AV-iQ Teams with USAV
By InfoComm International, 02/03/2014
The InfoComm International-powered, web-based AV industry resource AV-iQ and USAV are uniting to create a custom program that would link USAV's Preferred Manufacturer Partners (PMPs) with USAV AV Integrator Members. Each USAV AV Integrator member will sign up individually for AV-iQ and select USAV PMPs among their supplier selections.
Once USAV has a critical mass of AV Integrator Members enrolled, PMPs will be contacted to provide such members with preferred pricing (or standard price sheets where there is no preferred pricing) directly on AV-iQ. PMPs will be expected to maintain this pricing and ensure it is current.
“The competitive nature of our industry demands that we become more efficient in designing and integrating projects for our customers”, said K.C. Schwarz, USAV CEO. “AV-iQ is a win-win because it leverages our relationships with our Preferred Manufacturer Partners and improves efficiencies within our dealer base - where the rubber meets the road! We’re focusing on AV-iQ because we firmly believe it’s positive for everyone!"
“InfoComm is pleased that a world-class organization like USAV is relying on AV-iQ to deliver added value to their membership,” said John Fuchs, Senior Vice President of InfoComm iQ. “By teaming with InfoComm iQ, USAV is reducing the paperwork burden and reducing the likelihood of pricing errors for its members.”
