But on the other hand, you probably aren’t audio video consultant yourself, and hiring one might feel like an expense that you just can’t swing. We know, every dollar spent is money out of your pocket. However, the benefits of working with an audio video consultant definitely outweigh the cost of it. If you don’t buy it, check out our list of benefits of working with an audio video consultant:
Three Benefits of Working With an Audio Video Consultant
- Your consultant will help you create the audio video system design tailor made to match your needs.
Every AV system manufacturer will want you to think their product is the best for your business. Sometimes though, the best setup involves equipment from several different suppliers. While you might not have the knowledge of AV equipment to understand which equipment is best for your system on your own, the supplier themselves isn’t going to tell you that you should use some of their equipment, and then go to their competitor for some pieces.
However, when you set up your AV system with an audio visual consultant, they don’t have a bias to push their product on you. An audio visual consultant’s mission is only to help you create the best AV setup. In fact, your AV consultant will be able to leverage one supplier against another to get a great deal on your hardware.
When you use a consultant, you know you’ll end up with the best blend of equipment for your business, at the best deal.
- Your AV installation will be done professionally, the first time.
Your AV equipment is rather complicated and can be totally overwhelming for a non-techie to setup. If you get this wire wrong or that one, the quality of sound or visual is sacrificed, if it works at all. When you use an audio video specialist to do the work, you know that each component in your audio visual system is setup up with the best arrangement, for superior quality.
Additionally, some installation decisions won’t impact its ability to work or not, but the level of enjoyment that you’re able to get from it. Your AV specialist will help analyze your space and understand your AV goals to develop the best installation for you. In other words, the money you spend on an AV consultant will help you get the most bang for your AV system buck.
- You have your own personal tech guy.
It would be so nice if you were able to just ring your personal tech guy any time you have an issue or question or change to your audio visual system. But wait, you’re a small business owner. Your IT department is you. Your only option is to call the tech support for the manufacturer of the equipment, wait on hold for a while, then talk to a faceless voice who has no personal interest in your AV system or any reason to help you get the most out of your investment. They’ll probably tell you to try turning off and turning it on again. Maybe, if they’re good at their job, they’ll help you problem solve until you figure out how to fix an issue on your own. Maybe you’ll have to spend an arm and a leg bringing in a repair man to solve your problems.
On the other hand, let’s say you have an audio visual consultant who designed and helped you set up your AV system to begin with. If something isn’t working right, it’s a quick phone call to bring in a pro who will get it back in great functioning order. If you want to make a change, that’s just a quick phone call. If you have a question about it… you guessed it, just a quick phone call. Unlike the tech support guy you’re probably stuck on hold with, your AV consultant’s goal is to make sure you have the best AV experience possible.
