Bill Markel, founder & CEO, created RSI when he recognized that the EMEA market was underserved by the leading, global, technology manufacturers. There were new and exciting products that were not being promoted in the region that was seemingly dominated by older, legacy products. The businesses, industries, and communities were simply being overlooked.
For over a decade, Relevant Secure Innovations has been committed to bringing innovative solutions to the EMEA market through its cooperative partner platform. We have built strong relationships with manufacturers and created a single point of service to provide regional clients with the systems they require. RSI assurance means the different products will work together and the integrator is not left to determine how to make them work, reducing risk and the time to implement and deploy.
The RSI experience begins with a complimentary consultation regarding your security and systems needs. Our offers extend far beyond our product directory, so we welcome your inquiry.
