Video Storage Solutions (VSS) marked the official opening of its new Middle East office with an open day attended by over 100 guests.
“This is a truly exciting time for VSS,” said Rohit Khubchandani, VSS’ Regional Sales Director for METAI (Middle East, Turkey, Africa & India). “The opening of our office in Dubai Internet City underscores our commitment to a region which we regard as a key market for our recording and storage appliances. Located in the heart of Dubai, the office will serve as a regional hub, enabling us to serve our customers and business partners more efficiently.
“We are very grateful to the consultants, resellers, distributors and technology partners who took the time to come to our open day and help us celebrate this important stage in our company’s development,” he added.
VSS, a division of the BCD International, specialises in offering video recording and storage appliances pre-engineered with Milestone XProtect video management software through its channel partners. The appliances are built on the latest generation of Intel Xeon Scalable processors and utilise Seagate Skyhawk AI surveillance-grade drives. They also feature innovative and market-disrupting technology such as its Storage Accelerator, which significantly increases storage scalability, performance and reliability.
Relocation of Wesley Varughese
Coinciding with the opening of the new office, Wesley Varughese has relocated to Dubai in his capacity as VSS’ Business Development Manager for the METAI region.
Wesley previously had been based at BCD International’s US headquarters in Chicago, Ill., since 2016, during which he has acquired experience in several different roles. Most recently he has been focusing on supporting customers across the EMEA region to bolster channel business development and enablement.
“We are delighted that Wesley has made the decision to move from the US to join our Middle East team,” said Khubchandani. “He has made the transition to more greatly assist BCD International and its divisions, increase market share and penetration in the region. This reflects the fact that the company’s global expansion focus has been largely directed toward the METAI markets.
“Although primarily focusing on helping VSS achieve success, Wesley’s expertise also will be available to any BCD International ecosystem partners in order to help support their sales and business development efforts,” Khubchandani added. “His extensive knowledge of the market-disrupting technologies built into our appliance portfolio certainly will be put to very good use as the company looks to raise the level of support it provides to the video surveillance community across the region.”
VSS’ recent participation in Intersec 2020 saw its stand packed throughout all three days of the show with visitors who were eager to learn more about the powerful video recording appliances which are pre-engineered for guaranteed performance.
Commenting on his appointment, Wesley Varughese said: “Our support for Intersec 2020, the opening of our office in Dubai Internet City and my relocation, all underscore a determination to succeed in the METAI region. We fully appreciate the need to be in local contact with our customers, so that we can better understand their requirements and provide the best possible pre and post sales support.”
