IMS Research ranks See Tec as number 2 in EMEA region

Philippsburg, Germany

The recently published IMS Research report on "CCTV and Video Surveillance Equipment 2010" has reaffirmed See Tec's position as one of the leading vendors of IP Video Management Software.
In the ‘Software-only Vendors of Open Platform Network Video Management Software (VMS)’ category, See Tec was ranked number 2 in the EMEA region and is rapidly closing in on the number 1 position. In the rankings for all open platform VMS vendors, including players also offering hardware, See Tec was ranked number 3. The report also clearly foresees a macro-shift in favour of hardware independent open platform based VMS in the period between 2009 and 2014. Furthermore, IMS Research expects proprietary VMS solutions to decline significantly in the same period.

This solid performance is even more remarkable given the gloomy environment that prevailed in the sector during much of last year due to the global economic crisis. Rolf Senger, CEO at See Tec AG, sees these positive developments as a validation of the firm’s recent strategy. “By entering new markets in Europe and by focusing on developing tailor-made solutions for specific verticals, we have distinguished ourselves as the partner of choice for IP surveillance software”, says Senger. After the successful entry into the Scandinavia, Turkey and the Commonwealth of Independent States, See Tec plans to continue with its focused expansion strategy by establishing sales and support staff in all key European markets this year.

Besides geographical expansion, sustained development of solutions targeted at diverse verticals is a top priority. See Tec’s video management solution is positioned as a ‘multi-solution platform’, which allows business processes, related hardware as well as information streams to seamlessly connect with the See Tec’s VMS. This enables See Tec to not only provide the industry leading solutions for verticals such as retail, logistics and finance but also to effectively differentiate from competitors. By promoting the integrated and streamlined use of the VMS with other IT and network based technologies typically deployed by businesses, See Tec has expanded its scope beyond the traditional realm of security to include business intelligence and the IT sector at large.
