Network Webcams has further strengthened its UK sales team with the appointment of two additional specialists, Richard Lewis and Rob Corlett.
Like a scene from a macabre video game or a war movie flashback we stand on the eerie Black Fortress as the opposing troops advance towards us; tooled up and with more ammunition than they’re ever likely to need it’s 7 against 2: staff against Directors.
As they approach, the fire in their eyes is visible, the fear palpable and the sweat smelly! The staff are on a mission.
As the first bullets rain down spitting paint from every angle, turning the Black Fortress an oily shade of orange, the temptation to open fire is overwhelming. With limited ammunition and defense of the tower our primary objective (along with not getting shot in the b***s), we hold off until our firing lines are clean and fire off a few head shots to fix our aim. With height on our side we have them pinned down.
Ok, so it was nothing of the sort. It was a wild free-for-all culminating in a shoot-the-boss episode not seen since the phrase “going postal” was coined. A Bukowski-esque firefight if ever there could be such a thing.
We did hold them off though, and yes, I’m still smarting. Of course we’ll be doing this again.
Network Webcams has won the Best Growth Award from Axis, the global market leader in network video.
2007 has been a breakthrough year for us and we’d like to thank all of our customers for your continuing support.
You’ll know that this year has seen us launch new Streamdays Webcam Hosting services including a true video streaming system we concisely call StreamdaysTRUESTREAM. We launched a portal website for our Streamdays customers at www.streamdays.com and a dedicated website for our RemoteManager construction webcam service and have gone from strength to strength in our online IP cameras sales for home and business security.
One of our primary motivators for the year was to increase the number of ways we can support and inform our loyal customer base and we launched this blog and our IP camera support forum in order to do this. Both have been successful and we hope we can further improve our technical support and customer service in 2008. Telephone and email will still be the main ways we support you, but these other options mean you can also receive support from other customers and users.
The team here has grown too. We’ve recently welcomed new staff in both sales and technical and judging by our recent Christmas night out they’ve settled in rather well!
We’ve got some good things planned for 2008 and we’re working hard on these in the hope that the early part of 2008 will be another memorable period in the history of Network Webcams Ltd.
As always, we welcome any questions about our company and our services and look forward to providing you with IP cameras for many happy new years to come!
Let no-one ever say Karting is for kids! After two hours of high-adrenaline endurance karting at Daytona Motorsport in Manchester, a team from Network Webcams Limited held off a plucky Axis Communications team to take the checkered flag in record time!
Ok, so it wasn’t record time and Axis did beat our second team, but we did pretty well. A triumph for the little guy, or a major spot of luck, you take your pick.
We’d like to thank Steve, Nick and Simon at Axis Communications for putting up a good fight and for the opportunity to prove that not only do we work hard, we play hard too. And congratulations to all Network Webcams Ltd staff who took part. Hopefully the blisters, bruises, cuts & scratches have disappeared by now.
So, any one else want to take us on?
We’re always on the lookout for interesting uses for IP cameras and webcams and while on holiday in New Zealand last month this one caught my eye.
