LETTER FROM CEO AARON MCARDLE
“Trust the process” is a phrase that defines successful integrations, especially when it comes to installation. Truthfully, we feel it is one of the differences that separates good integrators from great ones.

At RoomReady, we’re proud of our proven process that leads to consistent experiences and happy customers: The RoomReady Way. This approach is designed to simplify your meeting rooms, accelerate your installation times and improve your overall meeting space success. By following this methodology, we’re able to remove unnecessary technology complexity from all meeting rooms. This allows us to create a consistent user experience across all meeting rooms, each and every time.

What makes The RoomReady Way unique? We take a flexible, consultative approach that allows us to:
  • Seamlessly integrate into your projects – meaning we’ll to do the entire project from start to finish or just part of it – depending on your needs
  • Deliver all the solutions you need without unnecessary extras
  • Assemble and test your rooms off-site
  • Provide fast installation that minimizes downtime and maximizes efficiency
  • Certify our work – 100% of the time
  • Offer ongoing maintenance to ensure meeting room optimization

I encourage you to learn more about The RoomReady Way and what it can do for your organization.

Sincerely,
Aaron McArdle
CEO, RoomReady

Have you ever tried navigating to a place you’ve never been? Odds are, without a GPS, directions, a map or your cellphone, you’re unlikely to arrive where you’re trying to go. The same thing can be said about your meeting room design and technology. You may have an idea of where you want to be, but don’t have the clear path to get you there…leading to a meeting room full of functional challenges and technical difficulties.
MEETING ROOM FACT OF THE MONTH

of meeting leaders say that a better meeting room experience is their primary goal when considering new technology.
As you think about your installation processes, make sure you are using the technology to create the desired experience for your customers.
