HILLS AND GENETEC LAUNCH AUSTRALIAN APPLICATION CENTRE
Genetec, a leading provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions, has announced plans to partner with Hills to create the Genetec Australian Application Development Centre to support the ongoing growth of both companies’ joint security integration business in the ANZ market.
Genetec Security Centre is a unified IP security platform that blends security systems within a single intuitive interface to simplify the management of access control, video surveillance, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), VoIP communications, intrusion, and analytics. Its open architecture enables organisations to customise their security and operations using the Genetec software developer’s kit (SDK) with support from trusted partners like Hills.
Named by Genetec as Best Distributor and Best Development Partner in Asia Pacific, Hills’ performance means it was the obvious choice to drive Genetec SDK growth in the ANZ region. Hills is one of a few strategic Genetec partners worldwide that has been selected to support systems integration and delivery services.
“Our focus will be on expansion into application solutions for the industry verticals of retail, banking, public safety, government and transport,” said Hills CEO, David Lenz. “By collaborating with Genetec to develop a strategic plan that drives sales growth for the next three years, with a strong focus on pre-sales capabilities, we’ll be able to provide a state-of-the-art, purpose-built security solution for the diverse markets we serve,” added Lenz.
“Genetec and Hills share a common vision for delivering unified, innovative security solutions that help ‘protect the everyday,’” said Philippe Ouimette, Genetec Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand. “We are excited to open the new Genetec Australian Application Development Centre, which will allow Australian and New Zealand customers to have custom and optimised applications in their security and operational environments. Together with Hills, we will be very well positioned to cultivate and win new business opportunities in ANZ,” added Ouimette.
“World leading technology from Genetec, supported by Hills expertise and technical support, is a winning combination for customers — we can create unified security solutions that are customised, future proof and ensure best practices,” concluded Lenz.
