His background will enable him to immediately contribute to the company.”
At Controlware, Harraway is responsible for expanding the company's value distribution and reseller channel and supporting existing channel partners to fulfill growing customer demand for advanced network video solutions. Central to the solutions Controlware provide is the Cware open management platform that enables users to benefit from solutions that are future-proofed. Cware is open standards based and supports integration with leading vendor codec's and cameras, applications such as access control and intruder alarms, and technologies such as H.264 and intelligent video analytics.
"I am really looking forward to this exciting new challenge. Our Cware solution platform is easy to use, flexible, scalable and cost-efficient. Cware enables us to help our partners and their customers meet the surveillance requirements of today, through integration and migration, and also tomorrow through the ability to future proof their systems. When you add our very experienced pre and post sales technical support team I think Controlware can really help the UK market adopt IP based surveillance solutions,” Harraway said.
