5 Reasons Why Government Agencies Trust AVI Systems

Government July 10, 2024

When you sit down with a government IT director or KO, they’ll be able to tell immediately whether you understand their unique needs and are up to the task. These professionals need AV partners who not only have technical expertise but also know how to navigate complex organizational structures and strictly adhere to regulations and audit requirements.  

AVI Systems is proud of the reputation we’ve earned among our government agency clients. Our goal is to continue earning their trust and to become known as the go-to partner for agencies upgrading their audiovisual tools for the modern workplace.  

If you’re considering an AV partner for your government agency, here are five things you should know about AVI Systems.

#1: Our Federal Markets team has more than 100 combined years of experience

While AVI has worked with federal agencies for years, demand has grown significantly in the last five years. So, we expanded our delivery and support capabilities to meet your requirements. Our Federal Markets team is comprised of four veteran leaders with more than 100 combined years of experience working with federal agencies: 

  • Jeremy Button, Director of Federal Markets (served in the Army) 
  • Chuck Westphal, Business Development Manager (supports the Navy, Marine Corp, and Space Force) 
  • Robert Birch, Business Development Manager (supports the Army, Airforce, and Department of Defense)  
  • Jonathan Kim, Business Development Manager, Civilian Agencies 

From RFP to kickoff and from procurement to commissioning, this team knows how to transact with governmental agencies and what audiovisual solutions work well on government networks.

#2: The Federal Team at AVI is backed by years of practice expertise

Our Federal Team is supported by the deep expertise AVI has across our six practice areas:

  • Audiovisual 
  • Broadcast 
  • Digital Media 
  • Unified Collaboration 
  • Microsoft 
  • Managed Services 

Our practice area leaders and subject matter experts work within consistent teams to ensure that every solution is well-engineered and integrated. More importantly, the practice areas offer a clear line of sight that fosters accountability and ensures projects stay on track.  

#3: AVI has a proven process

AVI Systems follows a four-step planning process and established methodology for every implementation. This not only helps government agencies know what to expect, but it also ensures better communication throughout the process and streamlines project delivery.

  • Pro Development – we understand what you expect  
  • Pro Design – we recommend the solutions that meet your objectives  
  • Pro Integration – we design the solution and provide integration services  
  • Pro Support – we deploy a comprehensive managed services plan

Our approach is based on tested, in-the-field best practices and provides the level of consistency and repeatability government agencies expect and require.

#4: AVI has created a custom GSA schedule

Our custom GSA schedule means we have solutions that are ready to go that use only approved products. For example, our Velocity solution is a full meeting room package under one SKU that includes Logi or Poly platforms, displays and furniture.  

What’s more, our Velocity Logistics Center (VLC) streamlines the ordering and deployment process, allowing us to deliver these meeting room solutions with speed and efficiency. 

Government agencies can choose from a variety of pre-configured Velocity Certified solutions ranging from meeting rooms and workspaces to digital signage solutions. In addition, Velocity Certification can be completed using your unique standards, allowing systems to be available on-demand with consistent pricing. 

Finally, our VLC employs experienced AV experts as well as Six Sigma/Lean global logistics experts who value and prioritize efficiency.

#5: AVI’s consulting practice, Magenium, is a Microsoft Solutions Partner

Plenty of AV companies can sell you a Microsoft Teams room solution, but no other company has the expertise and experience that our consulting practice, Magenium has.  

Magenium is an award-winning Microsoft Solutions Partner that has built and maintained its reputation as the best partner for organizations and agencies that want to adopt the latest Microsoft solutions. The Magenium team has deep expertise across Microsoft’s Modern Workplace suite of applications, which includes Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive, Exchange, and other solutions that enable better collaboration and productivity.  

This expertise can be especially helpful for government agencies that require unified collaboration tools but don’t have existing relationships with Microsoft to get the implementation support they need.
