First Quartix customer still on board for 15th anniversary celebrations
Launched on 14 February 2001, Quartix has grown from just four founders into an international business with offices in the UK, France and the US and installations of almost 250,000 units for more than 7,000 customers.
Although these days Quartix has a sales team of almost a dozen dedicated people, back in 2001 it was up to founding director, Andy Walters, to seek out their first customer. He called every security company listed in the phonebook but only one, Broadland Guarding Services Ltd, called him back.
The one-month trial has become a 15-year partnership that has also seen Broadland introduce Quartix to other clients. In fact, Quartix has installed 200+ units based on those introductions. The technology has evolved, but some of their oldest units are still installed in Broadland Guarding’s fleet and still working hard.
“We have stayed with Quartix for fifteen years because the system provides us with everything we require it to do,” said Phil House, director of Broadland Guarding. “We have always found the units to be efficient and reliable and the company to be customer-focused and approachable. Our founder, the late Brian Geary, was always very proactive in giving local companies with innovative ideas a chance, and Quartix proved to be one of the success stories. He was proud that we were their first customer. We look forward to continuing our partnership for the next 15 years. Congratulations to everyone at Quartix.”
