, resilience and innovation, while embracing change and supporting their employees and communities in a way never seen before.”
