Andrew Harrisson, CEO of Cornerstone Solutions said, “Receiving the NBA Award for Export is a great acknowledgement of the hard work our team has put into developing a world class product.

“Our photoSentinel Pro long-term timelapse photography equipment has been used all over the world and, thanks especially to the amazing support from the Victorian Government’s Fast track export program, that number is growing quickly.

“We’re proud to be a small Melbourne, business exporting great Australian Made equipment around the world.”

photoSentinel is exporting to new countries regularly. We have personally been to four continents to meet with photographers and are able to travel worldwide to help with complex installations. The 3G connectivity and excellent system reporting allow our technical staff to monitor all the units from our Melbourne office.

2014 will see the photoSentinel team capitalising on more export opportunities with particular focus on the US, Middle East and Asia.
