Detroit, Michigan, September 20, 2023 — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions for enterprise clients along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), today announced the signing of Apex Assured as a new authorized dealer.
Headquartered in Westerville, Ohio, Apex Assured is a woman-owned technology provider specializing in national coverage with a consultative approach. Research conducted by the Hackett Group shows that working with a women’s business enterprise (WBE) can increase profitability with as much as 130% return on investment, providing distinct competitive advantages. Additionally, the research concluded that procurement organizations who work with a diverse supplier base also had lower overall operating costs and spent 20% less on their buying operations.
“We’re seeing a big shift in the security industry, that’s why we’ve signed with RAD,” said Brandis Thornton, CEO and Founder of Apex Assured. “Clients want lower cost options, which means they’re eager to consider AI and robotics, anything that will help reduce their security problems and not cost them more.”
“We continue to attract and partner with some of the most influential security providers in the country, big and small,” said Mark Folmer, CPP, PSP, FSyI, President of RAD. “The opportunities that these nimble dealers like Apex Assured bring are typically in immediate need of our solutions. Plus, the dealers open their sales pipeline with us, looking at other solutions, and inevitably these spill over into our pipeline.”
Thornton added, “We just spent several days at the GSX show introducing our prospects to RAD’s incredible ROSA. “The RAD team was so helpful in setting things up and customizing it for what we wanted at the show. The response was terrific, I really believe that we’ve got a winner here.”
With the addition of this new authorized dealer, RAD’s dealer network has expanded to 64, covering the US, Canada, and the European Union.
ROSA is a multiple award-winning, compact, self-contained, portable, security and communication solution that can be deployed in about 15 minutes. Like other RAD solutions, it only requires power as it includes all necessary communications hardware. ROSA’s AI-driven security analytics include human, firearm, vehicle detection, license plate recognition, responsive digital signage and audio messaging, and complete integration with RAD’s software suite notification and autonomous response library. Two-way communication is optimized for cellular, including live video from ROSA’s dual high-resolution, full-color, always-on cameras. RAD has published four Case Studies detailing how ROSA has helped eliminate instances of theft, trespassing and loitering at multi-family communities, car rental locations and construction sites across the country.
