If you’re working on an upcoming project, consider what it would look like to work with a team that has absolutely NO incentive to sell you a single piece of equipment. Wouldn’t that be a breath of fresh air?

Imagine if you could work with a team that truly has your organization’s best interests in mind. A team that can help you prepare your bill of materials, gauge your budget, and then retrieve multiple proposals (confidentially) on your behalf from amazing integration partners across the nation who have the integrity and expertise to execute your vision. The AV Coalition team has over 200+ years of collective, production experience ranging from environments like Hillsong, Mosaic, Bethel, Upper Room, Life Church, Gateway, Elevation, and many more. 

Friends… Meet “AV Coalition” – a fully non-biased advocate here to advise and protect organizations through planning AVL projects and selecting integration partners.

How does the AV Co. process actually work? 

I

STEP 1

We’ll meet with your team to understand the goals and capture your vision.

 

5

STEP 2

We’ll work together to refine your wish lists, determine your needs, and prepare a strategy for your project.

5

STEP 3

We’ll create an RFP (request for proposal). This will often include a fully documented BOM (bill of materials) in preparation to take your project out for bid.

5

STEP 4

We’ll elect potential integration partners for the bid based on: proximity, budget, and the necessary expertise.

5

STEP 5

We’ll send out the RFP in a fully confidential manner. This is for accountability. Each candidate must bring their best to the table regardless of who the “Client” is.

5

STEP 6

We’ll help you as bids are received to: Decipher the documentation. Inspect each line. Understand the fees and fine print. And, ultimately determine which partner best fits your culture and requirements.

THE FINISH LINE

As you make your final decision (selecting an integration partner), we’ll bridge the relationship and form the alliance. After we award the bid, we’ll reveal your organization as the “Client,” and coordinate the transition toward executing the project. 

How do we define our Tiers?

How do we define our Tiers?

Tier 1 – Consultation  

Designed for troubleshooting, brainstorming, and interim maintenance in-between projects. Use this tier to have quick discussions about things you’re working on that don’t require equipment or integration.

 

Tier 2 – Consultation | Acquisition  

Use this tier if you’re planning to install yourself (plug and play), but need some help with engineering perspectives, as well as equipment acquisition. We’ll walk through the design with you, and then send out an RFP for competitive, dealer pricing.

Tier 3 – Consultation | Acquisition | Integration 

A Tier 3 project is one that requires full integration. It would include all of Tier 2, as well as selecting an integrator to execute the full installation.

Tier 4 – Project Management

This would include all of Tier 3, plus the additional layer that AV Coalition would help coordinate and manage the project through to completion. We become your “boots on the ground” all the way until you cut the ribbon.

Clients often ask…

Will I pay a higher premium from the integrator?

“Won’t the integrator(s) raise their rates to account for AV Co.’s percentage?” 

Not in our experience. 

The thing is, a COALITION works to form alliances that serve the need.

If your budget is set to a certain amount, each company is working with that goal in mind.

The only difference is, we’re working TOGETHER, rather than in competition.

We become a symphony for your masterpiece! 

The AV Coalition model serves organizations by advocating for, guiding, and protecting them through the process of integration. It serves integrators by offering them qualified opportunities for business (which saves on marketing/commissions and overhead).

For all parties, there’s less room for mis-understandings along the way.

It’s a WIN, WIN, WIN!
