Axis Communications Inc. hosted its second annual Axis Channel Convergence Conference (ACCC) last month in Fort Myers, Florida: a gathering of their top North American distributors, systems integrators, development partners, strategic infrastructure partners and consultants. At the event, Milestone Systems, Inc. was announced the Axis "North American ADP Partner of the Year".
The Applications Developer Partner (ADP) is a program of international alliances that Axis Communications started several years ago that has now grown to include more than 400 companies worldwide. Milestone Systems was one of the first ADP partners, and hundreds of successful customer installations demonstrate the powerful combination of Axis Communications network hardware with the Milestone XProtect open platform IP video management software.
The ADP Program is a unique initiative from Axis Communications that aims to create product and organisational synergies between Axis products and application developers, for the benefit of customers. This industry-leading program offers compatible application software and complete system solutions to meet the market's surveillance needs.
"Our ADP partners are carefully selected companies that meet stringent qualification criteria. From professional video surveillance systems to remote monitoring applications or advanced video analytics, Axis together with our Application Development Partners will provide the solution," says Fredrik Nilsson, General Manager of Axis Communications, Inc. "Milestone Systems has proven time and again that such cooperation brings the best synergy for real benefits at the customer level."
Over 140 of Axis' industry-leading partners in the fast growing network video surveillance market participated at the ACCC event, which included discussions relating to trends toward IP-based technology, the Axis product portfolio and plans, and customer success stories.
"Milestone is passionate about working with our partners to grow business through expanding opportunities with IP video surveillance. This ADP award is a great tribute to the Milestone team and our successful relationship with Axis," states Eric Fullerton, President of Milestone Systems Inc.
"Systems Integrators and consultants in the security industry know that Milestone XProtect IP video software is a powerful platform for managing Axis network cameras and video servers. Our companies' close working relationship over the years has ensured full support of all their hardware."
