Improving a Minnesota City

The Challenge

During our initial review of the city’s needs, we understood that every department in the city had many overlapping requirements for its video surveillance system, but at the same time, desired functionality that was unique to its specific needs. The city needed a platform that had the potential to integrate with other systems the city currently used and many that it was evaluating as potential future options. While the initial acquisition cost of the system was a large consideration, a platform that weighed feature enhancement with ongoing cost was important as well.

Solution

We ultimately determined a system with an open-architecture platform was the best long-term solution. This not only met all of the different departmental needs, but also integrated with the many different software platforms used throughout the city, such as gunshot detection software. The Milestone Corporate software platform was chosen because of its robust capabilities, breadth of integration possibilities, and ability to federate to other Milestone Corporate systems operated by agencies with cooperative interests in mind.
