COPENHAGEN--Milestone Systems has launched the Milestone User Group, in line with the company's vision to continue as thought leaders in the security industry. The Web site for the new community,, will help build on that vision, acting as the pulse of everything relevant in the open platform IP video surveillance market. The value of the User Group to both the customers and Milestone as a company is the shared input from all sides. This online community will strengthen existing relationships and forge new ones. The information that will be streaming through this portal represents something that will be useful for everyone in the industry, officials said.
Milestone management has a strong presence on the User Group site. Co-founder and chief technical officer John Blem has a blog commenting on advances in the technical side of the security field. Vice president Eric Fullerton blogs about the business side and the effects of the latest convergence trends. Even the chief executive officer Lars Thinggaard comments on today's hottest topics.
The Milestone User Group site is available to the general public, but members who sign up will enjoy extra benefits such as quarterly face-to-face lunch meetings and special access to technical support.
