  • Savant Offers More Insight Into Changes

    November 17, 2016

    Rumors have been circulating a bit since Savant sent out an email to dealers explaining the changes to the structure of its sales team across the U.S. Some have speculated that the return of founder and chairman of the board Bob Madonna to CEO and the departure of William Lynch from that role may be a reaction to the seemingly tepid sales of the consumer-oriented Savant Remote, and that the c...

  • Can’t Keep Up with IoT? There’s a New Resource

    August 05, 2016

    In talking to Nicos Panteli, the co-founder and developer of Qioto, the website with the tagline “Discover Smart Home Solutions,” I felt like I was talking to any number of smart, engaging members of the CEDIA integrator (“technologist”) community. Panteli told me that he’s a professional integrator, who because of the size o...

  • Crestron’s CEO Clarifies CEDIA Decision: ‘We Don't Belong There Anymore’

    February 12, 2016

    Crestron’s president and CEO Randy Klein emphasized that his decision was based on the realization that CEDIA has become a broader show and that Crestron only wants to focus on the high-end part of the market.

  • Allnet Makes AV Distribution More Personal in Indiana

    January 13, 2016

    On the day I began my holiday vacation last month, I attended the grand opening of a local rep/distributor located only 10 minutes from my house in the Indianapolis suburb of Carmel, IN. The visit gave me a rare chance at a local story and provided me with a surprise Christmas present in the form of one of the distributor’s unique product lines.

  • For Azione Members Business is Good and Change is Coming

    March 19, 2015

    The custom install channel is right in the middle of buying group season. ProSource took place at the beginning of March, HTSA will be held in Nashville in mid April, and I just returned from the well-attended Spring Soiree in Nashville, hosted by Azione Unlimited, a buying group that seems to be hitting its stride.

  • ProSource Summit Focuses Its Members Toward Premium Offerings

    March 05, 2015

    The ProSource Summit buying group meeting kicked off in unique fashion this week at Marriot’s World Center in Orlando. The business message? Each individual within a company adds value that others in that group don’t provide. It also proved an effective way to engage the audience in the morning presentations and set the tone for the conference.

  • Register Today for the CEDIA Business Xchange Conference

    February 11, 2015

    Admittedly I’m biased about this, but you really need to register for CEDIA’s Business Xchange Conference today. Until I volunteered to serve on the planning committee for this first-time event, I had no idea how much time, energy, and passion went into such an endeavor.
