Chairman’s Note

Why Innovation Matters

The electronic security industry is not immune to disruptive technologies and go-to-market strategies. The evidence is clear — organizations with a culture of innovation are on the path to growth. Those who fail to innovate are on the path to obsolescence. Putting innovation first in business allows an organization to discover a better way of doing things.

As Peter Drucker says, “the purpose of a business enterprise is to create a customer.” By fostering a culture of innovation, an organization can drive greater customer growth and loyalty and employee engagement, rather than endless cost cutting.

Innovation isn’t just about new products or services. Innovation improves business models, processes and functions that help drive new ideas for the organization while keeping you relevant in the eyes of your customers.

At ESX we deliver an industry-focused ecosystem that provides you and your team the ability to uncover innovative ideas and products that help your organization remain competitive in today’s marketplace. I encourage you to experience the ESX community – it does a business good!
