It is very difficult to list every offering the Advisist Group has available. We are not saying, we can do everything. We are realizing that as the list of things we are knowledgeable about is long. In the past three decades of working in professional audio, video, and lighting we have had many roles. Bradford, our leader, has been a student, a teacher, an operator, a technical manager, a specifier, a designer, a fabricator and an installer. He has done these roles in various guises. He has worked for integration firms, He has worked for manufacturers, and he just finished work as a technical manager. This history is what we are drawing on as our company moves forward.
Not only can the team draw upon its own personal experience, the team has a wide network of partners who are able to provide services that Advisist cannot. Below are just a few of the items that are available. We do not provide “package” programs as each client is different and has their own needs. We also base our pricing and estimates, not on time but on the value of the service. It is similar to being commissioned to write an article. The article is worth a set amount. It does not matter if it takes three hours or three days to write. That is the value the parties agreed to for the article.
To start the conversation we have listed some of the services we offer. We are expanding and developing the list please reach out to us with any questions.
Creating bid documents can be an overwhelming process for both integrators and stakeholders. The documentation process indicating the project needs and intent is not simple. Clearly defining what is considered success is important. Documenting the deliverables and process expectations is a key portion of this process.
Budgets are quite often a limiting constraint for a project. Being able to properly estimate and budget the project largely impacts its success. Some of the challenges come from not understanding what technology already exists that can be leveraged versus developing new solutions at a higher cost.
The AV Industry is a melding of art, science, and business. There is an industry saying, “if you have a discussion with three technical people, you will end up with five answers or opinions.” Some of these opinions are based on experience, some are personal feelings, and some are just instinct. In creating commentary Advisist can distill these complex ideas down to manageable thoughts. The creation of a coherent comparison of contrasting ideas is an effective way to provide insight.
Audio, Video, and Control systems are not completely independent, they need to interact with many things. No only do these systems need to work with the major systems in the building, such as telephone, building management, and Internet. The systems must interact and work within the facility itself.
Given the changes in the world, staffing has become a challenge. Often there is too much to do and not enough time in which to do it. Advisist is ready to lend a hand when needed; whether for two hours or two months. We can serve as a short-term labor enhancement, allowing you to accomplish more in less time.
The ability to share detailed information about products or concepts is important. This information does not simply mean talking about the unique selling points of the product, it is explaining the ways in which the product can address issues can directly impact the customer. A white paper is a great tool to convey concepts that are important to understanding the solutions offered.
