AlliedBarton to introduce strategic partnership program at ASIS 2010

Company also announces healthcare reform and military personnel support initiatives at tradeshow


DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - 10/11/10) - AlliedBarton Security Services, www.AlliedBarton.com, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, reaffirms its focus on providing high quality security officer services and introduces a new Strategic Partnership program and healthcare reform and military personnel support initiatives at ASIS International 2010, booth #1923, from October 12-14, at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.

"There is a need for high quality security officer services, and AlliedBarton fills that need through our ongoing focus on our core business," explained Bill Whitmore, President and CEO, AlliedBarton Security Services. "Our clients entrust us with the safety and security of their properties and employees because they know that is our top priority. Our programs and initiatives are designed to meet our customers' needs in ways that supports our core business."

AlliedBarton has identified a customer need for technology products and supplemental services. Through the Strategic Partnership program, AlliedBarton brings carefully evaluated, best-in-class products and services to its customers while continuing to focus on providing quality security services.

"By partnering with the best technology and service companies, we can offer our customers a range of products customized to meet their needs," Whitmore continued. "If we were to lock into a single, proprietary system, it would limit our offerings to our customers and most importantly, take our focus away from our security officer services."
In addition to setting the standard in technology and service partnerships, AlliedBarton's commitment to a leadership culture is demonstrated by helping customers and employees prepare for healthcare reform. David Buckman, AlliedBarton Executive Vice President and General Counsel , and Doug Levit, Healthcare Reform Practice Leader and Director of Actuarial Services, Alliant Insurance Services, Inc., will present "Healthcare Reform -- Costs, Compliance and Communication" (session 4107, room D162) an education session on October 14 at 11 a.m.

"The recent Healthcare reform legislation has far-reaching impacts, and employers are expected to be in compliance with new requirements as soon as 2011," said Buckman. "The physical security sector, and other personnel industries, will face significant compliance challenges. It is vital that the service personnel sector understands how healthcare reform will impact their business."

As part of our core service of security officer services AlliedBarton places great emphasis on recruiting and believes that hiring military veterans and reservists helps us achieve our business objectives while providing vital support to the community. AlliedBarton is working with the Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, Military.com, HireVeterans.com, and the Wounded Warriors Project to proactively maximize recruitment from this extremely qualified talent pool. "If your recruiting strategy fails to include military veterans, you are missing out on working with some of our country's most outstanding men and women," explained Whitmore. "We recognize the extraordinary leadership qualities veterans bring to the workplace and are proud to partner with organizations who are dedicated to supporting those who serve our country."
