Panasonic Cameramanager named National Champion in the European Business Awards 2014/15

Amsterdam, September 4, 2014

Panasonic Cameramanager has today been named as a National Champion in The European Business Awards sponsored by RSM International; a prestigious competition supported by businesses leaders, academics, media and political representatives from across Europe. 

The European Business Awards now in its 8th year engaged with over 24,000 business from 33 European countries this year and 709 companies from across Europe have been named today as National Champions; going through to the second phase of the competition.

When founded in 2004, Cameramanager revolutionized the European video surveillance industry by being the first to introduce Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) on a large scale onto the market. The acquisition of Cameramanager in 2013 meant the birth of Panasonic Cloud Management Service Europe: a new company set up by Panasonic as an incubator for cutting-edge cloud services and solutions.

Tijmen Vos, COO of Panasonic Cameramanager: “We’re very proud to be named a National Champion for the Netherlands in the European Business Awards. Since the acquisition of Cameramanager by Panasonic, we’ve work hard on growing and expanding our company and services. To all Panasonic Cameramanager employees the nomination is a confirmation of this hard work. We are now looking forward to the next round of the judging process where we can explain in more depth how we are achieving business success.”

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “Congratulations to Panasonic Cameramanager, it is a great achievement to be named National Champion and we wish them luck in the next stage. The European Business Awards is going from strength to strength, inspiring businesses to greater success and helping to improve the competitive edge of companies across Europe.”

A panel of judges made up of Europe-wide business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs will view the National Champions’ videos, and award the best of this group the coveted ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status. Ruban d’Honneur recipients will then go on to the grand final in 2015. All of the National Champions will also take part in a public vote to decide ‘Public Champions’ for each country. Last year over 93,000 votes were cast, and over 400,000 people visited the EBA website during the competition.

Supported since their inception by lead sponsor and promoter RSM International, the seventh largest audit, tax and advisory network worldwide with a major presence across Europe , the European Business Awards was set up to recognise and reward excellence, best practice and innovation across the European business community.
