We have been talking a lot lately about the benefits of embracing the AV-as-a-Service business model. But, this is not a new concept, it is just fairly new to the AV space.
“Customers are already consuming other technology that way, because it’s being sold like that by vendors in other technology verticals,” says Chad Sowers, Director of Business Development for GreatAmerica Financial Services. “Now, customers are starting to expect the same from AV, and that’s where GreatAmerica comes in. We can essentially be your bank on that.”
Now, integrators do not have to take their money and cash flow, and tie it up in equipment. GreatAmerica can carry the risk. This will make it easier for integrators to bundle in maintenance, services, remote monitoring and help desk or any other services the integrator offers.
“Under this paradigm, the integrators becomes a solution provider, offering a complete package to the customer,” says Sowers. “And there is zero cost barrier to entry, because the customer doesn’t have to write a big check up front for the capital expense. As AV integrators start to grow their services offering, and add more tools to their belt, this can help build recurring revenue.”
