Milestone Systems unveils system builder programme
Scheme to deliver hardware with XProtect Software to the Milestone community
Milestone Systems, a maker of networked video management software (VMS), has launched a new global programme for hardware partners in the Milestone community.
The open programme enables hardware manufacturers to ship their servers, clients and storage solutions powered by Milestone XProtect software.
The Milestone Channel Partners and customers will benefit from tested and validated hardware configurations from leading hardware manufacturers.
The vendor said with XProtect Essential+ preloaded on the hardware, the System Builder Programme enables easy deployment of the Milestone VMS with just a few clicks, or rapid upgrade to one of the more advanced editions through a Milestone channel partner.
In addition to the XProtect functionality, Milestone customers also get access to the many software add-on options from Milestone Solution Partners and the wide range of more than 7,000 supported camera models and other hardware devices.
"The System Builder Programme is all about ease of deployment. Customers can now get the XProtect experience on their hardware of choice in a few clicks. Nobody else is doing this," said Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, CTO at Milestone Systems. "Customers will also be able to easily enter the world of intelligent video solutions by tapping into the rich spectrum of add-ons from Milestone Solution Partners."
In addition, the company stated that the hardware partners in the Milestone System Builder Programme who ship products with the Milestone VMS software will be able to design hardware to fit specific surveillance market segments, and will benefit from the opportunity to tap into the IoT and Artificial Intelligence market through the solution power of the Milestone community.
According to the Milestone, resellers and integrators will also benefit from easier deployments on hardware configurations that are tried and tested and will discover additional upsell opportunities from a wider range of customers starting right away with XProtect Essential+.
