Project Crew Multiplier (PCM) and Exertis Almo announced a partnership for service delivery. Exertis Almo will offer third-party professional services from the PCM Network to its Professional AV reseller and integrator partners. The PCM Network includes Crew Network Providers (CNPs) that offer project labor and installation, drafting, programming, training, staffing, rack builds, logistics and staging, and supplemental labor services nationwide.
Sam Taylor, EVP/COO of Exertis Almo explained, “Partnering with PCM allows us to offer a greater variety of services and to work with many of the top providers in the industry. The Exertis Almo service program is one of our fastest growing and is being leveraged more and more by our Pro AV resellers and integrators across the country.”
The use of third-party resources continues to soar in popularity. Businesses are extending their reach and planning projects with outsourced providers in mind. Outsourced services give businesses next-level capabilities. The partnership between Exertis Almo and PCM is positioned to bring that to the AV industry. As the first distributor to access the PCM Network, Exertis Almo will be able to increase its current service offerings in footprint and capabilities, along with the guidance and support of PCM.
“Exertis Almo’s dedication to education and training in the Pro AV Industry is essential to this partnership,” said Chris Whitley, CEO of PCM. He also noted, “Best practice sharing, education, and training is a fundamental tenant of PCM for its CNPs. This partnership is perfect for the delivery of services nationwide to the Pro AV industry and will promote continued operational excellence through collaboration with PCM.”
The ever-increasing need to offer additional services, and extend the reach of delivery, combined with rising costs and challenges of employee retention makes B2B service providers more valuable than ever. The PCM / Exertis Almo partnership is another clear indication that service delivery continues to be a critical piece of the next generation of the AV industry
