XTEN-AV Blog #5: 5 Ways to Automate Systems Design and Quoting Processes
Behind every successful AV installation is a thoughtful system design devised to achieve a reliable, intuitive, easy-to-maintain and cost-effective solution to the individual needs of the venue. AV integrators and systems designers oversee the needs, analysis, design, installation and management of a project’s audiovisual components. They consider the venue itself, collaborate with a team that includes the client, architect and installer, all while taking into account industry standards, the latest technology and a solution that works for today with the flexibility to anticipate the needs of tomorrow.
System designers create the blueprint for a wide range of venues including conference rooms, executive boardrooms, training centers, classrooms, auditoriums, houses of worship, sports venues, medical facilities, courtrooms, hotels and casinos. While each project has its own unique technical challenges, there’s also the practicalities of ensuring that schedules are manageable, deadlines realistic, and everyone’s informed and on the same page.
Anything that can make the systems design workflow more intuitive and streamlined is a plus. XTEN-AV, the first cloud-based, AI-powered AV design software created to support AV integrators and facilitate their design and quoting processes, aims to do just that.
