Tri-Ed Customer Realizes Great Expectations

Customer loyalty programs rewards users with points toward gifts


Woodbury, New York - June, 2007 - BCI Technologies, Inc. is just one happy customer who's benefited from Tri-Ed's Great Expectations program. The customer loyalty program rewards customers with points on every purchase made at Tri-Ed. It also doles out bonus points for the purchase of participating manufacturers' products.

Tim Walsh, Vice President/Operations Mgr. for the Grand Prairie, Texas based BCI, has turned to Tri-Ed for years. "Tri-Ed provides us with a solid distribution model for products and accommodates our needs. They also bring us leads and customers and greet us with friendly faces. It's been a long-term partnership for us."

BCI purchases a broad spectrum of products from Tri-Ed, spanning intrusion, fire, access and CCTV. With the prize points he racked up, Walsh redeemed a set of Calloway golf clubs. "They're beautiful clubs," he says. "I just hope they can improve my golf game!" Great Expectations, indeed.

Tri-Ed's program has delivered added value to dealers and integrators as well as to manufacturers. "Great Expectations was designed to reward our loyal customers and provide a better vehicle for suppliers to build their brands. It's truly a win-win proposition," notes James Rothstein, Tri-Ed's Senior Vice President.
