Genetec wins 2014 Axis award
Genetec was recently named the 2014 Application Development Partner (ADP) of the Year for North America by Axis Communications. A three time ADP of the Year Award recipient since 2010, Genetec was honored during the ninth annual Axis Channel Convergence Conference (ACCC) held in Miami, Fl. from September 7-11.
Axis Communications presented Genetec with the North American ADP of the Year award, given annually to recognize the success and loyalty of one Application Development Partner. Strategic partners since 2004, Axis and Genetec have grown their collaborative partnership beyond product integration to a fully realized co-development relationship. Together, the two companies innovate and deliver mutually beneficial video surveillance and access control products, training and marketing programs, and business opportunities designed to benefit their respective integrators, channel partners and enterprise-class end-users.
“Genetec continues to be committed to strengthening our collaborative business relationship,” said Rob Muehlbauer, business development programs manager at Axis Communications. “They have worked closely with us to improve the integration of our technologies, including access control, and support our joint strategies to provide the strongest solutions for our integrator partners.”
Genetec is a Global Partner in the Axis ADP Partner Program, which is designed to help ADP partners leverage Axis’ technology and market-leading status to capitalize on the fast-growing network video surveillance and access control industry. As a channel-oriented company, Axis views partners as an extension of its team, playing a key role in the overall success of the company as well as the surveillance market’s transition from analog CCTV to digital video.
“We are honored to have won this distinction for the third time, evidenced in our on-going innovative, entrepreneurial relationship to deliver world class integrations with Axis cameras and, most recently, the unique integration with our SV-32 network security appliance and the Axis A1001 network door controller,” said Morgan Pasnon, Senior Technology Alliance Manager, Genetec. “We’re excited to continue this global partnership to bring to market the most integrated, reliable and intelligent IP security solutions for our mutual customers.”
ACCC is an annual gathering of Axis’ top distributors, systems integrators, software development and strategic infrastructure partners throughout North America. This year’s event drew more than 300 attendees who participated in educational workshops about IP-based surveillance technology, a review of the Axis product portfolio and future roadmap, and sessions that highlighted network video best practices and customer success stories.
