HILLS has invested in enhancing customer experience with a 2-fold demonstration system based on an integrated application approach. 

“Moving away from the traditional ‘manage your CCTV and security in one place’ strategy; we are visually demonstrating how we can do this and much more,” said Hills’ David Lenz. “The purpose is to show customers how to prepare for the unfolding data revolution by presenting ways an end-to-end solution can provide not only cost savings via labour mitigation, but also operational efficiency.”

According to Lenz, the Hills team has focused on 2 ways to demonstrate this to customers. 

“Firstly, we have developed a Trade Demonstration Centre,” he said. “Using a series of PODS, Hills allow customers to get hands on experience with product and ask questions in store. Showcasing brands such as Vivotek, PACOM, Panasonic, Axis, Pelco, Cambium and more, the trade centre demonstration area is perfect for Hills customers looking to learn about the latest technology. 

“Additionally, our Enterprise Demonstration Facility displays enterprise level products showcasing Hills’ end-to-end solution and integration capabilities. This includes technologies from video archiving products such as Genetec, through to innovative analytics, tracking and data collection products such as Ipsotek, Briefcam and Cognimatics.” 

According to Lenz, with the addition of Ruckus Wireless, Juniper Networks and Encapto, to round out the line-up; threat escalation, security, surveillance and IT, Wi-Fi analytics and wireless communications have all been brought together for seamless management across the board. ♦
