Consult Slim 01

Byond Consult

We’ve never been fans of ‘one size fits all’ solutions. Every company and every team is different with unique needs and priorities. During the consultation phase, we’ll spend time getting to know you, your team and your customers. We want to get a solid understanding of how your AV solutions will support your long-term business goals and make sure we deliver exactly what you need in order to achieve those goals.

What's involved in the consultation phase?

1. Needs analysis

What really matters to you and your people? What are the key challenges? What does your current workflow look like and how does technology support it? At this stage it’s important that we get right under the bonnet of your business or organisation so we can make sure we’re delivering AV solutions that will really drive your business forward.

2. Conceptual designs

Once we’re confident that we’ve asked all the right questions and got a solid understanding of where the gaps in your strategy are and how we can bridge them, we’ll move on to strategic design. This will give you a visual representation of what’s involved and a road map of how we plan to get there. We’ll also look at the practicalities and logistics for delivery.

ROI & TCO calculations

ROI is usually the first thing budget holders will ask about – and rightly so. Our detailed ROI and TCO calculations will help everyone to understand the costs involved in the project, explaining why the investment is a sound one and how it will benefit the business going forward.

Getting under the bonnet of your business or organisation.

The most successful projects are always those where we’ve had the time to do an in-depth consultation. We will ask lots of questions – but only because we want to deliver the best possible outcomes for you. Here’s a bit more information on what we’ll dive into and why it really matters.

Communication - internal and external

How will your AV strategy allow your team to communicate and collaborate effectively? How will it support their wellbeing and allow them to be the best they can be in their individual roles and as part of the wider team.

What has been working well so far? Are there tools or platforms in existence already that we can enhance and improve upon or are we starting from the ground up? Maybe, like so many companies across the world, you had to get an AV solution in place quickly when the pandemic hit and now you’re realising it really isn’t fit for purpose.

Whatever your situation, we’re here to help. Think of us as your partners in this process. We’re here to advise and put our decades of experience to work designing the best possible solution for your business.

Plans for growth

AV solutions are an investment for any business. We want to make sure that whatever we design and deliver for you can evolve over time as your business grows and your needs change. Put the necessary time and thought into the planning at this stage and it will save you a lot of cash further down the line.

Current user adoption & tech savviness of your team

We can design and deliver AV solutions that feature cutting-edge technology and the very latest software from the leading providers in the industry. However – the latest tech is no good to you if your team doesn’t use it. Before we start putting a strategy together, we’ll find out what current user adoption levels look like and get a solid understanding of what might be preventing your team from making the most of the technology available to them.

We’re passionate about the role technology can play in helping people fulfil their potential and succeed in their roles so we offer world-class user adoption training to ensure that everyone understands how our AV solutions can support them.
