New subscription model for software

Genetec Inc, the provider of IP security products, has announced a new subscription model for its flagship Genetec Security Center.

Security Center Subscription introduces new ownership and payment options to let customers access Security Center on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ basis.

Subscribing customers receive the same local, on-premises version of Security Center and pay for it monthly or annually, as opposed to buying upfront. When purchasing on subscription, customers also get the Canadian company’s online support resources and qualified support professionals by ‘phone or through live chat, plus access to Security Center Cloud services with risk-free trials included in the price. Security Center Subscription is available through the new Genetec self-service portal.

Andrew Elvish, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Genetec, said: “In the past few years, companies like Adobe, IBM, Oracle, Netflix and many other software companies have adopted flexible buying models with impressive success, offered as Technology-as-a-Service (XaaS) via the cloud, or as a traditional on-premises installation with monthly-or-annual renewals. Genetec is leading the way in the physical security industry by offering customers an alternative ownership option for our successful video surveillance platform. Not only will customers enjoy the same fully-featured version of Security Center, but they will do so with lower up-front expenditures, predicable recurring costs, and access to the latest releases and Genetec support resources, at no additional charge.”

Genetec is introducing Security Center Compact, a new entry-level edition of Security Center. Only available through subscription, Security Center Compact will be showcased for the first time at ISC West on booth #26 057. This new edition of Security Center supports up to 25 cameras.
