Each year, the Pittsburgh Technology Council canvasses the region for the most distinguished public and private technology-oriented companies, and awards the fastest growing, top performing, and most innovative companies and CEOs the prestigious Tech 50 Award. 

This year, Savvior has been recognized as a finalist for Innovative Technology Solution Provider of the Year, in recognition for its work in the creation of long-time Savvior client Vector Security’s Dealer Portal App.   

Vector Security protects people and property by providing intelligent security solutions for hundreds of thousands of homes, businesses and multi-site retail chains across North America and the Caribbean. Vector has long turned to Savvior for its most strategic, innovative technology needs. Security is an ever-changing world, and it’s essential for Vector to have innovative, integrated business and technology systems in place to maintain its leadership position in the space.

Dealers are an incredibly important channel for business development for Vector. Savvior developed a ground-up new mobile Dealer Portal for all Vector dealers to interface with. The portal integrates with all billing and eCommerce systems, enables editing of customer information, and management of interactive services. The Dealer Portal is a sophisticated, deeply-integrated application enabling all Vector dealers to seamlessly interact with numerous applications and technologies in one portal.

Based in large part of the success of the Savvior-created Vector Security Dealer Portal, Vector Security was named SDM Magazine’s Dealer of the Year, the industry’s highest award. The portal provides a significant competitive advantage for our client.

As is the case with most Savvior-created web and mobile applications, the true competitive advantage comes from the deep integration to various data sources, turning data into usable information for both Vector and their affiliate dealers.

Commenting on the Savvior/Vector Security relationship, Art Miller, Vice President for Vector Security noted, “I have worked with Savvior for over 10 years because they deliver. Period. I have worked with a number of firms in the past through different companies. I would challenge anyone to find a better group to deliver a platform, when required -- make the impossible happen, and dedicated to doing it right. Their team of developers and project managers are the best out there. Whether my projects involve portal applications, eCommerce, interactive or some form of mobile solution, the first team I turn to is Savvior."
