When the economy is good, as it has been for several years now, it’s normal to see new businesses pop up. New AV companies are no exception to this. In the last few years, we’ve started to see other commercial AV companies start up in San Diego and throughout Southern California.
Healthy competition in any industry is a good thing, and when the economy is booming, there is plenty of work to go around. But there are a few things you need to take into consideration before you sign a contract for commercial AV services from a startup company.
A startup AV company in San Diego may be able to design and install a great AV system for your company or organization, and may even do it for less money than a more established company just to win the contract, but you want to make sure you are thinking about the future. As technology evolves, you’ll likely want to make changes to your original system or add to it as your company grows. You’ll also need some level of system support down the road.
What happens if the startup company that you hired to create and install your AV system is no longer in business? This would leave you in a tough spot. You’d then have to search for a new commercial AV company that would be willing to support a system designed and installed by someone else.
Hiring a commercial AV company in San Diego that is established and stable will help to ensure that the company will be around later when you need their services again.
Experience is Key
When it comes to the world of commercial AV installation, experience is extremely important. Experienced AV contractors are generally more adept at problem-solving because they’ve worked on so many different types of systems in various types of settings.
An experienced AV contractor will also know how to work with the various other professionals that may be involved in your project, such as architects, general contractors, and technology managers. They’ll be able to anticipate the concerns these types of professionals often bring up.
Extensive Product Knowledge
When you’ve worked in the AV industry for a while like Fluid Sound has, you start to know what products work well long-term and which ones should be avoided. For example, we have used NEC displays in many of our projects because we know they manufacture quality products that last. We know this because we have been working with NEC for many years. Our clients have been extremely pleased with their products and even ask for them by name when we have done subsequent projects for the same clients.
Hot new AV products come on the market almost daily, and while it’s important to stay on the cutting edge of technology in this industry, we also want to make sure that we are giving our clients systems they can depend on to work consistently.
