LOUISVILLE, Colo., June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Envysion®, Inc., (www.envysion.com) the leading Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS) provider, today announced the release of the next generation of the Envysion application designed to further increase productivity and profit impact of video for customers. Leveraging its Software as a Service (SaaS) model, Envysion has immediately deployed the significantly enhanced application, including an even more intuitive interface and several new features. The new application is already available for and in use by all customers.
Since the application resides in the cloud, every Envysion user has instant access to all new features and functionality as soon as they are deployed, eliminating the IT burden of software and equipment upgrades prevalent in traditional video surveillance products. Users simply log into the SaaS-based application to access the most up to date version of the Envysion application. This continuous and effortless upgrade path is one example of how MVaaS is capable of rapidly scaling to thousands of users and locations, overcoming the challenges of managing an enterprise-wide video system.
"Envysion's customers uniquely benefit from our continuous innovation cycle. With more active users across a customer's organization than any other video provider, we are able to elicit diverse customer feedback and rapidly enhance the service to meet their needs. In many cases this entire cycle can occur in as little as a few weeks," explains Matt Steinfort, president and CEO of Envysion. "By focusing on a broad user base and profit impacting video-based business intelligence – whether the end user comes from loss prevention, operations, marketing or somewhere else in the organization – we're able to develop and deploy impactful solutions at a pace that can't be matched by traditional video providers."
"A lot of products in the marketplace today are marketed under the guise of being SaaS when they are really not. Without the benefit of a SaaS architecture, customers are still forced to buy model year products that quickly become outdated and deal with version control and upgrade management across hundreds or thousands of systems. Envysion's MVaaS application, on the other hand, resides entirely in the cloud where we continuously enhance it to meet customer demand," adds Robert Hagens, CTO of Envysion. "Our goal for the next generation application was to deliver an even easier to use solution so that new users could immediately drive operations and profitability improvements, and we believe we have done just that. We've improved overall usability to provide even more intuitive navigation, minimize mouse clicks and further increase productivity."
Envysion enables businesses to increase profitability 10-15% by putting easy-to-use, video-based business intelligence into the hands of the entire organization. Envysion's Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS) solutions transform traditional video surveillance and enterprise business intelligence from niche applications used by a handful of users to a strategic management tool that provides instant and unfiltered business insights to users across operations, loss prevention, marketing and human resources.
