Genetec and Hills hoist new Australian Application Dev Centre

The Genetec Australian Application Development Centre will focus on expansion into application solutions for the retail, banking, public safety, government and transport sectors.

Hills Limited and Genetec have announced plans to create the “Genetec Australian Application Development Centre to support the ongoing growth of both companies’ joint security integration business in the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) market".

Genetec has a broad solutions portfolio that encompasses security, intelligence, and operations, with its flagship product, Security Centre, being 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".

The company says 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.”

Hills Limited was named by Genetec as “Best Distributor and Best Development Partner in Asia Pacific,” with such a strong performance making it “the obvious choice to drive Genetec SDK growth in the ANZ region".

Indeed, Genetec praises Hills as “one of a few strategic Genetec partners worldwide that has been selected to support systems integration and delivery services".

Hills chief executive David Lenz zoomed in and said: “Based on the success of our partnership to date, both Hills and Genetec are keen to announce this new initiative which will accelerate growth across ANZ.“

He added: “Our focus will be on expansion into application solutions for the industry verticals of retail, banking, public safety, government and transport.

“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.”

Philippe Ouimette, Genetec country manager for Australia and NZ, said: “Genetec and Hills share a common vision for delivering unified, innovative security solutions that help ‘Protect the Everyday’.

“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.”

Lenz concluded: “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.”
