Panasonic System Solutions Oceania (PSSOC) has partnered with Eagle Eye Networks to become a Distributor of the company’s retail supply chain solutions across Australia.
Eagle Eye Networks, a leader in cloud-based video security surveillance, artificial intelligence and analytics, is working with PSSOC – Panasonic’s business arm in Australia – to expand its reseller network and to bring its Eagle Eye Cloud Video Management System to the Australian market.
Ken Francis, President, Eagle Eye Networks said: “We see a great opportunity to strengthen our rapidly growing retail and logistics supply chain across the Oceania market. As we continue to establish our local presence, partnering with like-minded organisations such as Panasonic to deliver on our growth ambitions can accelerate getting our modern solution into the hands of businesses across the region.”
“Panasonic brings myriad experience and knowledge in retail operations, local stakeholder liaison and innovative customer support. Their expertise is invaluable and will undoubtedly improve our capabilities in developing and deploying solutions, as well as providing ongoing support for customers in the long-term,” said Mr Francis.
Eagle Eye Networks Cloud Video Management System allows customers in the retail and logistics industries to monitor activity and receive real-time alerts to devices such as smartphones. The intuitive technology grants complete control directly to the end user and supports Eagle Eye’s three guiding principles: security, reliability, and flexibility. Ultimately, the solution removes the need for physical infrastructure and optimises business performance with artificial intelligence-powered analytics.
David James, Group Manager – System Solutions at PSSOC, said the partnership demonstrates the growth in appetite for cloud-based solutions among customers. “Businesses of all sizes are all looking for greater visual control and peace of mind in their security solutions. It’s suggested that 85 per cent of security patrol callouts are false alarms, which is becoming a focus area for customers to reduce costs. This partnership with Eagle Eye Networks allows an organisation’s security cameras and infrastructure to be transformed into powerful visual tools that provide insights into daily operations – for example, alerts when someone enters a restricted area, object counting of people and vehicle flow, loitering, when cameras are tampered with, or quick access to video to share with authorities if theft occurs,” Mr James said.
“Other key benefits of our Visual Intelligence as a Service (VIaaS) offer include customised AI analytics, open REST architecture, increased flexibility and autonomy for live visual alert procedures, improved staff safety and access to real-time information for a range of system solutions.”
“The benefits of migrating to cloud-based platforms in today’s security market are endless – from lowering upfront capital expenditure, to reducing the reliance on physical infrastructure and removing the need to continuously repair and maintain hardware. All businesses should be looking to invest in this space.”
“This partnership with Eagle Eye Networks marks Panasonic’s continuing investment in the alarm monitoring market, building on our security portfolio with the Panasonic camera range. While we offer an easy to deploy, plug and play, camera brand and operating system agnostic platform, we are also just as comfortable working with customers’ preferred brands and existing infrastructure. Aligning with Eagle Eye Networks allows Panasonic to deliver ‘Visual Intelligence’, by integrating a CCTV system in the cloud, on-premise, or a hybrid of both, with robust alarm monitoring procedures for an intelligent business solution.”
Panasonic and Eagle Eye Networks will be showcasing the latest developments at the upcoming Security Exhibition and Conference, to demonstrate the benefits to Retail Supply Chain customers. The Conference is being held at the International Convention Centre Sydney from 21-23 July 2021.
Panasonic is also seeking expressions of interest from those interested in becoming a VIaaS powered by Eagle Networks partner. Interest can be registered via [email protected].
