The Home Technology Association (HTA) has announced the first annual “Best In The U.S.” Awards for residential integration firms. The HTA is excited to award the very best integrators in the country based on overall performance and quality.
The HTA Best In The U.S. awards has three tiers. Black is the highest award level, given to the firms that execute at the highest level the most technically and operationally challenging projects in their markets. The Platinum tier is awarded to companies with a proven history of excellence in delivering technically complex projects and providing excellent customer service. The third award tier, Gold, is awarded to companies that have a proven track record of technical proficiency and delivering outstanding experiences to consumers on simpler-scale projects.
While other awards or lists may be biased to the integrators who are larger and have more purchasing power, the HTA is focused only on quality and performance. A small integrator with a few employees has the same opportunity to achieve the highest award tier as a large firm with dozens of employees.
