50 Stores, 300 Total Cameras - Embedded NVR Vs Software VMS?

My clients are mostly residential and smb but I want to propose a quote to a larger potentially new client that has 50 stores with 4-6 cameras each on average. I am weighing the advantages and disadvantages of non-licensed embedded solutions (hikvision) vs software based solutions... I understand the benefits of software based setup but I don't believe i can sell $30,000 in camera license fees to a company that chose to use Lorex IP cameras at each location. I wan't to sell a solution and gradually upgrade the stores over time. I was just wondering if anyone would want to put their two cents in so i can get some ideas on the setup they'd recommend. The cameras don't have any specific analytical needs other than viewing entrances and cash handling.
