Lund, Sweden, 2013/06/03 - Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, evolves its Application Development Partner (ADP) program with local competence, increasing the range of localized end customer solutions. NASDAQ OMX: AXIS
“We see the opportunity to work more closely with ADP Partners of strategic importance in local markets as an important step in maintaining our continued global market leadership. By making an investment in dedicated Axis resources in all regions, we will continue to upgrade the ADP Program, further strengthen our market-leading position and create true win-win partnerships”, said Bodil Sonesson, VP Sales Axis Communication.
Axis is leading through partnership with a network of system integrators, consultants, software developers, network infrastructure vendors and more. The ADP Program is a cornerstone of the partner network and of key importance to Axis. The program helps software vendors fully integrate Axis network video products into end-customer solutions. By providing open programming interfaces, technical documentation and specifications, and dedicated support, application developers can easily integrate with Axis’ broad product portfolio and unique capabilities.
Axis Communications will now strengthen the ADP Program by recruiting more dedicated personnel for closer collaboration with local and regional ADP partners. Exchanging local competence, market knowledge and cultural/legal awareness will result in earlier integration of Axis products and capabilities in video solutions adapted for a specific region or industry segment.
Axis will introduce three levels of partnership to open engagement, grow business, and reward loyalty with clear benefits and requirements. The program offers focused tools, services and training to meet specific customer needs.
