I am sure that my global expertise will help me take Milestones' businesses to newer highs.  Also, with the most recent Marketplace 2.0 release, Milestone now has unmatched possibilities of video solutions for organizations looking for new video solutions and for the existing users of Milestone XProtect who are looking to enhance the present functionality. This opens up great opportunities for us to work. With even more partners, we can take our solutions to major business accounts in India," he concluded.
