5 Benefits of an AV Consultation

on October 03, 2017

Starting the process of incorporating AV technology  can be an intimidating challenge, which is why an AV consultation can provide a clear window into your business’s needs, from the must-haves to the dream setup. Your consultant will help you find the best solutions for your company while staying within your budget. It is the AV consultant’s job to be educated on every potential use of AV technology that your business might need. When you are thinking about AV technology, consider these five benefits of an AV consultation.

Your business will get a tailored solution

As the client, you deserve to get what you want within the budget you have to keep. When you work with highly-informed consultants, they make that possible. It’s not just about making sure your suite of AV is as voluminous as it can be, but making sure that you only use the tech you need. Instead of buying products based on a flashy sales presentation, you will be able to make an informed decision so every penny is utilized in making a more complete AV experience work for your business. 

Maximize your strengths and minimize your weaknesses

Making AV upgrades to your office is a great way to look more professional and impress clients, but these are just cosmetic changes. AV can transform your internal efficiency by increasing collaboration using collaborative technology. An AV consultation can help with this by showing you scalable options for creating better collaborative spaces. These opportunities to streamline communications offer a new kind of flexibility for your employees to go wherever they do their best work, while still staying closely connected to the office. 

Stay up to date and current

You may already have an AV setup in place that works perfectly for your needs, but how do you know you’re running the most up-to-date system? It may be more cost-efficient for you to upgrade some of your equipment to a newer, more efficient model while saving money keeping the equipment that can still do the job you need. Similarly, you may find that something as simple as a security update or a better management system may be all you need to get your system up and running in top shape.

Keep costs low

Upgrading your AV tech can get expensive quickly if you’re upgrading without the help of qualified professionals. One of the most important functions of an AV consultation is to make sure that the clients spend their money wisely. An AV technician can help you decide what your yearly maintenance costs should be, and what a long-term plan for maintenance will look like so you never have to be surprised by an unexpected bill.

Ongoing support

Your AV consultant will take the time to get to know your business and your goals for the future, and can help keep your system working the way you need it to work. Your AV consultant will have an intimate working knowledge of your system. As usability must be central to your AV-upgraded workplace, having instant access to qualified, knowledgeable support personnel is the difference between a dazzling, media-heavy presence in the workplace, and an office full of thousand-dollar paper weights. It’s your AV consultant’s job to make sure that every screen and keystroke adds value to your employees’ time and efficiency.  HB Communications can partner with you to provide counsel and support so that you can experience the full benefits of your next AV Design.
