"Fiscal Year ending June 30? Get monitoring in your next budget... "

Don't Wait...
Use these 3 tips to get alarm
monitoring in your next budget.
Don't wait...

If you're a state government or other entity whose fiscal year ends on June 30, now is the time to get monitoring into your upcoming budget.

You need to start early to make sure funding is available. If you think you can't afford monitoring, just imagine how much your next outage will cost you - time, dollars, and overall grief.

These 3 tips will help you to get mission-critical monitoring gear in your budget:

  1. Act fast before funding is allocated
    You don't have long before budget planning is complete. You need to get your requests in soon if you want to be included in the next budget cycle. Call DPS, learn about your options, and...
  2. Get a budgetary proposal
    Getting a proposal from DPS is your first step toward proving value to management. DPS Telecom proposals are way more than a price list - you'll get case studies, application drawings, and a complete executive summary. Don't waltz up to your manager and "wing it." Get information in print that proves you've done your homework.
  3. Get an alarm monitoring ROI Analysis
    If you go to your manager asking for funding, you'd better be able to justify the expense. Even if you ARE the manager, you'd better be able to justify the expense.

    To help you prove the value of alarm monitoring, DPS offers a complimentary ROI analysis. Just by answering a few questions about your current operations, you'll get a detailed picture of your estimated savings from improved alarm monitoring. You'll learn how quickly the system should
    pay for itself, and how much you're losing every day without good monitoring gear.

It's also a good idea to find out if you having any budget money left over this year. Alarm monitoring infrastructure - on a dollar-for-dollar basis - is often just a small fraction of the cost of other telemetry gear.

You might find that you can provide your sites with critical monitoring protection with "leftover" budget from this year.

Budget not large enough for full system deployment?

This is not an uncommon situation in this age of tightening budgets. But, how do you balance the need for proper alarm monitoring within the remainder of your budget? How do you address the mandates for better monitoring?

System deployment within your budget

First of all, by using a DPS alarm master, you have already achieved a substantial budget savings while achieving an amazing level of functionality. However, the real issue relates to RTU deployment strategies. Many of our clients have adopted a policy which deploys RTUs over several budget cycles. This not only helps with the CAP-X budget, it also puts less strain on the technical / installation resources.
