What is Milestone Deployment Assistant?

The Deployment Assistant will help you organize deployment and manage the risk and complexity of installing an IP video surveillance system. By providing a structured and easy to follow approach to deployment and documentation, the new interactive tool will boost the quality of your deployment.

How will the tool help you

  • Hands on tasks and steps to guide you through the sequential process of deploying a XProtect system
  • A clickable checklist to easily document who completed each step and when
  • Extensive guidance for each step, vetted by experienced Milestone Solution and Support engineers
  • The ability to add detailed notes about how to configure a given project, and how each step was implemented
  • Efficient handoff of projects from one technician to another, along with an ability to manage more than one project at a time

On project completion, the checklist can be printed and presented to the customer for a final acceptance review and signoff.
