MINNEAPOLIS - A two-location contract central station active on the East Coast is now planning to target dealers out West by opening a third, redundant central station here in one of the MidwestÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s major markets.
PHOENIX - A nearly $300,000 investment in new computers for central station dispatch personnel and supervisory staff at ACM UL Monitoring Station, a contract central station based here, wasÃ‚Â completedÃ‚Â last month, nearly two years after the company finished a remodel of the central station that added additional space.
The project, which saw the installation of two Intel Pentium III hot swap redundant computers, also improved the speed of Net Link,Ã‚Â ACMÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dealer web access and the serviceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s associated software.
