Warren, Rhode Island manufacturer of Room Alert environment monitors awarded for their commitment to their staff, customers, and vendors

May 4, 2022 Warren, RI – AVTECH Software (AVTECH) is excited to announce that it has once again been named a “Best Place To Work In Rhode Island” by the Providence Business News.  

Now in its 34th 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.

AVTECH’s commitment to their team members was one of the key factors in awarding a “Best Place To Work” designation, based on the award criteria used by the Providence Business News. Employees heralded the company’s commitment to providing a safe and productive environment for all team members, with the flexibility to work in the office, in a hybrid model, or fully remote. Additionally, the company’s fully funded healthcare program was cited by many of the team along with the strong communication provided by management daily. Many of the employees surveyed anonymously as part of the program felt that the company made every effort to keep them aware of all company developments, ongoing projects, and future plans; this helps provide a strong sense of community among the staff along with a sense of direction and purpose among all the departments.

“These past few years have provided a number of challenges that we never could have anticipated,” said Richard Grundy, AVTECH President & COO. “We want to make sure we provide our entire team with an environment where they feel valued and safe not only for themselves, but for their families as well. Taking this approach has showed our commitment to our team and promoted a productive and encouraging workspace. Providing consistent information and updates to our team has always been a priority for us, and it’s truly humbling to know that our team’s feedback as part of this program has led to our second ‘Best Places To Work’ award in a row.”

In addition to Room Alert environment monitors, AVTECH also offers a wide range of digital, switch and analog sensors designed to help users monitor as many environment conditions as possible to help protect their facilities. Room Alert is a crucial part of any organization’s business continuity plan, as it allows users to fully monitor environment conditions in their data centers, server rooms, and facilities that can cause unexpected downtime.
