Milestone Appoints Hikvision as Elite Partner

Hikvision is acknowledged for meeting the highest technical standards and business focus in long-standing Milestone partnership.


COPENHAGEN – January 7, 2016. Milestone Systems, the open platform company in networked video management software (VMS), has elevated Hikvision to the status of Elite Partner in the Milestone Camera Partner Program (CaPP).

To be named a Milestone Elite partner, companies must demonstrate outstanding sales, implementation, consulting and support for Milestone Systems solutions and consistently show excellence in business initiatives and marketing. Both companies have dedicated targeted efforts to elevate the mutual technical and commercial engagement to a new level, resulting in the Elite Partner status for Hikvision. 

“To achieve Milestone Elite level status a camera partner must demonstrate commitment in achieving maximum return on investment for our joint customers through superior product knowledge and a focus on long-term customer satisfaction,” says Henrik Sydbo Hansen, Head of the Camera Partner Program at Milestone Systems. “From this increased partnership our channel partners and customers will receive an exclusive level of engagement and commitment with the advantage of cost-effective camera technology fully supported by Milestone software.”

The ongoing relationship between Hikvision and Milestone Systems has been evolving over the past several years, and the announcement of Elite status demonstrates the solidity of an already close partnership.

“Milestone and Hikvision are constantly showing a strong and proven ability to drive value and performance in our integrated solutions,” says Jiang Zhi, General Manager of Hikvision Europe. “Cooperation with partners is a top priority for us, and we are excited to be recognized by Milestone with Elite Partner status.”

Milestone is dedicated to shorter product development cycles to facilitate the Milestone partner community’s ability to respond to ever-changing market demands. The bi-monthly device pack releases containing software updates for supporting new hardware are always in high focus at Milestone. The latest Version 8.3 released December 17, 2015, contains support for numerous brands and models of devices, now totaling nearly 4,900. Work is already underway to increase the number of supported Hikvision devices by more than 100 for the next release of the device pack.
