Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has elevated Bosch Security Systems to the status of Elite Partner in the Milestone Alliance Partner program (MAP). This is a significant tightening of an already close and long-standing relationship, since Bosch Security Systems is one of few partners in the world to achieve this status.
Christian Bohn, Milestone Systems vp Corporate Marketing & Alliances, said: "Our Elite program is the highest partnership level we offer in the MAP program. It represents a partner’s total commitment to achieving maximum return on investment for its customers through superior camera technology and a focus on long-term customer satisfaction with camera solutions integrated to Milestone products. Milestone Channel Partners and customers now gain the advantage of the deepest relationship between Bosch Security Systems and Milestone.
The relationship between Bosch Security Systems and Milestone Systems has been ongoing for several years. Both companies have put in a dedicated and targeted effort to elevate the mutual technical and commercial engagement to a new level, resulting in the Elite MAP partner status for Bosch Security Systems.
Going forward, Milestone Systems will provide even deeper integration for Bosch Security Systems’ cameras with support from the award-winning XProtect® family of open platform VMS.
The synergies between Milestone’s open platform software and Bosch Security Systems’ cameras enable partners and customers to explore the intelligence and efficiency of Bosch Security Systems’ camera solutions and Milestone XProtect market-leading VMS. This gives Milestone and Bosch Security Systems a further boost in shaping and driving the industry on a tactical level by better supporting the channel partners, who create innovative, easy-to-use and business-enabling video solutions to customers worldwide.
Rudolf Spielberger, head of the Bosch Integration Partner Program, said: "Our video technology focus is to deliver superior intelligence and analytics, highest quality of video images, most efficient data rates, with lowest storage requirements. And now, through this strengthened partnership with Milestone, we will bring even more unique and relevant cutting-edge features to customers - offering them new integration possibilities."
