When Deadlines Were Looming, SAI Global Turned to avsnet for its Visual Communications…
With six weeks notice to relocate, SAI Global, an audit information services and solutions company, elicited the help of avsnet to design and install multiple meeting rooms, its reception, and a staff breakout area in its new Milton Keynes office.
Originally shell office space, SAI Global now has a broad range of modern meeting rooms and a contemporary reception to welcome clients. Its staff can also come together to collaborate on projects in a stylish breakout area, or simply take some time away from their desks.
Within three weeks, SAI Global has already begun to see a significant return on investment. avsnet helped install an advanced training suite which has opened up a stable revenue stream for the company. Furthermore, the positive response to the interactive whiteboards has improved staff morale, strengthened engagement in meetings and helped reinforce communication between team members.
Particularly innovative is a custom-built room separated by a removable partition. This multifunction area can be reconfigured with a variety of furniture setups to maximise the space’s use. Whether laid out as a standard boardroom, an oval meeting space or a classroom-style training area, the room’s AV equipment adjusts according to the chosen configuration. Depending on the arrangement, different speakers activate to ensure the acoustics are serving the room’s users.
This flexibility in design is mirrored in avsnet’s commitment to meeting SAI Global’s relocation deadline. Despite the extremely short turnaround period, avsnet worked around the clock to ensure its installations were ready for the office’s opening.
“We’ve been extremely impressed with avsnet’s commitment to the project. Their engineering team worked long hours and weekends to make sure everything was in place and functioning correctly. Add to that the excellent after sales support we’ve had and we couldn’t be happier.” Stuart Carrison, IT&T Manager – Corporate Services EMEA at SAI Global
avsnet provided a training team post-installation to ensure SAI Global’s workforce were familiar with the all the functions of its new equipment.
Stuart Carrison concluded, “With a range of technical knowledge in our organisation, having an AV expert explain in simple-to-understand language how the equipment works was extremely welcome, especially to staff that aren’t familiar with the technology.”
"I would have no hesitation in recommending avsnet for any AV and VC projects, small or large."
"The whole process has been brilliant. We did initial user testing, chose to move forward immediately and haven’t looked back since."
"avsnet’s engineering team worked long hours and weekends to make sure everything was in place and working. Add excellent after sales support and we couldn’t be happier."
"We were extremely impressed with avsnet’s knowledge, technical skill, delivery methods and their overall flexibility."
"We weren’t entirely sure what technology we needed for our communications strategy, so avsnet worked closely with us to ensure we were choosing the right options."
"The team fully understood what we needed and provided us with a range of communications solutions that we as a business are proud of."
