Earlier this month, CI reported that Integrated Audio Systems became the 50th company to earn InfoComm International’s highest honor as a member of the AV Provider of Excellence (APEx) program.
According to APEx guidlines, APEx companies “must demonstrate a high level of service quality and technical capability by building a team of Certified Technology Specialists (CTS), adhere to InfoComm standards and prove ongoing customer satisfaction.”
The group of APEx companies have been growing steadily in the past six months.
“The APEx program was created to distinguish AV integration companies that are championing industry quality through professionalism and customer service. Congratulations to Integrated Audio Systems for joining this elite group,” said InfoComm senior VP of member services Betsy Jaffe.
Jeremy Caldera, IAS VP of technology and operations led the initiative for his new company to gain APEx designation.
“I’m excited to see so many companies embracing the APEx program,” Caldera said in the announcement. “Along with all of our employees at IAS, I feel that providing a quality product and service to our clients is priority one, so we are honored to be the 50th APEx company.”
