NW Systems Group, has formed a partnership with Taiwan-based NUUO, as the Network Video Recorder (NVR), manufacturer and surveillance video management software provider, continues its global expansion. NW Systems has added NUUO’s range of open platform network video recorders to its portfolio and is offering free help desk support to UK and European customers via networkwebcams.co.uk. NW Systems will also provide NUUO NVR system installation, configuration and commissioning services from next month. Paul Jones, NUUO regional sales manager for the UK & Ireland, explains why NW Systems was selected as its first online sales partner in the UK & Ireland” NW Systems Group’s Networkwebcams.co.uk has a strong presence in Northern Europe. It is very valuable for our NVRs to be seen alongside IP camera brands like Axis, Sony, Panasonic, Mobotix and other camera manufacturers because, as an open platform product provider, we integrate effectively with all these products.” NUUO launched into the UK two years ago. Sales growth here has enabled NUUO to make additional investments to boost its local support and channel management capability. Pictured (L-R) are Frank Crouwel of NW Systems and Paul Jones of NUUO
