CertAlarm launches online quoting platform

The new Online Quoting Platform from CertAlarm has been designed to simplify the selection of test labs and certifiers in the fire protection and security systems industry.

CertAlarm-OnlineQuoting-20CertAlarm, an organisation offering a pan-European quality mark in the fire protection and security systems industry, has announced the launch of its new Online Quoting Platform.

With a variety of national marks in Europe, manufac­turers are forced to prove compli­ance by having their product re-tested and re-certified by local test and certifi­cation bodies – a highly expensive and time-consuming process that needs to be repeated in each country. With CertAlarm, fire and security products need to be tested and certified only once, explains the organisation.

Manufacturers who wish to get their security or fire product or system tested and certified to gain access to European markets can now “easily obtain multiple quotes” by filling out CertAlarm’s project information sheet via the new Online Quoting Platform just once. As a result, they will obtain quotations from all or selected CertAlarm partners, all of which are experienced and accredited Certification Bodies and Test Laboratories.

As a logged in user, the manufacturer and his CertAlarm contacts are the only persons who have access to the confidential information relating to the project. The platform is secured by an SSL-encrypted transfer, a service provided by 1&1 IONOS SE, which ensures the “highest possible protection of the sensitive data”. Once all offers have been provided, the manufacturer can easily compare them, consult with CertAlarm’s partners for further clarifications and finally make their choice.

Users of the new platform will also receive a one-time bonus valid until 31st March 2021 (date on which the order is placed). “We grant every new manufacturer who asks for a quote via our new Online Quoting Platform a free listing for four years for their first CertAlarm certified product”, says Anja Kinsky, General Manager of CertAlarm. “Already registered manufacturers get the same bonus for their first certificate they received based on the usage of our new platform, provided they do not possess any transfer certificates.”
