Selecting a reliable systems audio visual integration company to handle your project is a vital step in the success of your business. With technology getting more advanced and complex by the minute, it's hard to rest easy with your current system setup. This is especially true now that lines between IT and A/V are becoming more blurry than ever. It won't be long before these technologies become synonymous, which is why your system should be set not only for technology but for integration as well. First, some distinctions between systems contractors and independent IT consultants; like IT and A/V, lines are blurred between these professions and many systems contractors are IT consultants themselves. It's a matter of knowing what you need to decide if you need one or the other or if you will benefit more from an actual systems integrator.
A systems contractor manages all aspects of technology projects. In the case of new facilities and/or renovation projects, a systems contractor will work with engineers, architects, and designers, hire subcontractors if necessary, obtain building permits, and schedule inspections as the project needs. Many also refer to themselves as design and build professionals, which means they also have internal resources to see your project through from conception to completion and take responsibility for the entirety of the project. Some contractors on the other hand, may provide only a subset of what more comprehensive service providers offer or a portion of a technology package, which can be beneficial if you don't really need a complete revamp of your system.
Independent technology consultants also have distinct roles to play in setting up IT and tech systems. They are often contracted to provide an unbiased opinion, with the help of their expertise on the working system design. They too, work with engineers and architects to help evaluate designs and proposals set by contractors as well as develop bid packages that will best benefit your project. They can provide extremely valuable inputs during the design phases of your AV integration, especially when it comes to cost estimation and overall design.
The best way to find the best and the right technology provider for your business is to ask around and visit similar facilities within your area so you can know which companies can provide you with stellar work. Choose one with a good reputation and has a proven track record for providing excellent service. Most importantly, choose a contractor that understands the needs of your business and the market you are serving.
