AMP Tech Consulting partners with Mvix to enhance digital signage adoption
in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sterling, VA. May 12, 2015: Mvix - an industry leader in HD digital signage solutions - has partnered with AMP Tech Consulting - Connecticut’s premier IT services provider - to enhance the adoption of digital signage in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. Current clients include the Suffield Chamber of Commerce and airport-related businesses in Hartford, CT.
Headquartered in Suffield CT, AMP Tech Consulting was founded in 2011. In just under 4 years, the company became the premier IT services provider in Connecticut and western Massachusetts, providing discrete IT services to both businesses and home users with speed, expertise, and personal attention.
AMP Tech Consulting credits their quick and massive growth to customized, one-on-one service. “Every one of our technicians is responsible for specific business units. This ensures that they fully understand the unique IT needs of that unit and are able develop a more personal relationship with the client,” said Andrew Preissner, AMP Tech Consulting’s President. This level of keen, white glove service and personal attention leads to word-of-mouth referrals, one of the powerful determinants of future company success.
The company first ventured into the world of digital signage when they were tasked with creating a digital community event display system for the Suffield Chamber of Commerce. The key requirement of the signage system was the ability to broadcast simultaneously to many screens while being serviced by one person. “We were looking for a system that was also easy to use and that could be managed remotely,” added Andrew, who is also the Suffield Chamber of Commerce President and Technology Committee Chair. Mvix’s solution, which includes free digital signage software and dozens of dynamic content widgets (e.g. Event Listings) perfectly met the project needs.
The Event Listings widget offers a quick and easy way to manage events on display screens. In 3 easy steps, the Suffield Chamber of Commerce is able to display events on the screen. “We first upload or add the URL for the CSV, XML or JSON file with the event listings, select a theme and voila! The event is displayed on the screen!” added Andrew. “We can also source events from Google Calendar! All we need to do is make the calendar public and have the ID handy.”
AMP Tech Consulting’s proximity to the airport also has them installing digital information boards and leveraging the airline flight status display boards to display live flight information such as airlines, arrivals, departures, flight number, flight status, flight time, and the gate. These screens in surrounding businesses such as car valets and hotels are very convenient and enhance the customer experience by keeping them aware of when their flights are arriving, departing and where they need to be. “They also create new revenue opportunities for the businesses when they sell ad space and promote other airport or hotel services,“ said Andrew.
The Suffield Chamber of Commerce digital signage project launched in November 2013. Andrew and his team reviewed several providers and Mvix’s easy to use, easy to navigate and budget-conscious system stood out. Mvix also came highly recommended by one of their partners who had previous experience with them. “We couldn’t be happier! The Mvix digital events displays ensure that the event content is unique and engaging, and can be updated with unprecedented ease and up-to-the-minute capability,” added Andrew.
AMP Tech Consulting has now added digital signage to their growing portfolio of premium IT services. After a month of planning and training to understand the workings of the digital signagesystems, Andrew and his team now launch digital signage display systems regularly. “The Mvix technical team has done an outstanding job helping us implement and troubleshoot the units,” said Andrew. “Economically, the systems have outperformed competitor solutions with similar features! We are very appreciative of the fact that they do not charge a month-to-month fee to use the web-based CMS!”.
“AMP Tech Consulting is the embodiment of white glove service and a role-model of partnership,” said Mike Kilian, the Mvix Director of Business Development. “Their consultative approach with clients makes them an ideal partner and we’re glad to partner with them to ensure that their clients’ digital signage needs are fully met.”
