Frost & Sullivan has bestowed Avigilon with its 2009 North American Company of the Year Award in the high-definition surveillance market.
Frost & Sullivan recognized the Vancouver, British Columbia-based company for its end-to-end network-based surveillance solution that includes high-performance, multi-megapixel CMOS and CCD cameras, high-capacity recorders, and intuitive client software.
Avigilon said it has signed over 300 channel partner contracts covering 139 countries.
“Avigilon’s HD surveillance systems offer a radical improvement in imaging performance, which is critical for the protection of the public, critical assets, and infrastructure,” Frost & Sullivan said in a statement. “On the strength of its HD surveillance solution, the company grew swiftly to achieve over 200 percent increase in revenues each quarter in 2008.”
The company has also skillfully combined marketing and PR activities to elevate its brand.
“Avigilon has worked hard on letting its products and technology market the product by offering trials and pilots prior to investing money on advertising and direct mailing campaigns, which have relatively higher costs and lower return on investment,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Dilip Sarangan.
Frost & Sullivan, based in Mountain View, Calif., presents the award based on the company’s business development, competitive strategy, customer satisfaction, and leadership within a particular Frost & Sullivan Industry Research Group.
