Micro Key Solutions Makes Big Statement

Thirty years ago, Atlee Mercer, an alarm dealer from Pennsylvania saw the growing need for a software solution designed specifically for the security alarm industry. Thus, Micro Key Software was born.  Founders Atlee Mercer and Wayne Torrens created a new space for software that was designed by and for alarm dealers to help meet the ever changing needs of dealers.

As they enter their 30th year as a company, Micro Key continues to reinvent themselves as a company and unveils a brand new logo, color scheme, tag line and new name. Micro Key Solutions will now be known as MKS.  The new logo keeps some similar elements including the iconic “key” logo that has been incorporated in their logo since the company started, but now has more clean and modern look. Along with the new company color scheme, another big change with the new logo is the incorporation of a new tagline, Rethink Automation. This replaces the previous Manage, Control, Succeed tagline and serves as more of a direct and clear statement to what the company offers the security alarm industry.

“As we enter our 30th year as a company, we realized this is the perfect time to debut this new branding for our company,” stated MKS President Victoria Ferro. “Reaching this milestone is a great accomplishment for us and I feel we have the industry’s leading central station, accounting and service solutions available along with  a highly talented and dedicated staff that will continue to allow MKS to thrive for the next 30 years and beyond.”

Since its start, MKS has longed promoted that they are much more than just a software company, they offer a complete solution to run your entire business. The new rebranding is a great way to kickoff this new era of the company and highlights growth and transformation while celebrating the company culture of the past thirty years.
