ISS (Intelligent Security Systems), a provider of video intelligence and data awareness solutions, announced that it has named JDS Marketing as its new manufacturer’s representative for Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.


Founded in 2003, JDS is a full-scale independent rep firm led by Jim Switzer, who has represented prominent security technology providers across the Midwest for more than 20 years.

“Our goal is to shed light on exceptional products that have not yet gained the recognition they deserve in this region. By leveraging our network and expertise in positioning products that compliment or advance existing solutions, we are confident in our ability to generate awareness, ignite interest and unlock growth opportunities for systems integrators open to advanced alternatives to the traditional brand name mindset of security technology,” said Switzer.

“We are excited to partner with ISS – a robust, proven, global leader in analytics technology that has not received the attention it deserves in our regional markets. The capabilities provided by ISS solve problems for local security leaders that many currently deployed solutions fail to resolve effectively.”


“The early years of my security and CCTV career were spent with a manufacturer’s representative riding around the back-roads of the southeast, meeting with customers, end users and integrators. This taught me the value of manufacturer representatives in developing a growth strategy and at ISS, we are still believers in having manufacturer representatives as an integral part of our team,” said Matt Powell, ISS Managing Director for North America.

“Jim’s addition to our team is an important step as we grow across North America and I look forward to our success as a team.”
