LETTER FROM AARON MCARDLE

 

With each passing day, it seems like we’re relying less and less on phone calls and messaging, preferring, instead, the face-to-face interaction that comes from a video call. It’s simply more personal.

As video conferencing solutions continue gaining popularity, we’re experiencing unseen growth ‒ not only in platform adoption, but also multiplatform use. While tools such as Webex remains the gold standard for enterprise video conferencing, we’re also seeing the growth of collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams and Zoom. The new reality is that organizations are no longer committing to a single solution but are relying upon a variety of platforms to fit different needs.

For A/V integrators, now is the time to embrace the age of tech-agnostic innovation and integration solutions and ensure we provide solutions for a variety of technology platforms. Let me be the first to welcome you to what I would like to call an age of opportunity!

Sincerely,
Aaron McArdle
CEO, RoomReady
