Milestone Systems announces South Pacific Distribution Partner Award

Video Management Software leaders Milestone Systems have awarded New Zealand-based distributors Channel Ten Security Imports with the company’s 2021 Distribution Partner of the Year for the South Pacific region.


The award recognises Channel Ten’s dedication to not only the Milestone brand, but the broader ICT community. Head-quartered in Auckland, with staff across New Zealand, the value-added distributor supports a carefully-chosen range of premium network video and audio solutions, working across a broad range of projects – many of which are considered to be cutting-edge uses of technology.


“Channel Ten are an exemplary partner. They are highly focused and driven to exceed expectations across all levels of business,” said Anna Schreiber, Distribution and Inside Sales Channel Manager, APAC, for Milestone Systems. “Channel Ten are strategic in everything that they do, which gives their work a distinct level of quality. It is a pleasure to have them as a distribution partner, and we look forward to celebrating with them in person when travel restrictions allow.”


Channel Ten have been selected from Milestone’s seven distribution partners across Australia and New Zealand.


“All of our distribution partners are fantastic and highly valuable to us. Despite the tumultuous year that was 2021, we have enjoyed much success and the relationships with all of our partners is absolutely pivotal to that success,” continued Schreiber.


Channel Ten have continually stood out with their Milestone First strategy, and in particular have embraced the new Husky IVO™ range, already successfully placing it in many projects across New Zealand.


Schreiber concludes: “Channel Ten always use their professional skills and knowledge to push the boundaries of what is possible with technology. They are one of the most technically competent partners that Milestone has anywhere in the world and use that expertise to help customers and end users get the most out of their VMS deployment.”


Brett Hansen, Country Manager South Pacific for Milestone Systems, adds: “As an open platform, Milestone relies on the hard work, dedication and vision of our trusted partners. Between distributors such as Channel Ten who constantly look to add value and improve deployments, resellers always searching for the best solutions for end users then through to developers finding new ways to problem solve with our platform, our ecosystem is critical to our success. Our congratulations to Channel Ten for their well-deserved award.”


Hamish McKenzie, Sales director for Channel Ten, adds: “We would like to thank all our customers and end users of Milestone VMS solutions. While this is often a cliché, without the acceptance of the Milestone solution it wouldn’t be the leading solution in the New Zealand market. We always try to look at a challenge from the end user’s point of view and focus on the surety of the outcome. While this might not suit everybody’s tempo, experience has taught us that you don’t often get more than one chance to get it right. You really need everybody’s input and help. So, when you start the Milestone journey, you really get a piece of everybody in that mix, from the security manger to the integrator and all the way through to the software developers. Miss a piece and it all falls down. Covid has taught us the value of resilience and relationships and again we would like to thank everybody who has joined Milestone on this journey.”
