COPENHAGEN, DENMARK and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - Prism Skylabs is proud to announce the complete integration of its cloud-based service with Milestone XProtect® open platform IP video management software (VMS). This integration gives customers real-time, mobile access to enhanced views of their security cameras and unlocks a once-hidden world of customer patterns, trends and behaviors for employees in all departments.
"Milestone's open platform closely aligns with Prism Skylabs' philosophy of integration," said Prism Skylabs CEO and Founder Steve Russell. "Our mutual customers can benefit from ease of deployment and seamless connectivity between two systems, without the need for additional hardware."
Prism Skylabs integration automatically connects to the security cameras managed by Milestone XProtect, providing employees even more insights into their business, namely:
- Remote, real-time business visibility
- Customer and product-lift heatmaps
- Dynamic video summaries of customer activity, behavior, and movement
- Unlimited storage of data and imagery
All these insights and visual summaries can be shared as easily as sending an email, further expanding the value of the Milestone system to benefit the full enterprise.
"The integration of Milestone XProtect VMS with the Prism Skylabs cloud solution illustrates how our open platform IP technology can enable businesses to add value in new, flexible ways," stated Reinier Tuinzing, Strategic Alliance Manager, Milestone Systems.
Milestone XProtect is an open platform IP VMS that is known for its reliability and interoperability with other systems. Suitable for any industry and application, users can design a flexible and scalable surveillance system that fits their requirements both today and tomorrow.
Prism Skylabs allows employees in any department to understand what's happening in their stores without having to spend hours watching surveillance video. It provides a way to gain immediate understanding of any moment in any store or business -- whether it's a customer-employee interaction, a lengthy line of customers at checkout, or a potential theft at the point of sale.
"Prism Skylabs helps businesses drive consistent store operations, share best practices and compare store performance," said Russell. "It allows for easy sharing of promotional product displays with product vendors and facilitates compliance validation without costly store-to-store, in-person audits."
