The distributor has revealed expanded revenue-generating services for bandwidth, hotspot and security and a new partnership with Cattura Video
In the face of a global pandemic, Almo Professional A/V is equipping its partners with a distance learning plan comprised of Revenue Generating Connectivity Solutions, products and the preparation needed to be a valuable asset to educational institutions for the 2020/2021 school year and beyond.
Today’s educators are facing the start of a school year unlike any they’ve ever experienced and must be ready to create learning environments that are safe, socially-distant and potentially all online. To that end, Almo has expanded its service offering for bandwidth, hotspots and internet security to help integrators prepare schools for the best possible outcome. In addition, Almo has partnered with Cattura Video to provide CaptureCast lecture capture devices, which enable recording and live streaming while easing the technology burden for educators.
Register for the Almo webinar, “Distance Learning Preparedness” on July 31, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern to hear from an expert panel about some of the best AV equipment and technology for schools, teachers and students to ensure an effective learning experience.
“A majority of schools are starting the year with some type of distance-learning plan in place, whether its full-time, part of a hybrid model or as a back-up should a local outbreak occur,” explained Rob Voorhees, business development manager, CTNS at Almo Professional A/V. “Internet bandwidth is an essential service that schools and students will be relying on to bridge the learning gap between in-person and distance learning.”
Voorhees added, “All internet service sales through Almo provide a lifetime of recurring revenue to the integrator as well as peace-of-mind and added efficiency to the end user. We have the expertise to analyze a district’s current bandwidth then make recommendations for improvements, which can lead to considerable cost savings for that district or university. Almo also offers access to device security features to ensure hotspots are not being used maliciously, as well as a reporting and device management layer, which the schools will find essential.”
According to Rob Ziv, vice president of business development and strategy for Almo Professional A/V, “Rob Voorhees holds a Certified Telecommunications Networking Specialist (CTNS) designation, so integrators should feel confident knowing they are receiving an unbiased and consultative approach to every opportunity. Rob can help provide better insight and understanding to each job as we help customers define their needs and possible cost-savings measures.”
Ziv added, “The new partnership with Cattura Video is another way that Almo is giving integrators the distance learning tools their education customers need to bring the teaching environment to their students, either from the classroom or from home.”
