About Sage Designs, Inc.
Sage Designs, Inc. is the leading independent supplier of SCADA products in California and Nevada. Serving the area since 1991, Sage Designs has established its position in the market by its consistent high level of customer support and technical expertise.
We specialize in supplying open-architecture telemetry and SCADA hardware and software for both the industrial and municipal markets. We offer a wide array of SCADA software and SCADA hardware, from top-to-bottom integrated SCADA solutions to end-to-end telemetry, all designed to meet your SCADA and automation requirements.
In 2004, Sage Designs began to offer Security products in order to meet the changing needs of our SCADA customers in their challenge to protect our water infrastructure in the wake of 9-11. Our primary focus is to provide technically advanced solutions for measurement, monitoring and control applications.
As a distributor/rep firm focused on providing SCADA, Security & Industrial Automation products, training programs and referrals, we also regularly provide free seminars around the area to educate utility professionals seeking solutions for their SCADA, Security and IA needs.
According to Dena Cornett, CEO of Sage Designs, "In educating our customers about technically-advanced solutions for measurement, monitoring and control applications, we strive to help our customers make informed decisions about their SCADA and Security automation products, and to consider using our product lines when they plan future projects."
Although Sage Designs, Inc. is not a consulting firm, the company seeks to educate its customer base by providing referrals to qualified third-parties, and by offering intelligent, open-systems, solutions to meet many of these needs.
