AMX has been awarded the 2013 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Growth Leadership. The analyst made the award in recognition of AMX’s consistent double-digit growth rates over the past three years, and its achievement of the highest annual growth rate in the European building automation systems market in 2012.
The company developed 90 new products in 2011 that were launched the following year; these products brought in nearly half of AMX’s revenue in 2012.
AMX’s software architecture is scalable, and manages multiple devices within buildings and campuses across the globe. Its hardware products cater to networking, interfacing, communication, digital signage, and media distribution. The Rapid Project Maker (RPM) helps design, configure, and deploy systems within an hour, while the Resource Management Suite (RMS) communicates to up to 33,000 devices in building automation and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
“The technology backing these products is unique, yet simple, and is easy to deploy as well as interface,” said Frost & Sullivan research analyst Balaji Anand Sagar. “Certain parts of the RMS are specialised for particular markets. This strategic end-user segmentation and placement gives the company a technical edge over its competitors.”
“AMX continuously builds and updates its hardware and software products, taking into account even the tiniest details, whether it is for automating a single room or a whole building,” added Sagar. “AMX systematically trains its technology partners and works in close collaboration with system integrators to assure 100% quality control in the sales channels.”
All of AMX’s European sales have come through its channel partners. Worldwide, the company has partnerships with 1,700 system integrators. It also offers training courses through its AMX University.
“To once again receive recognition from a company of Frost & Sullivan’s stature is an honour,” said Kevin Morrison (pictured), managing director and vice president, AMX Europe. “To be commended for growth is notable at any time, but to receive such commendation in the face of the recent economic climate is a tremendous achievement and one of which I am extremely proud. It is testament to the scope of our product innovation, the strength of our customer service offering and the commitment of our team, and we are truly thrilled to accept this award.”
