Oprema have secured the rights to distribute Milestone Systems open platform IP video management software as part of Milestone’s strategic decision to work with specialist IP security suppliers in the UK. Milestone XProtect software has been keenly welcomed by Oprema’s existing client base, and it is anticipated that this collaboration will further new business interest for the Cardiff based security distributor.
Oprema have been championing IP technology for a number of years, and it is for this reason that Milestone has added them to its exclusive UK distributor list. Oprema will offer not only the full suite of software products but will be hosting Milestone Certified and Milestone Professional training courses as the only authorised independent Milestone Systems training centre in the UK. The training courses will cater for first time users through to experienced users looking to broaden their knowledge. The training will also include configuration, set up and use of supported hardware.
Milestone was Oprema’s desired partner for IP video surveillance software because it is scalable and easy to use. Customers will be able to purchase software licences only or as part of a custom built server solution offered by Oprema.
Oprema’s managing director Matthew Epps said: “We are delighted to be offering such a high-end and well regarded product as Milestone XProtect with our IP solutions. The agreement is a significant one for us, and shows how much of an impact Oprema are making in the market place, in moving the trade towards IP by offering cost effective packages as well as high-end solutions to suit any budget and application. Milestone fits in perfectly with its complete range of software options from XProtect Go right through to XProtect Corporate.”
Glenn Fletcher, country manager UK & Ireland for Milestone, added: “Milestone Systems are happy to have Oprema on board as a new UK distributor. They will be able to help with technical training and server designs, leveraging the Microsoft and IP skills that they already have in house. Oprema are also our gateway into Wales as a distributor, which was another key reason for selecting them to be part of our expanding Milestone UK team of partners. We aim to grow together in the coming years as the Milestone open platform VMS approach continues to be embraced in the UK.”
Since the agreement was signed in January 2013, Oprema have successfully won a number of projects with Milestone VMS pre-loaded on Oprema’s in-house manufactured servers. This is ensuring that the partnership is a winning combination for UK installers by offering a cost-effective solution with the highest level technology available on the market today.
