Diebold Extends Monitoring Expertise to Regions Financials
Birmingham, Ala.-based Regions Financial Corporation, a full-service provider of banking, wealth management, mortgage and insurance solutions in the United States, has turned staffing of its in-house central monitoring station over to Diebold. Diebold associates, who helped the company twice earn the Central Station Alarm Association’s Central Station of the Year designation, will monitor alarm, video and other systems for Regions’ entire enterprise, including more than 2,400 sites.
"One of the primary benefits of using external experts to handle alarm and security monitoring is the reduction of a business’ overhead expenses for staffing and maintaining an in-house monitoring center," said Chris Sledzik, a spokesperson for Diebbold. "But, when a business has the infrastructure for high-tech monitoring already in place – as does Regions – it can still benefit from third-party support to enhance security, improve efficiencies and reduce costs."
