Visual Management Systems Limited (VMS), the UK-based CCTV and PSIM specialist, has established a partnership with Trads, the Dubai-based security and business continuity specialist.
VMS, which experienced more than 30% growth in sales in the year to May 2013, is the leader in the UK in providing integrated security management solutions for airports, national security installations, oil industry assets and other highly sensitive infrastructure. Its flagship product, Titan Vision, integrates data from existing and new CCTV installations with data from other security systems such as access control, fire, perimeter intrusion detection and delivers it to a unified control room interface. Applications in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) range from oil platforms to airports to military bases and international borders.
Founded in Singapore in 1995, TRADS has been providing bespoke power and technology services solutions to the Financial Services, Aviation, Information and Communications Technology, and Emergency Public Services sectors. In 2003, TRADS opened a branch office in Dubai, extending its service offerings beyond Southeast Asia to the Middle East and Africa region.
Jay Shields, Managing Director of VMS, said, “We have seen growth and demand in the UAE for our specialist expertise and experience, especially over the last couple of years. We had a very successful GITEX in 2012 and we’re back again this year. Our partnership with Trads gives us a stronger presence in the region, enabling us to respond properly to the demand for intelligent integration of CCTV and security management systems and also to ensure first line support is in place locally for our new customers in the Middle East region.” He added, "We met Trads at an event organised by Scottish Development International at Gitex last year. We recognised quickly that they had the right engineering background and commitment to delivering high quality, bespoke, integrated solutions to their customers. There is a great cultural as well as strategic fit between the two companies.
Trads Managing Director, Arthur Hamilton, said, "Our customers in the Gulf demand solutions that are agile, modular, future proofed and delivered and supported by the best in their field. We work with a range of partners to help our customers to mitigate risks by having the right IT systems in place. In many cases this is about avoiding service interruptions and related loss of production. We had been looking for the right CCTV integration partner and, with their impressive background of delivering CCTV solutions to the most demanding customers in the UK, VMS is the ideal partner for us in this area."
