AN OVERVIEW OF AVMI'S INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS
Leading AV integrator expands its international reach with the continuing growth and success of its Global Partner Programme and award-winning service delivery model
GLOBAL COVERAGE, LOCAL EXPERTISE
Backed by over 10 years of international experience, AVMI is able to offer a full service approach from planning and design, through to integration and on-going support services for everything from one-off custom audio visual projects to wide scale deployments of standardised solutions and environments, regardless of location.
AVMI has a dedicated International Business division offering a unique and structured approach to clients’ global AV strategies. Where required, our specialist team can design an appropriate service architecture and management model on a global or country-by-country basis, for an individual customer’s needs. This can also include taking care of billing and tax issues, logistics, selection of technology and other key issues when globally deploying solutions.
AVMI GLOBAL PARTNER PROGRAMME
Since we first launched our Global Partner Programme in 2007, we have amassed over 80 partners across 40 countries to deliver worldwide projects and support contracts for our multi-national customers across EMEA, Asia Pacific and the Americas.
AVMI’s Global Partner Programme is the largest independent partner network in the industry – giving us the breadth and scale to service our clients on a truly global basis.
Through our Global Partner Programme, we can structure projects and contracts to bring the best value for money to our customers and better cope with peaks and troughs in demand. We can also bring in different product or service specialities where required.
Today we cover every state in the US and feature multiple partners in most geographies, allowing us to accommodate resource coverage and offer clients an appropriate degree of price competition. As a result, we have been able to demonstrate average discounts of up to 20-30% for some of our larger global clients.

STANDARDISED DELIVERY MODEL
Although there has been a strong trend to standardise systems, many still struggle to develop a meeting room standard that can be deployed and supported on a global basis to drive efficiencies and deliver true ROI.
That is why in 2016, AVMI launched ‘Streamline’, a new service featuring an online management portal that makes it easier, faster and more cost-effective to design, implement and support standardised meeting spaces – regionally and globally – in a consistent and scalable way.
The service has been successfully proven at a number of large clients including HSBC where AVMI designed a global meeting room standard using the Streamline framework, delivering over 250 rooms across 12 countries in just 18 months – ranging from huddle spaces to complicated boardrooms and event spaces.

Streamline is delivered by our specialist teams based out of our offices in London, New York and Hong Kong for global time zone coverage and solutions can be delivered globally, courtesy of the deployment capability of our Global Partner Programme.
“Streamline puts AVMI on the leading edge of the integration game and positions the company well to meet the ever-changing and global demands of the industry and clients”.

CREATING A GLOBAL AV STANDARD
AVMI recently teamed up with independent analyst firm Wainhouse Research for its whitepaper, ‘Deploying and Managing a Global AV Environment’, to look at the importance and challenges of implementing global AV standards.
Providing organisations with information and insight into choosing the right AV approach, Wainhouse Research’s study highlights that services which focus on the creation and embracing of standards – such as AVMI’s new Streamline service – will “play an increasingly important role in global AV environments in the future”, categorising AVMI’s process and management systems in this area as “exceptional.”
