April 20, 2013

Pearl River, NY – April 20, 2013 – USIS AudioVisual Systems has qualified as an InfoComm International Diamond Certified AudioVisual Solutions Provider (CAVSP). This designation signifies that greater than fifty percent of USIS’ Sales, Customer Service and Technical Staff have now achieved general InfoComm Certifications. In addition, over fifteen percent have attained advanced InfoComm Certifications.

InfoComm awards individual Certification to audiovisual professionals who have demonstrated knowledge and comprehension of the science and technology used in communications including audio, video, display and systems. Technicians, engineers, designers, salespeople, customer service personnel, managers and executives are eligible to take the individual certification test.

“A CAVSP designation gives AV companies a competitive advantage in the marketplace,” said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, InfoComm International’s Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer. “Customers of audiovisual communications and presentation systems can be confident of professionalism and an aspiration to excellence when working with these companies that have invested in education and training to stay current on the latest AV technologies and techniques.”

“At USIS, we have a tradition of providing our customers with a well educated and well trained workforce,” said Todd Hutchins, USIS’ Chief Technology Officer. “From our long history of BICSI certifications in our Structured Cabling practice, to our AudioVisual team’s InfoComm Diamond endorsement, USIS’ number one priority continues to be the education of our team members. We believe this demonstrates our commitment to quality in everything we do.”

The company-level CAVSP recognition program is the only such program available for the commercial audiovisual industry. In addition to confirming that a percentage of the company’s employees are InfoComm certified, the Diamond CAVSP designation means that USIS AudioVisual Systems has agreed to comply with 10 Standards of Excellence developed in collaboration with industry experts to emphasize the best practices of audiovisual businesses, and has completed an Audiovisual Systems Performance Verification Checklist for one AV installation.

The Standards of Excellence are a guidepost for audiovisual companies and professionals who place the customer first and offer quality audiovisual solutions. They include the commitment to provide complete customer satisfaction with audiovisual solutions that provide value to the client. They convey the importance that audiovisual solutions providers place on their own skills development through continuing education. They also cover the critical role that audiovisual professionals play as partners with IT specialists, architects, building managers and others.
