Advanced AV, LLC Announces New Engineering Procedures
West Chester, PA – June 29, 2015 – Advanced AV, LLC announces the implementation of the TEAM approach in their engineering procedures. In an effort to streamline their process, an engineer and a drafter work continuously together to move from one project to another. This provides better time management and fluid movement between projects.

“The TEAM concept has proven to be a real success in engineering,” said Susan Lucci, engineer manager for Advanced AV, LLC. “The procedure establishes a better understanding of our clients likes and preferences, creates a stronger relationship between the client and engineering team and has allowed us to execute more efficiently.”

Engineering works together as teams for ninety percent of current Advanced AV, LLC’s projects. If a project is delayed, rather than abruptly shifting an engineer or drafter to other projects, the TEAM concept allows for a more organic shift to and from projects. This enables the teams to have the flexibility to manage difficult timelines. This small efficiency of time is beneficial when scheduling projects.

“We currently have three established teams using the TEAM concept and will continue to implement this approach with additional teams. The collaboration and mix of knowledge has brought strength and confidence to our engineering team,” said Lucci.

3 Advantages of Cloud for Small to Midsize Businesses

In today’s rapidly-changing business landscape there are a multitude of challenges for small and mid-size businesses. As a small business owner, some of the most critical challenges you are likely wrestling with are your ability to reach and stay connected to your customers and prospects via mobile devices, flexibility in the handling of data, and a seamless exchange of information. Moreover, you likely also have to compete against bigger enterprises that are better equipped with workforce and technology. This is where the going gets tough and the tough get smart. And it’s also where cloud technology can make all the difference in the world.

What is Cloud Technology, Anyway?

Cloud Technology or Cloud Computing is an internet-based computing process. While in the past, people used applications and programs through their computers or servers, cloud technology has made it possible to perform the same kind of activities using the Internet.

Cloud hosting supports all sorts of information-sharing. Things like  email services, application hosting, web-based phone systems, video conferencing, data storage, and a lot more. The reason this matters is that cloud technology is  faster, smarter and less expensive than the old school technology we’ve been accustomed to.

So, why are businesses moving to cloud?

Why is cloud so attractive? Well, that’s easy. Cloud tech offers SMBs the chance to streamline operations and fine-tune processes by not having to reinvent the wheel or buy expensive solutions. SMBs can use cloud for a myriad of things, including inventory management, invoicing, project management and collaboration, access to data, analysis, and data storage – you name it, cloud can deliver. Small and mid-sized businesses are the biggest adopters of cloud-based systems at 38% and 48% respectively, while large enterprises account for just 26% of total […]

AV Network Announces Industry Game Changers

Below is a new article from AVNetwork that announces 9 of the great minds that are changing the AV Industry. Click here to see the original article. 
The New Work: The Nine Who Are Changing the AV Industry
By Kirsten Nelson On August 04, 2014
You know that person who is always just having a little bit too much fun to really be running a successful business? They never really gave up playing a musical instrument, or maybe they surf every morning before showing up to the office. They probably make a habit of cycling 100 miles at sunrise, race dirt bikes on the weekends, or indulge in some random act of sailing, golfing, mountain biking, hiking, or just walking the streets with an eye open toward the art and sound all around us.

 

 The Nine (l-r): (top row) Kelly Perkins, Kari Rae Seekins, Chance Turner; (center row) Morteza Ghazi-Tehrani, Anne Guthrie, Alex Mayo; (bottom row) Greg Rushton, Tory Holmwood, Elizabeth Kelson.

How on earth does that person, with all their “hobbies,” ever get any work done?

I’ll tell you how. Successful, innovative, visionary people do not have hobbies. They just live, every single day, with the utmost gusto. Nothing is saved for later, everything is an opportunity to inform, change, move. Right now.

The audio and video technology industry and its various application segments were built by people who not only took their work home with them, they made work have real purpose in their lives. The cast of founding characters includes the small-town radio and PA operator who insisted that “moving pictures” could be shown outdoors in his hometown after he came home from the war. The powerful, fashionable politician who decided that she could build AV hardware in America, […]
