Milestone Systems, a leader in data-driven video technology in and beyond security, recorded revenues of 1.1 billion DKK, an increase of 12 percent compared to the previous year. A focused performance by the Milestone organisation, new product launches and customers looking to install or upgrade their security infrastructure generated revenue growth. In addition, key industries increased leaning on video technology beyond security to do e.g. forensic searches with smart analytics, optimise business processes and improve operational efficiencies.
“2021 was a successful year for Milestone Systems. Our industry leading video management platform is in high demand, and our team delivered a world class effort. This generated substantial revenue growth in spite of continued Covid-restrictions and supply-chain shortages in several markets. Sales were also fueled by the continued expansion of our customer base, strong progress in the hospitality market as well as new industry developments in smart cities. We look forward to continuing to develop our offerings in collaboration with our clients and partners ,” says Thomas Jensen, CEO Milestone Systems.
Milestone Systems expects a continued positive outlook in 2022, but the current global developments may challenge precise predictions.
In 2021, Milestone Systems expanded its executive leadership team with two key new hires in order to amplify marketing and human resources. In addition, the company signed on more than 100 new employees, surpassing 1,000 for the first time. The new employees working across the global organisation will e.g. develop and grow partner sales and contribute to new technology advancements. Approximately 500 employees are located at the company’s headquarters in Brøndby, Denmark.
Thomas Jensen adds: “We believe in People First. Our team, clients and partners are our most valued assets. We have invested in skilled individuals to take us to the next level. We are in a good place, and our platform is raising the bar for video technology solutions. Now is the time to build the foundation for future growth supported by our new colleagues, as we continue to pursue our ambitious growth strategy”.
In addition to the new hires, Milestone has invested in research and development and launched new, strategic initiatives. CFO in Milestone, Lars Larsen, elaborates on the 2021 financial performance in relation to these investments: “To further grow our strong position in the marketplace, we have prioritised ramping up our organisation for new opportunities.
