Ahead of ISE, XTEN-AV, which made its debut at last year’s show, has announced the platform’s strategic alliances with Legrand, QSC and Ricoh Europe.
These alliances meet the objective of the XTEN-AV platform in achieving its vision of streamlining and transforming the AV design space with accurate information about new products that will help users immensely.
The collaboration with Legrand is expected to be a compelling value proposition for the AV design experience on the platform, by leveraging Legrand’s umbrella brands Middle Atlantic, Chief, Da-Lite, Vaddio, Luxul, C2G, Wiremold.
This means a broad array of product offerings, and seamless information flow to users, along with providing constant updates and product information for creating AV designs. A move that is expected to empower XTEN-AV users to achieve excellent client success ratios and minimize bid creation times, in collaboration with Legrand.
“We’re excited to be partnering with XTEN-AV and their design platform for AV
professionals,” said Marco Adriaans, Sr. Marketing Manager at Legrand in the EMEA region.
“Having the latest solutions from across the Legrand brands on their system will streamline AV system integration for their users.”
In a separate announcement, XTEN-AV has highlighted its partnership with QSC to streamline the flow of accurate information about new QSC products on the XTEN-AV platform. As part of this association, XTEN-AV and QSC will work in tandem to provide constant updates and product information to users of the platform for creating AV designs.
Vibhav Singh and Sahil Dhingra Co-Founders of XTEN-AV said, “The provision of accurate information from a prestigious brand like QSC and its solutions will help the XTEN-AV users immensely. In sharing comprehensive product specs and data from QSC and other manufacturers, we know XTEN-AV will drive more systems designers to migrate to these particular solutions.
Since XTEN-AV’s launch, we have received great feedback from multiple manufacturers about how the platform is bringing a higher efficiency in the industry.
This further validates our stance that capable software will bring tangible changes in the AV space.”
“At QSC, we are always looking for ways to help integrators streamline the design and installation process,” said Frank West, Senior Director of Sales, QSC Systems. “We are thrilled to partner with like-minded providers like XTEN-AV who use the software-based methodology to simplify the integration process and ultimately drive overall adoption.”
XTEN-AV has also announced its partnership with Ricoh Europe, to enable their system integration teams across Europe to initiate, create, design and win AV projects at scale and speed. In addition to being a prime user of the platform, Ricoh has also become a manufacturing partner of XTEN-AV, enabling the flow of updated, accurate data about their product and technology offerings.
“As a truly global workplace services provider, Ricoh’s vision is to empower digital workspaces by using innovative in-house and 3rd party technologies that enable our customers to work smarter.
Our collaboration with XTEN-AV, allows us the opportunity to work towards our digital strategy and simplify process as well as create stronger centralised governance.
The XTEN-AV suite also offers us an additional channel to introduce our own Ricoh products and technologies to the wider AV market,” said Jon Alessi, Head of Pre-Sales Design, Ricoh Europe.
XTEN-AV will demonstrate the various alliance product integration, on the platform, at the upcoming ISE 2020 show in Amsterdam at booth #7-N190.
