"On the basis of 14 hours of motion on 128 cameras, to store one year on site at 1080P with my compression software, we need a total of 20TB—that is it—which is how we can keep the price down and be so scalable," he explained. "We can do up to four years both on site and in the cloud. For example, we are archiving data for 101 cameras at 1080P for four years, and the dealer cost on that was $35,000, whereas our competition was about $350,000. So, it is becoming a no-brainer, and we have seen incredible growth in 2017 because we are able to bring this solution at this cost to integrators. In the last quarter, we have at least tripled, if not quadrupled in revenue because of the pricing structure we can now offer with this solu- tion." Allan Liers with Metro Sales Group, a national sales represen- tative for ProActive, pointed out that the idea is to make storage solutions affordable for end users while offering the ability to cre- ate an RMR (recurring monthly revenue) opportunity for dealers and integrators that is not going to hinder their sales cycle. "Dealers are really excited that this is an RMR business model created by a dealer for dealers," Liers noted. "They understand that it is getting harder and harder to make a profit and good margins from a hardware sale today, and this is a solution that is not only solving a problem, but is also creating a nice RMR stream for them. The ability is to add new RMR to an existing business model with no investment, com- mitments or quotas which makes becoming a certified partner especially attractive." As the length of time required to keep video continues to increase, many end users need storage for up to three to five years. For example, the Cannabis industry requires four years of video storage in some states, while the statute of limitations for workplace liability suits in New York is three years. "Lawyers have figured out that if you wait for a certain period of time, there won't be any video footage saved," Liers said. "We have been to court with the product and technology sev- eral times, and we know it does hold up in court and we are able to give end users peace of mind that they are going to have their video when the time comes." He continued, "We are getting interest from state-owned col- leges, and even municipalities, because they self insure, and that liability suit can take, for exam- ple, $80,000 out of their coffers to settle the claim, so there is a huge return on investment when they use this product." Moving forward, Maggio is excited to "continue to spread the word about our storage solu- tion and educate people about the fact that there is a solution to the largest gap in the security industry today, which is the reli- ability of storing and having that data for as long as you need it at an affordable cost."
