What Is AVaaS?

Audio Video for the workplace is now offered as a subscription-based model. Instead of purchasing, managing, and maintaining your own Audio Video systems, you achieve the same AV utilization with 24/7 service and maintenance, getting your Audio Video Systems “as a service.” Philm Gear Audio Video as a service (AVaaS) provides speed, performance, security, easy user management, and access to all apps on any device.

The modern workplace demands audiovisual technology, and it doesn’t come cheap. Above and beyond the hardware costs, ownership also requires figuring out which “IT guy” will be responsible for it functioning successfully. A recent study by Harvard Business Review and WareHouse Research shows that 90% of all meetings are started 12 minutes late, usually as the result of technical difficulty, user error, or other issues we are now eliminating.

Our clients are pleased with how easy it is to adopt our AV Solutions for every user.

Purchasing vs. Renting AV Equipment

Video OperatorSo, you’re ready to get set up with some high-end AV equipment, but you’re not sure if renting or purchasing is the right way to go. That’s OK, we’ll walk you through the pros and cons of both to help you decide the best way to go.

Renting: This is a great choice if you’re looking for equipment that you’ll be using short term. For example: are you using it for a training seminar, a project, a show, or special event? Renting can provide you a lower investment as opposed to purchasing, especially if you’re only going to use the equipment for a short time. You can choose customized solutions that make it easy, and have what you need for that event, then return the equipment. Renting is also an excellent option if you’re looking to keep up with the latest technology. You can upgrade whenever, without committing to a purchase.

Purchasing: This option is a good choice for those looking for a more long-term use. If you plan to use your equipment often for presenting, meetings, advertising, etc. then buying is your ideal option. You won’t have to worry about rental costs, you’ll own your equipment, and you even have the option to sell it when you’re done with it. While, some companies would say that purchasing comes with cons like having to maintain it and do the research yourself, we’ll tell you otherwise.

Regardless if you’re renting or purchasing, we offer an array of services. We’ll make sure that you get the best value for your time and budget needs. Let us do the research for you. We also offer setup and maintenance, so all you have to do is focus on your job; we’ll do the rest.
