GreatAmerica Announces Bundling Product for Audio Visual Market
(Cedar Rapids, IA) – GreatAmerica Financial Services announced the release today of AV AMP, a new financial bundling product that incorporates monthly service fees into invoices from systems integrators and contractors. AV AMP simplifies the often confusing AV market transactions that separate the equipment purchase from the service agreement on separate invoices. Moreover, AV AMP helps those who aren’t consistently selling service agreements get started.
AV AMP was developed with help from the National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA), a non-profit association that represents the commercial low-voltage electronic systems industry. The relationship is focused on helping AV Systems Integrators improve transactions with simpler invoicing and integrating monthly payment options into quotes for their customers.
“Technology is bought and sold through monthly payments – and that now includes AV,” said Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director. “Financing is beneficial not just for integrators, but also for their customers. The GreatAmerica AV AMP program gives NSCA members a new way to help their customers access the latest AV technology while also benefitting from a profitable recurring revenue business model.”
GreatAmerica has traditionally worked with resellers of office technology such as copiers, printers, business communications and networking equipment.
“We’ve seen the results As-A-Service models provide in other industries and we want integrators and their customers to share these benefits too,” said Wil Meggers, Vice President and General Manager of the GreatAmerica Unified Communications and IT Group. “We’re looking forward to learning more about the market and how to best serve integrators as they transition to AV AMP.”
The National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) is the leading not-for-profit association representing the commercial low-voltage electronic systems industry. NSCA is a powerful advocate for all who work within the low-voltage industry, including systems contractors/integrators, product manufacturers, consultants, sales representatives, architects, specifying engineers, and other allied professionals. NSCA is dedicated to serving its contractor members and all channel stakeholders through advocacy, education, member services, and networking designed to improve business performance.
