Axis Communications and Open Platform Systems (OPS), an Australian value-added distributor of IT network access equipment, have extended their distribution agreement into the New Zealand market, effective immediately.
The announcement follows a successful partnership between the two companies in the Australian market since 2011.
By the terms of the agreement, OPS will join Axis' existing NZ distributors, and will be distributing the full suite of Axis products in the country.
“Axis Communications’ products are a welcome addition to our growing New Zealand portfolio. The extension of our relationship with Axis Communications reflects the increasing demand for IP network cameras from our partners servicing a range of industries and sectors in New Zealand,” said Kobi Ben-Shabat, MD of OPS.
Wai King Wong, country manager for the Oceania region at Axis Communications, commented, “The CCTV and video surveillance market is headed in a direction where revenue for network video is expected to overtake analogue for the first time ever. This growing demand is reflected in the extension of our distribution agreement with OPS into the New Zealand market.
“OPS enables its partners to tailor solutions to match their customers’ exact needs – providing end-to-end solutions across multiple technologies to suit all applications. OPS also provides support services that are second to none. This commitment to exceptional customer service is one of the main reasons we have hand-picked OPS to distribute Axis products across the region,” Wong concluded.
