ON THE ADVANCE: Mirroring national trends, 2010 was a year of strengthening recovery for Advanced AV. Economic indicators and anecdotal evidence, say its principals, point to a return to pre-recession form, both for Advanced AV and the overall industry.
“At the end of 2009 we straightened up a bit,” says company President Mike Boettcher. “That set us up for a very good 2010, and a good beginning to this year. Although it’s tough to anticipate what’s down the road, all indications so far are that things seem to be bouncing back. The activity is still high, and that’s a good sign.”
Advanced AV was recently honored with a DIGI Award for services provided to two Swiss Farms locations. Digital signage, predicts VP of Marketing & Sales John Greene, will continue to foster Advanced AV’s growth in 2011. “We’re also very intent on focusing on our service contracts and Managed Services Offering,” he adds. “We’ve had great success this past year in that. One of the service staffing opportunities that we were involved in brought us international exposure. We’ve been very successful and anticipate continued success and growth for Advanced in this area.”
A commitment to exemplary service is demonstrated by Advanced AV’s 24/7 ROW solution, a “24/7/365 rest-of-world response,” says Greene, that is presently being developed and introduced to existing customers. “Many of our clients,” he explains, “are multiple-location, international companies. Our clients are requiring that deliverable; we have met that obligation over the past year and are anticipating growth for 2011.”
Among projects completed in 2010 were a nurse training simulation center for a healthcare facility; and a corporate training solution utilizing live video situational simulation exercises, together with streaming and test archival review to classroom spaces.
