Dan Newman’s recent article for Commercial Integrator isn’t just a warning to commercial AV businesses; it’s a set of criteria that companies should use when shopping for an AV and unified communications provider.
Dan covers a handful of mistakes that AV integrators need to overcome if they want to remain competitive. Those mistakes include being too slow, incomplete service, and working with the wrong manufacturers.
AVI-SPL isn’t making those mistakes.
Rather, AVI-SPL embodies traits and abilities that companies should look for in a partner that provides digital workplace solutions and services.
- AVI-SPL Smart Spaces is a catalog of ready-to-deploy meeting rooms that allows for easy collaboration and presentation using the latest in AV and UC technology, including video collaboration and wireless presentation systems.
- Our research and development team is always improving AVI-SPL’s Symphony managed services platform, which is the cornerstone of its award-winning video managed services. Symphony automates the scheduling, launching, and management of your meetings, gives you the ability to monitor and manage your AV and UC estate (including rooms and devices), and generates the reports you need to guide your AV and UC investment.
- AVI-SPL is the only AV and UC solutions provider that is part of JLL’s Workplace Strategy Council. To share its commitment to workplace transformation, AVI-SPL hosts educational events throughout North America. JLL, a global professional services company that specializes in real estate, is a valuable partner with us in delivering these events, because they help explain the future of work and how companies must adjust to attract and retain the best employees. I frequently share insights from JLL on this blog, including this one on the 3-30-300 rule.
- AVI-SPL meets with Fortune 500 companies in its Customer Advisory Board to understand what they need to improve collaboration in the future workplace. These meetings have helped us understand the issues these companies want us to help them solve, including voice control in meeting rooms, workplace flexibility, and the need for video collaboration systems that are reliable and easy to use.
