Camera Partner of the Year - Americas:

Axis Communications wins this award with the creation of the Milestone-exclusive product Axis Optimizer. With this we are realizing the powerful value proposition of the community.

It is a toolset designed to save hours of time managing large and complex installations.

National Partner of the Year - Americas:

Partner of the Year – Latin America:

Prosegur Argentina has proven time and time again to be a top Milestone Partner. We celebrate their passion for innovation and their drive toward finding different ways to grow our business together – if not by VaaS or the integration with Lenel, it’s developing an online guard monitoring service and looking into how our Husky product line could fit in a very restricted market. They are dedicated to completing all available training options so they can remain knowledgeable and competitive. Because of this, they are confident when working independently, and we trust them as an open and accomplished partner.

Partner/Installation of the Year – Canada:

Convergint Calgary - The strategy of designing a tailored solution built on best-of-breed products has been Convergint Calgary's recipe for success. Excellent customer service and reliable designs build strong relationships that’s difficult for their competition to dislodge. They leverage the Milestone Community to successfully introduce Solution Partners to existing customer accounts, creating more value for the end user. Convergint Calgary is consistently one of the top performers in Canada, not only winning 2017 Integrator of the Year in Western Canada but growing by over 90% in 2018 to remain a top competitor.

Technology Partner of the Year – Americas Regions:

Razberi has worked hard with Milestone to provide a small and mid-market hardware offering that is scalable to large distributed systems as well. The technology brought by Razberi offers compute and storage options as well as the ability to have embedded switches throughout the installation, allowing better management of the infrastructure through a centralized management interface.
