After years as AV programmers, we’ve developed many advanced procedures that allow us to successfully manage and deliver your projects in a timely fashion. Key to us is ultimately that you are happy that your project is what your customer wants, what you want, and is to budget.
There are some key processes assist us in this.
- It would be true to say that we are pretty fanatical about GUIs. In a controlled AV environment, you could have the best install and workmanship in the country; but if the GUI – and therefore intuitivity – doesn’t work, then the entire job standard is lowered. We have access to advanced graphics and approaches, and can work with your brand & ideas to deliver the look and feel you need. Put us in touch with your branding team or send us what you have. Even if you have nothing, we can use your web or print presence as a basis....
- Of course the GUI only tells part of the story. Once the front end is right, it is critical that the system is able to deliver on your control inputs. We’ve all likely been in the position where we have used or demonstrated and something has not worked (usually when the CEO is in town). The vast majority of our control modules are written in-house, and those that are not are thoroughly tested and signed off in our own sandbox environment before they go near any of our software or systems. In short, our stuff pretty much works first time: handy when your deadlines are tight and the heat is on....
- We know our stuff – and so when it comes to the stage where we are needed on site, we’re equipped with all of the mental and physical tools in order to assist in getting the job in and finished. Whether that means working double shifts with the team to get you to meet your next milestone, or changing things on the fly to suit a client variation at the last gasp, we’ll always be doing it with your deadlines clearly in focus. It is true to say that if variations are large and complex, additional orders may be needed, but we will work with you to get what is needed to be done, done....
- At final completion, you’ll receive a copy of your source code in your own cloud based drive that we will invite you to. If you need a disc too, we can do that. Our code is usually pretty spot on, but should a bug crop up, we’re happy to reattend for free to put it right. Of course we would prefer to stay as your programmer for that system, so if you’re happy, call us as the system changes during it’s lifetime and we’ll support it in terms of code upgrades and updates. Moving forward, we can monitor and maintain your system software remotely if required; let us know if you need a demonstration....
What we do
We’re primarily programmers. All we need from you is a design, some dates, a brief, and an idea of who the end user is, and we can go from there. We’re fairly autonomous once the order is received, and can liaise directly with all parties if needed.
How we do it
We’ve been around for long enough to recognise how a system should work, and how users would expect it to work. We’ll draw on that experience as well as our technical expertise to make it happen. Should the system be unusual, a workshop is generally all that’s needed to get everyone on the same page.
What’s the price
Nearly all projects are on a fixed price basis, allowing you to plan your budget and your timescales in advance. Programming methods can be tweaked, so if you are comfortable, let us know your budget and we’ll do our best to better it.
