Elvey – successful expo

Equipped with a good game plan, a driven team, amazing support from suppliers and customers; Elvey Security Technologies has once again succeeded in promoting customer centricity by bringing quality solutions personally to customers. Set on a backdrop of some of South Africa’s most spectacular sporting stadiums; this year’s Expo kicked off in Port Elizabeth at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium, and the finale was held at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

“We believe in providing the market with the most convenient ways of accessing the latest and best in electronic security solutions,” says Jack Edery, CEO of Elvey. “We have over 20 branches throughout sub-Saharan Africa that not only serve as our key distribution network in bringing our product offering to our customers, but also go the extra mile in providing premium service.”</h4

The Expo created a valuable learning and interactive experience for all involved. It provided a platform where Elvey could listen to customers’ needs and begin building tailored solutions for each unique request. Attendees had the opportunity of networking with highly knowledgeable sales staff and product specialists at information sessions that where held throughout the day.


New product launches

At this year’s Expo, Elvey launched a new in-house initiative called Blue Label. Blue Label is where Elvey offers additional services or product benefits to customers over and above current value added offerings. Wherever you see the Elvey Blue Label symbol you will find a commitment made to go above even their usual high standards of service and support. It’s a pledge that when you see the Elvey Blue Label symbol Elvey has gone above and beyond to deliver you peace of mind. Ultimately, that’s what the company strives for.
