A Look Back at What Has Happened at Paxton in 2020…

So much has happened at Paxton in 2020. We released a range of new products and software updates, including the Entry Standard monitor and a number of new COVID-secure features for Net2.

We even launched the Paxton Installer app to give our installers access to anything they might need on-site!

Join us as we recap the standout moments of the last 12 months.

We Featured in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for List

In February we were delighted to announce that we had featured in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for list, for the third year running! Inclusion in the list, which is run by Sunday Times in collaboration with Best Companies is based on anonymous feedback from our UK employees. We threw a celebration lunch for everyone and caught up with Adam Stroud, Paxton CEO, about what being included in the list means.

The Entry Standard Monitor Launched

Back in May, we added to our video entry product range with the launch of our next generation standard monitor – the Entry Standard monitor.

The new monitor comes with a 4.3” capacitive touch screen, and the same user interface as the Entry Premium monitor. The sleek, timeless design enables the Entry Standard monitor to fit discreetly into any surroundings.

Developed in response to customer feedback, the new standard monitor offers a feature-rich and cost-effective solution for a range of applications – from schools and hospitals to offices and residential buildings.

Brand New Paxton Installer App

On 20th October we launched the Paxton Installer App. The tool has been designed as a centralised platform, to give installers instant access to the information they need to install and manage Paxton products and solutions on the go.

The free app provides digital access to Paxton’s Knowledge Base, which includes the answers to many FAQs and technical troubleshooting solutions.

Award-Winning Solutions for Your Customers

We always want to ensure installers recommending the very best when specifying Paxton products. We were therefore very pleased that Paxton10 won both the Benchmark Innovation Award and PSI Premier Award for Access Control Solution of the Year.

The PSI Premier Awards are voted for by installers and it gave us great pride to receive the Access Control Product of the Year title for the ninth year running!

Virtual Training Took Centre Stage

2020 was unprecedented and many of us had to make significant changes to the ways in which we work.

During this time wanted to continue supporting our installers to develop their business offering and protect their future projects.

For those who were spending more time at home (or behind a desk), we were able to offer a range of online and virtual training sessions. Training options included self-paced online courses and live instructor led sessions with a Paxton trainer.
Our approach is to remain supportive and productive, by providing customers with the latest product training, technical advice and support for upcoming projects.

We want to say a HUGE thank you to all our installers, distributors, partners, customers, and the Paxton team for your support over the last year. We have some exciting things coming up in 2021 that we can’t wait to share with you!
