The True Value of Your Best Customers:
Returning customers are the foundation on which profitable businesses are built. They are a feel good pill for what you do right. The age-old lesson on The Importance of Repeat Clients bears reminding. When you have an existing customer who is doing well, a strong working relationship goes a long way in everyone succeeding.

WavestoreUSA is proud of Burlington’s success and we appreciate that the retailer uses our systems to secure each new store location. The relationship between Burlington, certified integrator partner, American Integrated Security Group and WavestoreUSA began in 2012 when some 160 Burlington Store locations upgraded to the WavestoreUSA video storage and management system, controlling 360-degree IP video cameras. Soon thereafter, another combination of 150 existing and new stores upgraded; and since then there is a steady schedule of server orders. Today, Burlington continues to call. Thanks to the outstanding talents of AISG management, installers and support team and the system performance of WavestoreUSA, Burlington is a happy customer.
