LenelS2 and Milestone Systems expand strategic partnership
LenelS2, a leading provider in advanced security systems, and Milestone Systems, an international open platform developer of networked video management software (VMS), today announced a 10-year agreement for LenelS2 to distribute Milestone products globally. The companies had a previous agreement for North America.
LenelS2 is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies. Founded in 1998, Milestone is a stand-alone company in the Canon Group.
The joint offering of LenelS2 OnGuard® access control and Milestone XProtect® video management software through the LenelS2 channel lowers the total cost of ownership for end users and integrators by offering reduced licensing fees and efficient pre- and post-sales support. This integration, which has been successful through the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP) and Milestone Certified Solution, provides customers with tight, efficient interoperability between the OnGuard and Milestone XProtect systems.
Benjamin Low, VP for Milestone Systems APAC said, “Our sales team are very pleased with this announcement. UTC will bring us to new markets in APAC where the LenelS2 product is well established, and we are confident that the combined Milestone/LenelS2 offering will give our mutual customers a proven solution that works well together.” “We are excited that Milestone XProtect® video management software is now readily available to our customers through our channels. XProtect® is well integrated with our LenelS2 access control solution and the combination of the World’s best Access Control system and the leading VMS in the world will be unbeatable,” said Shiyi Zhou, VP APAC for UTC Fire and Security Products.
