COPENHAGEN – December 19, 2012. Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software, was named the Application Development Partner (ADP) of 2012 for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean by Axis Communications, the global leader in IP networked surveillance equipment. This award highlights the work that has been achieved in the partnership between Milestone and Axis in the region.
Axis hosted its first Latin American Axis Channel Convergence Conference (ACCC) November 7-9 at the St. Regis Hotel in Mexico City. This event was attended by many business partners, and the work of those who excel in different areas was recognized, with the award presentation to Milestone in the category of ADP (Application Development Partner) of the year in the region. Milestone Systems was recognized for its work on several projects developed with Axis.
"Milestone was awarded this year's ADP recognition in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean for the dedication shown by its sales and technical team in the region, by having a stable product that is 100 percent compatible with advanced camera systems by Axis and for sharing the same strategies that we have for the Latin American market," said Fernando Esteban, Regional Manager of Axis Communications for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.
Juan Carlos George, Sales Manager for Milestone Systems in Mexico, Central and South America (excluding the Caribbean and Brazil), commented that this recognition rewards good Milestone performance and the implementation of several projects that were developed during the year. He added: “The support Milestone has developed for Axis’ devices is very high level - this gives us the confidence to undertake projects because integrators are assured that the solution will work."
Fernando Esteban stated that the broad portfolio of software offerings that Milestone Systems has for every customer need and the quality of its staff in the region were the main reasons Milestone was selected to receive the award in this category. He also remarked that the sum of all projects both companies have done together has created a successful business partnership.
The collaborations between both companies started more than a decade ago where these global leaders have their headquarters in Denmark and Sweden. The relationship between Milestone Systems and Axis in Mexico dates back to 2005, resulting in numerous implementations in which the combination of both systems has improved security in the country, with one such reference being a project that was carried out in Mexican prisons this year.
