Summary

One of ITAV Solutions' confidential clients, a global semiconductor company based in the United States, is a perennial name on the Fortune 500 list. This industry giant has earned numerous other distinctions throughout its history. The client operates numerous business divisions and more than 200 offices domestically and abroad. Despite its worldwide presence, this company continues to support the local San Diego community in which it is headquartered.

Corporations of all sizes use audio/video conferencing to enhance communications and decrease travel costs. Projectors and screens, ceiling speakers, flat panel displays and structured cabling create a system whereby users around the world can meet “face to face” without leaving their offices. Keeping these conferencing solutions updated with the latest technology and adding convenient controls improve the system’s ease of use, speed and reliability, allowing the components to take a backseat while the participants are able to focus on the business at hand. This results in the most positive meeting experience possible for all users.

ITAV Solutions consulted with this client in Madrid, Spain and determined that a Polycom CX5000 unified conference station, designed for use with Microsoft Unified Communications solutions, would suit the staff’s needs. This station included
• 1 power data box
• 2 satellite microphones
• 1 external dial pad

 ITAV shipped the equipment overseas and arranged for a local installer to perform the setup, thereby saving the client time and money.

In addition to consulting and global project management, ITAV Solutions has expert knowledge in supporting international shipping logistics. Shipping components across the United States is a relatively straightforward process; for global clients, however, proper international shipping logistics is vital to ensuring that projects are implemented both on time and on budget. With today’s convergence of IT and AV, along with the interaction of AV with other trades, not having the proper AV equipment at the right time can cost the customer money due to project delays. Effective international shipping logistics requires a working knowledge of value-added taxes (VAT), the nuances of how to work with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and a firm project management background to handle the various time zones and communication challenges associated with shipping components globally.

ITAV Solutions brings its experience with Fortune 500 firms to its ongoing relationship with this tech company and has worked extensively in a majority of the client's domestic and international locations. The expert project managers and installers at ITAV combine their small-business personal touches with big-business know-how, providing friendly customer service while getting the job done on time and on budget. When it comes to audiovisual installations, ITAV excels at meeting the demanding technological needs of innovative global corporations such as this one.
