USAV (Denver CO), an association of professional audiovisual integrators, added seven new members in the first half of 2014. Of those, Cibola Systems and Bridges Systems Integration will be participating as part of the USAV integration services group. The remaining five companies will be part of the USAV buying group.
USAV supports two levels of membership: The USAV buying group provides preferred pricing and rebates for members buying product from USAV Preferred Manufacturer Partners. The integration services group provides the same purchasing power, and also gives members the opportunity to participate in conferences and meetings where USAV integration companies collaborate on business strategy, best practices and market dominance.
Cibola Systems, headquartered in Orange CA, provides AV consulting and systems integration services for high-performance teams in corporate, nonprofit, and government organizations. With thousands of successful projects since 1971, the firm is widely recognized for its ability to solve complex communication challenges. Cibola has developed a unique, people-centered approach that fuses human factors and organizational science with digital technology.
Bridges System Integration, headquartered just outside of the Washington DC metro area, is a veteran-owned small business launched in 2010. It focuses on leveraging collaborative technologies in new ways to deliver exceptional results for its clients.
“Lisa Perrine [Cibola CEO] and Brent Berger [Bridges Partner] are strong leaders who run notable integration firms in their respective geographical areas, and I am confident they will bring valuable insight to our group,” said USAV CEO KC Schwarz.
“It is exciting to see USAV continue to expand,” said Jay Myers, President of Interactive Solutions and Chairman of the USAV Dealer Advisory Council. “The depth of knowledge and experience in this group is phenomenal and one of the most beneficial parts of being involved with USAV. Each new integrator comes from a different background and brings new perspectives to the table, which helps make collaboration within the group even more valuable. ”
In addition to Cibola Systems and Bridges System Integration, the other new USAV buying group members are Hoppmann Audio Visual in Chantilly VA; SybaTek in Irving CA; ParallelTek in Santa Fe Springs CA; Onsite AV Service Partners in Austin TX, and SVT in Brighton MI.
