Milestone Systems marks increased UK investment with opening of new UK headquarters and demo suite in Reading

Partners and customers to benefit from additional support and training

COPENHAGEN – April 29, 2015.  Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), hosted more than 100 of its UK partners, customers and key media representatives at its new UK & Ireland headquarters in Green Park, Reading on April 28.

“It is great to celebrate this important stage in Milestone’s development in the UK by moving into brand new offices at Green Park in Reading on the M4 ‘Silicon Corridor’. It marks the beginning of a significantly increased investment in supporting our partners in the UK and Ireland doing more business with us,” says Chris Whitting, General Manager, UK & Ireland, Milestone Systems. “Partners are welcome to use our state-of-art demo facilities to help train their people in our technologies and demonstrate solutions to prospective customers.”

Milestone VP EMEA Thomas Lausten and Chris Whitting talked about the VMS market leader’s strategy for accelerating growth in the region. Milestone is increasing its support for key distribution partners, and creating initiatives to accelerate more growth for the partner ecosystem in this region.

Milestone also reported strong interest for its Milestone Husky Series of pre-configured NVRs launched just a year ago. The Milestone Husky M10 is proving ideal for entry-level surveillance, whilst the Milestone Husky M30 is designed for meeting more comprehensive surveillance needs. The Milestone Husky M50 is proving well suited for firms looking for a more powerful all-in-one solution with access to more channels and storage.


In other news, Milestone announced that its UK team has recruited Peter Greener, Channel Business Manager for the North of the UK. Peter was previously Business Development Manager – IP CCTV at Norbain. Milestone plans to recruit two additional members of staff in the coming months.
