RS2 Technologies Announces 3-Year Warranty

by Steve Sanko on 6/21/2015

Munster, IN – RS2 Technologies, LLC, a leading provider of access control systems, has announced that, in an unprecedented move, the company is tripling (from one year to a full three years) its warranty on all of the Mercury Security hardware products it sells. “We are extremely pleased to be able to announce this ‘best-in-class’ warranty,” said Doug Robinson, RS2 Managing partner. “We are able to expand our hardware warranty from one year to three years because of the outstanding success we’ve had with Mercury hardware over the past 15 years. I could quote you all the technical statistics, such as the exceptional MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) numbers, etc., but the bottom line is that the Authentic Mercury hardware that we utilize in our access control solutions is the ultimate in reliability. It is absolutely bulletproof.”

Dave Barnard, RS2 Director of Dealer Development, expanded on Robinson’s comments. “Over the course of our relationship with Mercury, we have shipped more than 100,000 units of assorted Mercury hardware. The reliability of those units –coupled with our powerful, user-friendly RS2 Access It!® access control software– has allowed us to achieve double-digit sales growth in almost every one of our 15 years of operation. It allows us to offer our dealers and integrators –as well as our end-users– what are simply the most reliable, lowest TCO (total cost of ownership), scalable open-platform access control solutions in the industry. As we start 2015 with this exceptional expansion of our warranty, we are projecting yet another year of double-digit growth.”

In commenting on RS2’s expanded warranty announcement, Steve Lucas, Director of Business Development at Mercury Security, noted that “RS2 is one of our oldest and most valued customers. As one of our very select group of Platinum Elite Partners, they are an outstanding example of the type of customer-partner that we value here at Mercury Security. They are fully committed to the Mercury concept of reliable, open-platform solutions.”

RS2’s Robinson summed up the announcement by saying “This announcement is another example of how we have attempted to expand and strengthen every phase of our operation, whether it’s warehousing & shipping, sales management & training, technical support, or, as in this case, tremendously enhanced value to our customers. This program has been working well for us and continues to do so.”
