Case Study: Zurich Insurance Group

Zurich Insurance Group’s new North America headquarters in Schaumburg, Ill., is intended to be a place where people want to work. AVI-SPL’s role in fulfilling that vision was to implement solutions that would give employees the collaborative technology that help them work — and work together — effectively. That would include meeting spaces equipped for video conferencing, audio conferencing, and presentations. It would also mean technicians and engineers applying their design and programming skills to deliver Zurich’s must-haves:

  • Technology that is simple, reliable, and intuitive
  • A consistent experience from room to room
  • Meetings that start on time

In the following link, hear from Zurich’s leaders about working with AVI-SPL and how we helped realize their vision using solutions from technology partners like Polycom, Crestron, Haivision, Shure, NEC, and Da-Lite.
