Milestone Systems acquires training specialist Connex Int'l

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP Video Management Software (VMS), is purchasing all outstanding shares of the surveillance training, certification and consulting company Connex International, based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Milestone is already a majority stakeholder in Connex from an initial investment in July 2010.

For years the Connex teams have set up, managed and performed Milestone channel partner training in many languages with proven success across all regions. In recent years, Connex added rigorous certification testing and documentation of Milestone Solution Partner integrations with the XProtect open platform, such as access control, analytics, geo-spatial positioning, video synopsis, 360° camera view de-warping, network video storage and more.

Milestone is investing in supporting the need for continued education in the physical security sector from analog to IP technology. Training the partner channel in open platform IP video skills creates value, by increasing technical expertise differentiates system integrators in the market and most importantly, ensures that they deliver the best solutions to customers.

The key to Milestone strategy for continued growth are the competent distributors and resellers in the international ecosystem. To further accelerate, globalize and align our efforts to strengthen the training of this ecosystem, Milestone has decided to acquire and include Connex in the core of business operations, said Lars Thinggaard, President and CEO, Milestone Systems. Furthermore, Milestone will continue to invest significant resources in the Milestone Knowledge Program and the teams driving the global training concepts to market. The full inclusion of Connex into Milestone is a testimony to this strategy. Their services support Milestone partners in delivering the most competitive, well-designed and high quality solutions in the industry.
