LETTER FROM CEO AARON MCARDLE
All partners and integrators have their trusted processes. But what happens when these processes collide during a joint project? And, more importantly, what impact does this have on the end users’ results?

At RoomReady, while we always prepare for the “whole enchilada,” the truth is we’re often asked to fill in based on our partners’ specific needs. Just a meeting room design? Check. A re-certification? Happy to help. The list goes on.

So how do we overcome the process collision? Simple. Our goal is to smoothly integrate ourselves into your process where, when and how you need us. We know that your customers’ trust you, so we want to be there to support you and make you look like the hero.
Remember, integrators should make projects easier, not more complex. So focus on working with those that are flexible and accommodating to your project and process needs.

Sincerely,
Aaron McArdle
CEO, RoomReady

When and Where You Need Us: The Importance of a Flexible Integrator
In an ideal world, integrators kick off a project from the start and see it through to the end. But the reality is, this doesn’t always happen. Projects start out strong but then hit pause for a number of reasons. Business priorities change. Dollars are reallocated. Project sponsors leave. The list goes on.

While most integrators provide full end-to-end solutions, customers often want the flexibility to work with integrators on just one or two aspects of an overall project. For integrators, this creates unique opportunities, but also challenges.
