Alloys to distribute Uniview IP surveillance in Australia

05 Mar 18

Specialist IT distributor Alloys has announced an Australian distribution partnership with video surveillance manufacturer Uniview, in a move it says will strengthen its security offering and widen its portfolio.

The agreement provides Alloys' customers with access to the complete Uniview IP video surveillance product lines in Australia, including IP cameras, codecs, network and digital recorders, analogue products, storage devices and software.

Since launch in 2005, Uniview has become the seventh largest IP video surveillance provider in the world.

The company says it invests more than 15% of annual sales revenue in research and development, with an R&D employee headcount that makes up almost half its total staff.
Uniview Oceania sales director Derek Li says, “Quality, reliability and innovation are the key value proposition of Uniview products.

“With this value proposition, we have already established a successful footprint across 140 countries and are experiencing over 100% annual growth in these countries. Now we are setting our sights on Australia and given the local growth of the IP surveillance security market, we are excited to bring on Alloys as a key distribution partner.”

Alloys is a specialist Melbourne-based distributor with a vendor offering that includes HP, Canon, Netgear, Panasonic, Samsung, Seagate and Sony.

They offer a range of IT products for resellers including printers (including 3D), scanners, audiovisual equipment, storage and networking and security and automation.  

Through the partnership, Alloys says it will provide extensive distribution capabilities which will assist Uniview to optimise and grow their market share in Australia.

Alloys CEO Paul Harman says, “The new UNV partnership complements our market-leading security ecosystem.

“Uniview’s products are of the highest quality, and we are confident the value and features offered by Uniview will win our security integrators, consultants and installers new business and help them achieve greater profit, cash flow and growth.
