AVI-SPL Showcasing Its New Managed Services Platform Features at InfoComm 2017

The AVI-SPL team is proud of its ability to be the one source companies and organizations of all types need for better collaboration and communication experiences. That ability ranges from consulting with our clients, engineering and deploying systems, and supporting rooms and technology with our managed services.

Those managed services just got better with the release of our Unify ME Symphony Platform 4.1, which has new features that we’re showcasing each day at InfoComm 2017.  As noted by Frost & Sullivan, Symphony is the heart of our managed video conferencing services. But Symphony does much more than remotely manage video conferences.

With Symphony, we monitor and manage all of the AV, video conferencing and unified communications systems of an organization, and track key metrics like room utilization, device usage, meeting modes, and real-time quality of the user experience.

With Symphony 4.1, we have a host of improved features and new capabilities:

  • Monitoring of all AV devices connected through a Crestron controller
  • Unified portal and user experience for scheduling VMR meetings and for monitoring meetings, rooms, and devices
  • Recording and streaming of video meetings
  • Set monitoring blackout periods cascaded from account to location to device
  • Microsoft Outlook add-in to create new Unify ME meeting

Throughout each day at InfoComm, our experts will be at our booth delivering live demonstrations of the new features in our Unify ME Symphony 4.1 monitoring and management platform. If you plan on being at InfoComm, we look forward to seeing you there and showing you how much Symphony can benefit your organization. Read the press release about this announcement. >

AVI-SPL Makes the CRN Solutions Provider 500 for 2017

For the second consecutive year, AVI-SPL has placed 51st on the 2017 CRN Solution Provider 500 list, CRN’s annual ranking of the largest solution providers by revenue in North America. The ranking is based on the revenues of top integrators, service providers, and IT consultants.  From CRN’s AVI-SPL entry:

AVI-SPL is a red-hot systems integrator that is quickly approaching the $1 billion revenue mark. The unified communications specialist was acquired by private equity firm H.I.G. Capital in April 2016 and has since made multiple acquisitions, including that of broadcasting platform specialist VideoLink in January and of Anderson Audio Visual in November.

Those acquisitions are part of AVI-SPL’s global expansion over the past six months, which includes our new office in Frankfurt, Germany, and partnership with Connected Vision Group, which helps us serve companies throughout Australia.

And there’s more to come, which we’ll be announcing at next week’s InfoComm event in Orlando. If you can’t make it to the Orange County Convention Center, add this blog to your favorites for updates.
