The agreement sees Mayflex, a distributor of converged IP solutions, become one of a small number of distribution partners to gain this prestigious partner status in the UK.
This year is the fifteenth anniversary of Axis inventing and bringing the IP camera to market, and during this time it has witnessed an increase in the role that IT departments play in surveillance installation projects. Mayflex’s business has a very strong IT focus and the partnership with Axis will further strengthen its best of breed product portfolio.
Phil Doyle, regional director Northern Europe, Axis Communications said: “Axis’ business model is based on strong, long term partnerships and we are very pleased to welcome Mayflex UK Ltd as an Axis Distribution Partner. Demand for IP surveillance in the UK is increasing and as the market expands we strive to ensure we have a comprehensive channel to market for our solutions.
“Mayflex brings a range of skills and insight into a number of market sectors where we are eager to work with new integrators, resellers and end users and we are confident that, along with our already established distribution channels, we are aligned to the best-placed partners to take advantage of these trends.”
Andrew Percival, managing director, Mayflex said: “We are delighted to be strengthening our IP Electronic Security offering with the Axis range of products. This announcement underlines our commitment to work with best of breed market leaders.
“There is no doubt that the deployment of IP based security systems creates a huge opportunity for our integrator customer base who can use their experience of Ethernet cabling and switching solutions to assist end users making the transition from analogue to IP. We are very excited at the prospects this developing market offers, and to working closely with the team at Axis to ensure we maximise sales opportunities.”
