“As-a-service” is a model that is changing the ways that businesses operate. This idea that traditionally expensive commercial platforms can be offered on a service based level is creating opportunities for organizations of every shape and size. The role that technology plays in daily operations and communication is not getting any smaller; it is in this sector that “as-a-service” has generated the most potential. Cloud based applications have catapulted SaaS (software-as-a-service) into becoming a business norm, and this same approach can be applied to audio/video integration.
Things should be simple. Learning curves need to be shallower. However, systems need to be more robust at the same time. When it comes to an arena like commercial audio/visual integration, the more automated and intuitive your platform can be, the better your space will perform. Blending these two necessities isn’t always simple, in fact it can be downright difficult; but it doesn’t need to be. The ease of usability for your platform comes down to the integrator you choose.
Everyone is familiar with the old adage, “you get what you pay for”. But more specifically, especially in business, you should get what you need. And likely what anyone can use is more time, fewer headaches, and a streamlined way to communicate. Just like if you wanted a safe, finely tuned, highly engineered car you’d consider an Audi or Mercedes. And a scratch golfer would opt for tour inspired irons from Titleist or Ping. Purchases like these are less about what you are buying and more about why you are buying it, for the results they will provide. When it comes to boardroom automation, while you are concerned with the different components and design, what you really want are results. Ease of use, reliability, collaboration, communication. Because you need these, you’ll want Crestron.
