Protect Australia quickly and easily integrated Essence’s back-end technology directly into its CRM system, further streamlining its customer service capabilities. Since the customer experience is paramount in home security and home management products, WeR@HomeTM was designed and developed to give a super simple and intuitive customer experience. The system’s do-it-yourself installation combined with remote maintenance and management tools allow Protect Australia to serve more customers cost effectively. WeR@HomeTM recently won the European Consumers Choice Award for 2014, with ease of use contributing the highest score.

 “We’re excited to have Protect Australia as our strategic partner,” said Michal Aharonov, vice president, head of sales and services for Essence. “Our partners need the most comprehensive, but simplest solutions to appeal to their customers, and we always maintain open communications with them to ensure both their satisfaction and a continuous collaborative relationship where Essence develops and refines our products in accordance with their needs.”
