Milestone releases Marketplace 2.0

Milestone Marketplace, the hub for helping people find and connect with XProtect® solution service partners as well as software and hardware vendors, has been overhauled and Milestone Systems has now announced the release of version 2.0.

The company describes the new Marketplace 2.0 as ’empowering businesses to explore the unmatched possibilities of video solutions, relevant to companies looking for a new video solution and for existing users of Milestone XProtect looking to enhance the solution’s functionality.’

In addition to verified hardware and software, the new release of Milestone Marketplace also holds solution services with a total of more than 500 options to choose from. The global digital platform includes powerful technologies, like artificial intelligence, augmented reality, video analytics, GIS and GPS along with combined solutions tailormade to meet several business challenges. The partners behind this are all part of the Milestone Community, ready to help businesses use video solutions to solve new challenges.

Brett Hansen, Country Manager South Pacific at Milestone Systems, said of the development: “This is significant for Milestone in our region, as it expands the range of possibilities for video technology among our very active and engaged integrator communities. With the power of XProtect’s open platform, and the innovation that we see out in the broader security and technology industry, there is literally no limit to the ways that video can enhance lives and help communities around the world.”

Peter Moore from Visual Networks in New Zealand adds: “The launch of Marketplace 2.0 demonstrates again the commitment that Milestone has to its developer and integrator communities, and gives us more scope to innovate, develop new tools and share ideas across the whole spectrum of video technologies.”

Milestone Marketplace allows buyers access to a vast catalog of Milestone Systems XProtect-compatible software, hardware and solution services, as well as recommendations and guidance on how to solve specific challenges. Moreover, buyers can filter through a network of trusted Milestone integration partners to find the best fit for their business across the globe. Customer cases, documentation, implementation guides and demos are just some of the elements made available by the partners using Milestone Marketplace to allow customers to explore solutions available to them.

“Since we first introduced Milestone Marketplace in 2019, we’ve been working to extend the experience for both customers and partners when searching for and creating XProtect-compatible solutions. With this version we’ve onboarded integrators as a new partner type, improved the search functionality, and added use categories to name but a few, all with the aim to offer a future-proof platform open to integrating with innovation from around the world,” says Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Kenneth Hune Petersen, Milestone Systems.
