Milestone Systems was founded in 1998 upon a dream to build a software development company that could improve business through managing and distributing digital video data regardless of time or location. Today, that dream is being realized as more and more security installations are moving toward digital technologies.
With headquarters in Brøndby, Denmark, Milestone is leading the pack as the world provider of true open platform IP video management software. Milestone XProtect® software is powerful and advanced, yet easy to use, reliable and proven in more than 100,000 installations worldwide. The open platform allows best-in-class solutions to video enable business: reducing costs, optimizing processes, protecting people and assets and ultimately increasing value in your organization’s products and services.
Milestone Systems is an international company that sells video surveillance management software in many countries around the world. Our platform is used to ensure greater safety and security for people, products and assets, to help manage environmental issues, and to optimize business processes. Our XProtect software is distributed and sold through an authorized partner channel and through the Internet, a traditional and standard business model for software companies. This means we primarily have contact with distributors and resellers and do not directly handle sales to end users.
Milestone Mission, Vision and Values
At successful companies, people know their goals, focused because everyone has a clearly defined purpose and future direction to strive for. In the same way, a set of shared values gets everyone moving to the same beat with beliefs and ethics that people live by on a daily basis. Defining these values makes it clear how to act and what should drive decisions, making sure the organizational culture contributes to strategic objectives. Fulfilling and progressive mission, vision and values statements become the lifeblood of the company and the reason for the way things get done.
Milestone believes its entire network of stakeholders – employees, partners and customers alike – share the same enthusiasm and commitment: everyone does their part to help make the world safer with new technology.
The Mission: Milestone enables its customers to optimize their business processes by delivering an open and independent IP video surveillance software platform.
The Vision: Milestone aims to drive the global convergence of video surveillance and IP-based business systems.
Milestone Values: Reliability, Openness, Innovation, Flexibility and Independence
Reliability is a key parameter for success through dependability as hard-working professionals whom people can count on. Milestone strives to deliver high quality, dependable software, well tested, and proven in years of operation. Solid support is provided to each other, the partners and end customers.
Being open is productive in Milestone thinking and collaboration with others. Communications must be open, honest and often. Technologically, an open platform is also the nucleus of Milestone solutions and the possibilities they provide through the ability to integrate with other devices and systems.
Innovation is essential in the approach to work and in the software solutions. This is motivated by a pioneer spirit, passion, enthusiasm, and ambition. It is inspired by continually increasing knowledge of partners, customers, and new technology.
Flexibility is the key to responsiveness as time progresses and situations change. It means being able to grow and expand with new people, new markets, and new solutions. It means giving partners and customers the ability to choose levels of product offerings, to scale installations for future needs, and to integrate with other systems.
Independence is evident in the Milestone software support for the widest choice in network hardware and devices. For the company’s customers and partners, it means freedom of choice. For Milestone employees, it is freedom in the working environment and the ability to speak out and take initiative.
