The Change Organisation is delighted to announce its new division, supplying complete AV solutions to the Reseller Market, featuring vendors such as Infinite-AV, Smart-E, Samsung and Scala.
AV is everywhere: whether supporting meeting room collaboration, presentation suites, lecture/seminar rooms, staff communications, live and recorded TV distribution, dealer floors, contact centres or digital signage. IT Managers are now typically responsible for the deployment and management of AV solutions across their estates – so they are looking to their IT Systems Integrator partners to support them.
Likewise, with the ever increasing convergence between IT and Audiovisual (AV) technologies, the ability for IT Systems Integrators to offer, deploy and support AV solutions is paramount.
The Change Organisaton is helping to close this gap by proactive expansion of its Audiovisual capabilities. Having agreed distribution with the likes of Samsung for large format displays, The Change has now secured distribution with Infinite-av (a leading designer and manufacturer of core Audiovisual technologies) and Smart-E (an AV designer and manufacturer). The Change Organisation is also able to offer the Scala Digital Signage platform to its channel, focusing on the Scala SaaS offering, with technical and creative support services to complement the leading signage platform.
Owain Williams, Sales Director commented, “2014 has seen The Change Organisation appoint 3 new Directors to the Board with the purpose being to create a leadership team able to take The Change Organisation into the next chapter of its history. Across the Company, we have the right staff in the right places to enable us to focus and deliver on our strategic plans for short and long term growth. One of these strategies is to continually introduce new products and services so as to consolidate our relationships with existing customers and enable us to attract new ones. The latest and most exciting launch of 2014 is our holistic Audio Visual Solution offering. As a Specialist IT Distributor, we are ideally placed to take advantage of the flourishing convergence between the IT and AV worlds and, with the support of the vendors we have selected to work with; Infinite-AV, Smart-E, Scala and Samsung, we are very excited about the new opportunities that this will present to us and our loyal customer base. We are delighted to be working with these market leading vendors and we believe this, coupled with our existing reputation for delivering a fantastic customer experience, adds further credibility to the offering. The Change Organisation are committed to making this a success for us and all those who want to be a part of it”
