Milestone Alleges [Now Removed], Qognify Denies VMS "Running Out Of Support"

By John Honovich, Published May 01, 2019, 07:34am EDT

Milestone is running a marketing campaign where they allege that OnSSI and Seetec VMSes are 'running out of support'. However, Qognify's CEO flatly denied this to IPVM.

Inside this note, we examine the allegation, Qognify's denial and the increasingly bitter fight in the maturing VMS market.

Update: after IPVM published this, Milestone retracted the claim.
