Control Concepts Development AMX RMS with Accruent EMS Solutions

Seamless Scheduling Management Matches AV Design, User Needs and Technology Professional Demands

Fair Lawn, NJ—February 26, 2016 Led by lead developer Jeff Mackie, the Control Concepts Development Team created middleware solutions that improve productivity for a high traffic facility and its technology managers, and enhance usability for employees and conference attendees.

Ian Gottesman, Chief Information Officer for a strategic non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., says that the middleware by Control Concepts changed his organization’s ability to manage its facility by allowing users to manage self-check-in independently for private office spaces, small meeting rooms and huddle spaces.

For a facility that houses over thirty rooms and large conference spaces that host multiple events throughout the year, with attendance that can exceed 80,000 users at a time, the ability to self-manage check-in and other features saves time, money and effort.

According to the Chief Information Officer, the organization has been using Accruent EMS Solutions for “more than twelve years.”  For a new building, middleware developed by Control Concepts made the new AMX systems and new touchpanels the organization purchased “super easy to use.”  AMX “referred the organization to Control Concepts and donated consulting time to assist with the design.”

Of Jeff Mackie and the Control Concepts team, Gottesman says the work they provided “meets or exceeds our basic needs.”  Of the Control Concepts middleware development process, he says “the workflow works really well.”  Gottesman points to the value of middleware for organizations like his that host multiple events in a year to thousands of users with a variety skillsets and expectations: “our conferencing staff like it because less burden on them.”  For Gottesman and his team, Control Concepts middleware “simplifies life and saves time.”
