Genetec Favorability Report 2019

By: IPVM Team, Published on Jan 25, 2019

Genetec's favorability moderately strengthed, in new IPVM integrator statistics over their results from 2017, with 2019 results showing solid, but not exceptional, net positive favorability:

In the past 2 years, Genetec has inserted itself into the industry's most controversial debate, taking a vocal stand against 'Untrustworthy' 'Foreign Government-Owned Vendors', most notably expelling Hikvision and Huawei. How would this impact integrator's view of the company?

Inside this report, we share 100+ integrator comments across 200+ integrator responses, examining 7 main themes.
