Hills Limited and Genetec Inc. Announce New Australian Application Development Centre

Hills Limited and Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions, have announced plans to create the Genetec™ Australian Application Development Centre to support the ongoing growth of both companies’ joint security integration business in the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) market.
Genetec™ Security Centre is a unified IP security platform that blends security systems within a single intuitive interface to simplify the management of access control, video surveillance, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), VoIP communications, intrusion, and analytics. Its open architecture enables organisations to customise their security and operations using the Genetec software developer’s kit (SDK) with support from trusted partners like Hills.
Named by Genetec Inc. as Best Distributor and Best Development Partner in Asia Pacific, Hills’ strong performance means it was the obvious choice to drive Genetec SDK growth in the ANZ region. Hills is one of a few strategic Genetec partners worldwide that has been selected to support systems integration and delivery services.
“Based on the success of our partnership to date, both Hills and Genetec are keen to announce this new initiative which will accelerate growth across ANZ,” said Hills CEO, David Lenz. “Our focus will be on expansion into application solutions for the industry verticals of retail, banking, public safety, government and transport,” said Lenz.
“By collaborating with Genetec to develop a strategic plan that drives sales growth for the next three years, with a strong focus on pre-sales capabilities, we’ll be able to provide a state-of-the-art, purpose-built security solution for the diverse markets we serve,” added Lenz.
“Genetec and Hills share a common vision for delivering unified, innovative security solutions that help ‘Protect the Everyday’,” said Philippe Ouimette, Genetec Country Manager–Australia and New Zealand. “We are excited to open the new Genetec Australian Application Development Centre, which will allow  Australian and New Zealand customers to have custom and optimised applications in their security and operational environments. Together with Hills, we will be very well positioned to cultivate and win new business opportunities in ANZ,” added Ouimette.
“World leading technology from Genetec, supported by Hills expertise and technical support, is a winning combination for customers—we can create unified security solutions that are customised, future proof and ensure best practices,” concluded Lenz.
