Selling through our partners
We never sell directly to customers. Instead, we work closely with long-term partners around the world that deliver solutions and support customers wherever they are. Our distributors ensure there is enough stock in the market to support the channel partner resellers, system integrators and installers, who recommend, sell and implement our products and solutions. We also work with consultants and technology vendors.
Trusted partner network
Partnership is at our core. Through this collaboration we solve customer challenges and seize opportunities previously out of reach. We know that we are stronger together and by joining efforts, we innovate within this unique system of competencies.
For over 30 years we have been driving the shift from analog to digital video surveillance. Today our ground-breaking products and industry firsts that anticipate and meet people’s needs are sold all over the world.
1984: It all starts here
Mikael Karlsson, Martin Gren and Keith Bloodworth founded Axis with the aim of changing the way people think about and use digital devices. That marked the beginning of our commitment to create a smarter, safer world.
In 1996 we launched the world’s first network camera. The idea came from our background in network technology. Since then, people with an internet connection can watch what is going on from anywhere in the world.
We share ideas and work together with suppliers, partners and customers to find solutions that make a meaningful difference to people’s lives.
Sustainability is in our nature
Sustainability is a natural part of our operations. It’s the basis of everything we do, and what drives us to develop innovative, long-term and reliable products and solutions for a smarter, safer world. In 2007, we signed the UN Global Compact, fully supporting its ten principles on human right, anti-corruption, the environment and labor.
Underpinning our product offerings and how we operate as an organization is cybersecurity. We understand its importance and work according to well-defined processes to decrease the risk of compromise. We provide knowledge, technologies, tools and services to support our customers' cybersecurity requirements.
We work to provide the best quality in our products and solutions, business relationships, training, technical support and customer services – equipping our partners and customers with the tools needed to succeed.
At Axis we all contribute to a smarter, safer world. That’s why it’s so important for us to consistently apply ethical business practices, look for sustainable solutions, and make choices that embody our values. We share ideas and work together to find solutions that make a meaningful difference to people’s lives.
