What is AVaaS?

Audiovisual as a service, or AVaaS, is a subscription-based model for the deployment, management, and upkeep of audiovisual systems and AV hardware. Rather than the traditional Capital Expenditure (CapEx) approach to purchasing expensive AV/IT assets and then depreciating them over many years, companies opt to subscribe to the equipment and related service turning it into an Operating Expense (OpEx). This approach removes the burden of large AV purchases every 5-7 years, makes budgeting for technology deployments easier, and ensures that your office stays outfitted with modern collaboration and communication tools. AVaaS contracts typically range 36-60 months and ensure that your workplace technology is always modern, clean, in working order, and most importantly – that your team has access to the support required to make the most of these tools!

Why should I consider AVaaS?

The traditional approach of spending capital dollars to purchase technology doesn’t work for many modern businesses. The tech landscape is constantly evolving, as are the technology needs of the modern workforce, and the AV equipment can quickly lose its value over its short lifecycle. Pair this with the fact that equipment is often depreciated over 5 years, with the hopes of getting 7 or more out of it, and you can quickly see why many businesses are opting to not make large capital investments in audiovisual systems.

Many businesses are switching to an AVaaS model instead, which allows them to keep their tech stack modern with automatic refreshes occurring every 3 to 5 years, and ongoing AV service and support that ensures reliability of systems, and that even the most non-technical users are able to operate them. This approach frees up capital to be invested where it counts; in people, R&D or marketing initiatives.

Keep staff happy by providing modern systems, make budgeting for new technology easier with a flat monthly fee, and give your business an innovative edge with reduced labor costs and systems scalability. Get peace of mind knowing that we have you covered.

Our approach

AV systems can be a difficult thing to navigate, but our approach is simple: help you make sense of what’s available and deploy a system that will be adopted by even the most non-technical users.

We consult with our clients to discuss communication & collaboration requirements on every project. This is most often conversation with leadership or technical teams, but frequently becomes an end user study to assess needs. From there our clients generally spend time exploring the options hands-on to understand what the technology can do for them and determine what they actually need vs what sounds nice to have.

Sometimes the needs and solutions are simple and we have extensively engineered solutions ready to go, such as our Lightning Rooms –  but for unique use cases our engineers design complete systems around the specific requirements. Once installed our support team works to train end users, delivering additional training whenever needed.
