Looking back on 2016, we had a number of accomplishments and set our course for the New Year with a refocused direction for 2017.

Last year, Pelco by Schneider Electric has continued to work hard to implement a number of changes – both in the way we conduct business and in the growth and improvement of our products and solutions offerings to better serve our customers. These efforts have strengthened our core competencies, and set the foundation for a very successful 2017.

In 2016, Pelco increased its focus on four core vertical markets: airports and seaports, casinos and gaming, Safe City, and oil and gas applications. We have invested in research and development, focused our sales and marketing strategy, and developed strengthened relationships with key partners to better serve these areas. As a company, we reorganized our renowned support capabilities and dedicated a great deal of personnel time and resources to fully understand the needs of end users in these sectors.

As a solutions provider, we’ve honed in on the specific capabilities that these markets want and need most, and worked with our engineers to develop new products with these capabilities in mind. As a result of all these efforts, we will be unveiling a number of new systems solutions and products that we have either developed organically or integrated from one of our many technological partners.

Going forward in 2017, our focus will be on delivering the best possible comprehensive security solutions – from video surveillance cameras to analytics software to video management and storage systems. Integrations with leading software and hardware partners will also further enhance our offerings. We’ve got it all covered.

Another key element of our extensive foundational work in 2016 was an investment in bolstering our emphasis on quality at every level of product development. We established a four-tiered approach to excellent quality, which is described in these blog posts.

Everyone at Pelco is looking to 2017 as a year of substantial global growth. We look forward to working with our customers, integration partners, consultants and industry leaders to deliver the best possible video surveillance and security solutions in the industry. We are moving ahead by your side!
