AV Estate Costs

Are your global AV costs centrally managed? Are you achieving economies of scale? Do you have visibility of your AV and VC assets? We ensure all your answers are Yes!

THE PRICES YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE PAYING

HIDDEN COSTS

Every year, global enterprises spend millions on AV technology. The costs cover everything from group presentations, connectivity for laptops and office signage to special rooms, flexible spaces and control desks. None of these costs are centrally managed. How can you track, let alone control them?

MULTIPLE CONTRACTS

Traditionally, AV/VC is procured locally on an individual project-by-project basis. Across your estate, you could have hundreds of contracts with different providers. Are you maximising economies of scale and optimising your purchasing power?

LACK OF VISIBILITY

Are you able to collect your AV/VC asset data? Is it up to date? Do you have clarity on what is working and what isn’t? How are you managing and planning the lifecycle of your assets?

THE SERVICE DILEMMA

Do you rely on having engineers dispatched to site, often out of hours? Do you lack centralised spares holdings? It all adds up to expensive AV/VC service. In fact, the costs may deter you from having any cover at all. If so, are your users frustrated, your real estate under-utilised and your internal support teams (such as IT support) under value-draining pressure?

THE CHALLENGES YOU FACE

Delivering consistent, high-quality experiences at an affordable cost depends on two factors. 1. An approach that supports the unique needs of each space. 2. Deploying standardised technology within a standardised management framework. To achieve these, you need to be able to answer these questions:

  • How can we reduce the costs associated with running and maintaining our AV networks and infrastructure?
  • How do we budget for our AV requirements?
  • How can we adopt a more joined-up approach to deploying AV technology and avoid fragmented decision-making?
  • How can we reduce the overheads associated with managing multiple AV, VC and digital media suppliers?
  • How can we engage one or two preferred suppliers with procurement approval to ensure best value?

THE ANSWERS WE GIVE YOU

Our establishment and consistent application of standards to each project, our system integrator selection and management, and our system support for multiple projects globally all combine to absorb significant resources:

  • Lower costs than in-house with AVMI’s Enterprise Engagement service, designed to deliver the lowest possible cost
  • Lower technology costs with centralised design and build management to aggregate demand and negotiate volume pricing deals
  • Lower support costs through deployment with ‘over the network’ support capabilities, cutting engineer visits
