Almo Professional A/V has become one of the go-to names in AV distribution largely because of its ability to distribute thousands of boxes from hundreds of companies who are all in the business of creating memorable AV experiences.
So, perhaps you’re surprised to learn Almo is launching a new initiative it calls “Nobox,” an AV services suite for integrators that’s “designed to expand your capabilities and impact your bottom line,” according to the company announcement.
“We sell a lot of products and we do that well,” says VP of marketing Melody Craigmyle.
“But we’ve been talking a lot about growth through AV services, such as recurring revenue and service contracts. Nobox is a way of empowering growth beyond products. Everyone knows the margins on products are getting thinner. You can’t just offer boxes.”
Almo Nobox AV Services Include:
- Almo network laborers, programmers, designers and technicians who are focused on improving business communications
- digital signage content creation and hosting
- control systems and DSP programming
- labor and project support
- service and repair plans
- hosted surveillance and security
- remote asset monitoring
“It can sometimes be prohibitive for dealers to make that pivot,” says Craigmyle. “This is a way for integrators to expand the relationships with their customers.”
Because Almo is part of a billion-dollar company, they have the ability to extend credit to integrators who are looking to launch a recurring revenue model, says Craigmyle. And Nobox isn’t restricted only to our dealers, she says. Officials can craft custom packages based on an integrator’s needs, says Craigmyle.
“This can truly be the starting point for a lot of integrators,” she says.
