Canadian company, Aimetis, wins video surveillance software product of the year.
The Aimetis Symphony Enterprise out-performed many competitors’ solutions to win this award.
Optimum has been the key player in raising the profile of Aimetis in the UK and entered Aimetis in the award as part of its marketing package. Aimetis has also benefitted from very positive feedback from a set of Benchmark tests earlier in the year, where Optimum also played a key role in profiling and raising awareness of Aimetis.
The Aimetis Symphony Enterprise impressed the judges to take the prestigious award. It is an intelligent, video surveillance management software package that offers a single, innovative open IP platform for video management, video analytics, system integration and alarm management.
Aimetis Symphony Enterprise can be installed on standard IT hardware, making it a practical choice for most applications. It supports both analogue and IP cameras and is integrated with hundreds of different camera manufacturers. The system is easy to use, highly scalable and provides extensive data that can be used for site security and management purposes. It is available in the UK through the Security Buying Group, a specialist VMS supplier with expert technical knowledge. SBG offers installers VMS system design, installation and network support as well as exceptional customer service.
Optimum offers clients annual marketing packages, as well as one-off services. The annual contracts include a bespoke marketing package, created to meet budget and marketing goals. Optimum produces and places all the work agreed in the plan and offers regular customer reviews to provide marketing strategy and advice. Optimum has years of security expertise and works with clients to help them decide how and where to position themselves in the UK security market.
Nick Bowden, MD of Optimum commented, “We recognise that Aimetis is a VMS software expert, whose products offer exceptional flexibility and intelligence to the end user. We have worked closely with Aimetis to establish a strong presence in the UK. The company has begun to see very significant rises in sales over the last year and hopefully the Benchmark award will add to this significantly for our client.
We work hard to ensure our clients and their products are visible throughout the year and any new developments are communicated clearly and effectively. We understand the technologies our clients use and are able to highlight the benefits, including costs and functionality, to potential customers. By entering Aimetis in the Benchmark awards, we were able to raise wider awareness in the UK security market of our client and its excellent VMS software.”
