Axis Communications recently gathered with its top channel partners at the annual Axis Converge & Connect Conference (ACCC) in Kansas City, Mo., to provide updates on the company’s progress and activities.

“It’s always energizing to get together with our partners, but this year’s ACCC is particularly momentous. Not only are we following a banner year in 2022, but we’re also achieving exceptional outcomes from our investment in operations and supply chain which are helping to accelerate growth,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP Americas, Axis, in a statement. “We’re grateful to our partners and customers for their loyalty, and we’re eager to let them know what’s in store for the future. Our commitment to R&D coupled with our strengthened operations means that we’re full steam ahead when it comes to new innovations. We invite all partners and customers to experience them firsthand at our Axis Experience Centers.”

Earlier this year, the company released the details behind its enhanced operations and strengthened supply chain, contributing to a historic performance for Axis in 2022 (US$1.6 billion in global revenue) and record shipments in the first half of 2023. At the recent conference, Axis shared more specifics, including a return to standard product lead times (an average two-week delivery on 94% of its products), an unsurpassed level of units shipped year-to-date, and an all-time high inventory in distribution. Axis has launched 108 products and solutions so far in 2023, with more to be announced by year end.

The company also said it is earmarking approximately 15% of its annual revenue for R&D and growing its team of engineers to more than 2,000. Axis will expand beyond its existing 16 Axis Experience Centers in the Americas — the latest opened August 2023 in Cincinnati — with new locations and remodeled facilities already in the works. Axis opened an AEC in Vancouver in 2022, and relaunched its Toronto centre the same year.
