AVaaS is a consumption model of AV hardware, software and services on a recurring bases. Organizations no longer must take the risk of owning expensive depreciating assets that are locally managed. AVaaS enables organizations to make less capital-intensive purchases, can help consolidate multiple manufacturer AV equipment leases and provide managed services of your AV. Organizations can stop purchasing expensive initial hardware purchases and taxes. AVaaS provides a purchase service option that will be recognized on your balance sheet as an operational expense without having to pay taxes on assets.
Service & Lease Management
As part of the service, Netrix provides design and installation, software, cloud, remote network monitoring and system management services. Organizations also receive equipment leasing, get upgrades and maintenance and support that aligns with manufacturer’s SLAs. Through Netrix, you can aggregate and manage all manufacturer contracts into a single contract with flexible end terms and refresh cycles, underwritten through the Netrix internal capital group.

Changing the AV Landscape
Traditionally, purchasing AV meant making a large upfront investment, hiring a firm to install everything, and then simply having them hand it off to your IT department for management. Your IT staff may have managed anything from troubleshooting to setting up meeting requests.
As business culture continues to change and organizations allow more employees to work outside of the office, the successful deployment and use of integrated collaboration technologies from AV and unified communication technologies become much more vital as operational and management efficiencies rely heavily on them.
Increased IT Spend
As IT costs increase and IT continues to find its way across departments within an organization, the need for integrated AV solutions that are more reliable, simple to use, and managed by third party experts has become the baseline for both meeting efficiency and reduced IT spend. This means less headaches for your organization.
Save money upfront on hardware through a move from a capital expense to an operational expense. Provide ongoing managed services on hardware and software which includes maintenance and monitoring. Receive the refresh cycles on the latest AV update and upgrades for new and improved technologies.

Why Do Meetings Always Seem to Start Late?
Time Spent in Meetings
According to CIO Insight Magazine, on average, senior executives spend more than two days a week in meetings with at least three employees. This means that at least 40% of time is spent in meetings with four or more people each week. In addition, a meeting that starts just 5 minutes late costs an organization 8% of that overall meeting time.
Meetings that Start Late
Harvard Business Review created a study on how late and how often meetings started behind schedule. In this two week study, HBR found that only 10% of the meetings started on time and on average, 90% of late meetings started at least 12 minutes behind schedule.
Blame "Technical Difficulty"
Blame "Software Downloads to Join"
Blame "Don't Know How To Join"
Warehouse Research completed a study to find out why conference calls and online meetings were starting so late. Their research found that technical difficulty, software downloads to join and a lack of user knowledge on how to join were the three most significant culprits for late meetings.
The Netrix Difference

Any troubleshooting that may be required can be handled by our expert team promptly and reliably.
