Make Life Easier: Standardize Your Audio Visual

Posted by Abby Wolfe on 04/05/2017

In the age of technology-run businesses, your platform is only as good as its audio visual (AV) systems.

Standardizing your audio visual system allows your business to become more connected, creating uniformity
across offices. Simplifying this major business asset or investing in your first standard AV system is a
smart move—and one that could improve your brand in more ways than one. Let’s explore.

 

Make the Transition to Standardization

If you were an early adopter of audio visual solutions and have more than one business location, odds are that
each office has its own setup– computer monitors, phones, video tools, and control rooms. While this
may have worked for the last several years, it’s likely decreasing your efficiency and ability to collaborate.
Managing multiple teams across locations requires seamless collaboration. As you might have experienced, having a situation where every location has a separate AV system can lead to a myriad of problems. That’s where standardization comes in.
Standardizing your system and configuration can ensure that all your locations operate using the ideal audio visual solution for your company. Managing multiple AV systems with many different components and moving parts can lead to major system breakdown and expensive lapses in operations.
Eliminate the difficulties and confusion that stems from using more than one audio visual system with standardization. The
benefits of standardized AV include:
  • Increase team member mobility. Employees at one office no longer have to surmount the major roadblock of learning new equipment when they switch or visit locations. Instead, employees can immediately continue operations without interruption in the new office, using the audio visual system as he or she would at the original office. One cohesive system across offices enables greater employee mobility and flexibility.
  • Make troubleshooting a breeze. With just one audio visual system across all your office locations, individual IT teams will be able to troubleshoot problems with less hassle. Your IT team will get to know your standardized system in and out and solve problems in any office location without having to investigate a brand new system.
  • Master AV management. A managed service provider (MSP) can monitor your standardized audio visual system from a central hub, bringing a high level of IT expertise to your brand. Your MSP will oversee the infrastructure for your business, fixing problems and optimizing efficiency.
  • Enjoy a cohesive system. It’s easier to manage one system compared to forcing two systems to work together. Uniform hardware, software, and operating systems boost business efficiency. One unified AV system optimizes disaster recovery solutions, technology upgrades, and employee training.

Master Audio Visual Standardization with Professional Help

In 2017, being able to communicate and collaborate quickly and efficiently is key. Whether you’re trying to facilitate greater internal communications and collaboration within the organization or provide better customer service, having the right tools to facilitate that is critical. An advanced audio visual system can be the answer to fast and efficient business practices— but only if you’ve employed the right setup for your brand.
Choosing the right standardized AV provider takes assessing your current AV solutions, defining goals for a unified AV future, and finding the company that offers customized systems.
