AVI Systems, Inc. and iTeam, Inc. Announce Digital Signage Installation Partnership

AVI Systems enhances digital signage services with iTeam's unique installation process and nationwide network of technicians

Westford, MA May 08, 2012

iTeam, Inc., a leading nationwide provider of audio visual and IT installation services, and AVI Systems, Inc., one of the top five audio visual integrators in the nation, have announced a partnership to handle large-scale digital signage rollouts. iTeam will provide digital signage installation and support services to AVI Systems, using iTeam's Service-as-a-Product™ approach and proprietary iPlatform™ system. This new partnership positions AVI Systems to provide nationwide service to clients in need of highly-distributed, large-scale digital signage deployments.

With their unique approach known as Service-as-a-Product™ (SaaP™), iTeam has rapidly become the industry leader in packaged outsourcing of digital signage installations. Invented by iTeam, SaaP transforms complex installation processes into packaged products. It combines: 1) productized installation services, 2) processes to anticipate and accommodate site-to-site environmental variations, 3) dedicated iTeam Service Advisors to manage every installation event, 4) a proven nationwide network of high quality field installers, and 5) unprecedented visibility and control provided by iTeam's iPlatform™ software. AVI Systems' state-of-the-art digital display designs and iTeam's Service-as-a-Product approach will make large-scale deployments predictable and cost-efficient and will virtually eliminate the unexpected delays and cost overruns often associated with larger scale distributed deployments.

"We have chosen to work with iTeam due to several key benefits available only from iTeam," said Jeff Stoebner, President and CEO of AVI Systems. "Service-as-a-Product will allow us to simplify the complicated quoting process by providing well-defined packaged products with predictable fixed costs. Their proprietary iPlatform system will enable us to streamline the sales and fulfillment process and provide us with tools to monitor service delivery. Knowing that our clients will have a dedicated iTeam Service Advisor and highly qualified technicians to handle their digital signage installations means that AVI Systems can focus on our particular areas of excellence."

"With our nationwide installation network, AVI Systems is now well-positioned to roll out small and large-scale digital signage installation projects," said William Kazman, CEO of iTeam. "Whether it's for a dozen or hundreds of digital signage installations, AVI Systems can use iTeam's Service-as-a-Product approach, resources and systems to confidently and profitably deploy these solutions for their customers and to manage the risks inherent in large-scale digital signage deployments."
