November 14, 2006 -- Video surveillance systems provider Vicon Industries Inc. recently announced a national account agreement with Touchcom Inc. (www.touchcominc.com) , a systems integrator for communication networks and security systems in the US, Europe and the Middle East.
The companies say the partnership expands each other's ability to furnish both custom-designed and standardized high-end, digital video surveillance platforms to meet the diverse requirements of the government, institutional, commercial and educational sectors.
According to a press release, Touchcom will integrate Vicon's (www.vicon-cctv.com) complete product line, including the ViconNet enterprise-level digital video management platform, with the Touchcom OneFacility web-based property management system.
The OneFacility system automates many of the daily transactions that occur between tenants and property owners, including submission of work orders, security management and visitor admissions. Within this context, Touchcom will now offer ViconNet-based systems to provide enterprise-level video surveillance capabilities.
Vicon says its ViconNet platform encompasses a unified system design, global management capability and a scalable open architecture, that when coupled with the company's end-to-end product line, forms a comprehensive video surveillance platform for any application. The company notes that the platform is also fully compatible with applications from the major access control and video analytic companies. All such elements were key factors in Touchcom's decision to partner with Vicon, according to the release.
"The marketplace today demands long-term commitment from the manufacturer and integrator to install and support video surveillance and security systems. Touchcom has demonstrated a company-wide commitment to excellence. In addition, their adaptability to changing customer requirements reflects our core company values," comments Bret McGowan, vice president of US sales and marketing at Vicon.
"Vicon's end-to-end product line and the ViconNet platform, coupled with their commitment to customer support and price point, align 100% with Touchcom's go-to market strategy. The integration between OneFacility and ViconNet will redefine the security landscape and continue to push the capabilities of the security industry in general," adds Patrick Barry, vice president of sales at Touchcom.
