The full report on winners of the 2012 SD&I Fast50: America's Fastest Growing Systems Integrators


Why we grew…Advanced Cabling Systems “Two things have attributed to the growth at Advanced Cabling over the past three years. First, we have added products to our offerings, such as AV and nurse call, that complement our current product set and allow us to continue to be a single point of contract for our clients in terms of building technology and life safety. Additionally, we have added a dedicated engineering and CADD department to our organization. This differentiates us as more of a professional services provider and not just a low price installer. Finally, we have added IT staff over the past three years. We have CICSO certified technicians on-staff that understand networking principles. This has allowed us to stay a step ahead and differentiate ourselves as we help our clients migrated to an IP-based world.” —Michael Kennedy RCDD/NTS, president


Why we grew…Will Electronics “I attribute our growth to adapting to the changing video markets from analog to IP video platforms. We have been an analog video integration company for over 30+ years and roughly about 4 years ago starting offering IP video platforms. Currently do about 70% of our video installations are all IP video based platforms. Also using our key manufacturer’s product offerings, we able to offer to our customers truly integrated security platforms that include the video surveillance and access control systems in one unified platform.”—Jeff Byrd, VSSD II, Sales Manager
