Successful businesses are built on trusting relationships, that establish community, fulfill needs, serve clients, and are inherently supportive throughout all phases of engagement.

Control Concepts is proud to announce that they have found that person with the addition of Brittany DiCesare.

The Essentiality of Support in Business Relationships

As the world continues to recover from the impact of the pandemic, individuals, businesses, and their clients are leaning on supportive relationships and genuine insight to regain their confidence and comfort.  More than ever people are weighing a company’s values, customer service, dedication, and care before making a commitment.  The days of alluring clients in the AV industry with catchy marketing and flashy products are in the past.  Everyone wants to know that if something goes awry the companies and products they have invested in will have their backs.  Before this differentiator can be client facing, it must start at home.

At Control Concepts, support is, and has been, valued and handled with the utmost care for as long as the company has existed.  Support is back-bone of how we improve ourselves and how we serve our clients best.

The internal culture of Control Concepts fosters these key items:

  1. Ask for guidance/assistance when you need it.
  2. Provide guidance/assistance when you can.
  3. You are not an individual to carry your professional burdens alone.
  4. We are a team that share professional burdens to succeed as a team.

Future-proofing Programming Starts with Architecting Device Control

How often does an AV system get designed, commissioned, and programmed, and then never touched again? The answer is: Not often!

AV systems must be adaptable to meet users’ changing needs. Starting with a “simple” design that meets current requirements, while keeping in mind the potential for future growth, always sounds like an effective strategy. But how often is future-proofing truly considered in today’s system design and programming?

The ability to take advantage of growth potential and ease of implementation highly depends not only on the physical installation and hardware design but also on the design of the control software that defines the system operation. There is a difference between programming a system with a sole focus on current needs and architecting software that has been built modularly with a vision for future growth and modification.
