Milestone and Hills form distribution partnership

Milestone Systems has signed a distribution deal with Hills Inc. in Australia. The partnership will effectively make Milestone the VMS vendor of choice for all existing tenders currently with Hills’ extensive list of reseller partners in the Australian channel.


“There is a lot of strong history between Milestone Systems and Hills, and we have great respect for the Australian distributor’s position as a true heavyweight in the security and IT industry. Both companies have experienced significant evolution in terms of market offerings and management structure. We are coming together at a time of particular importance and real change in the Australian market,” said Jordan Cullis, APAC Sales and Marketing Director for Milestone Systems.


“Our renewed partnership with Hills stands as testimony to our place in the local channel. The move underscores the importance of the channel to Milestone, and we expect this to be hugely significant for innovation, service and support for the industry in Australia.”


Milestone’s XProtect will offer greater flexibility for reseller partners of Hills, due to its open platform accepting the greatest range of hardware and software integrations. As an open platform, and through the power of Milestone’s open platform community, XProtect allows integrators and developers to innovate and create new solutions tried and tested by thousands of developers in over 500,000 installations worldwide.


“Hills is an iconic Australian brand, and as such we are extremely excited to partner with them. With a large majority of enterprise deployments already coming our way, the opportunity to work with the network of Hills integrators and MSPs will be of great benefit to both parties,” said Anna Schreiber, Channel Manager for Milestone Systems.


Hills General Manager Category Management & Technical Services, James Layton said: “We’re very pleased to be partnering with Milestone, who we see as a true top-tier software vendor with best-in-class products. The synergy between both Milestone’s products and team, and our own team and reseller network, promises exciting times ahead.”


Milestone continues its strong growth trajectory in Australia and the wider South Pacific region; approximately doubling local staff levels over the past two years, employing experienced professionals in new territories, and expanding its business.
