COPENHAGEN, Denmark, 1 August 2003

DESIGNA and Milestone Systems announced today that they have entered into an Original Equiment Manufacturer (OEM) partner agreement. This agreement allows DESIGNA to supply and re-brand the leading technology from Milestone-developed network video surveillance software as an integrated part of its parking management product range.

The new DESIGNA Video Solution product, called DEVIS, interfaces with DESIGNA’s PARKMASTER 100 parking management product range, allowing events in the parking equipment to be captured and easily handled in the surveillance software. DEVIS is based on the state-of-the-art networking protocol TCP/IP and offers advanced features such as web access, message forwarding via SMS, or message and picture forwarding via Email.

"This is a great opportunity for Milestone to ensure continued growth in revenues and to increase our market reach through DESIGNA’s unique vertical focus," reports Jens Nielsen, Executive VP Sales & Marketing at Milestone. "Their expertise in parking management makes a perfect marriage with our advanced digital surveillance software to offer their customers the best security solutions."

This latest partnership is in line with DESIGNA’s strategy for providing Integrated Solutions that exceed their customers expectations.

"It will further enable our customers to implement a cost effective video surveillance system in their facilities, thereby providing both themselves and their customers with a higher level of security," commented Tony Whelan, DESIGNA’s Worldwide Sales & Marketing Director.
