Strategic partners since 2004, Axis and Genetec have grown their collaborative partnership beyond product integration to a fully realized co-development relationship. Together, the two companies innovate and deliver mutually beneficial video surveillance and access control products, training and marketing programs, and business opportunities designed to benefit their respective integrators, channel partners and enterprise-class end-users.

"Genetec continues to be committed to strengthening our collaborative business relationship," said Rob Muehlbauer, business development programs manager at Axis Communications.
