Kinly has been recognised as Global APEx (AV Provider of Excellence), certified for its commitment to delivering industry excellence. The AVIXA APEx program is a recognition program for integration companies and AV design consulting firms dedicated to upholding industry excellence by providing quality service to customers.
To qualify for the APEx certification companies are evaluated on several criteria, including the number of employees holding key industry certifications, including AVIXA’s CTS credential (15% of total employees must be CTS certified); and the completion of ongoing training as well as positive customer feedback. To foster better communication between the AV provider and the client, APEx providers must also prove that they meet or exceed the requirements within two ANSI/INFOCOMM standards: Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes; AV System Performance Verification Standard
“The APEx designation gives AV companies a mark of distinction in the marketplace,” said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, AVIXA’s executive director and CEO. “Customers of APEx companies can be confident of the AV provider’s professionalism and commitment to ongoing training, customer service and dedication to excellence.”
Justin Paveley, engineering director, Kinly, added: “I’m delighted that we have retained our Global APEx status for a third year in a row, and for the first time as Kinly. Achieving the APEx distinction is important to us as it demonstrates our commitment to our clients, the investment and development of our employees, and our passion to staying ahead of the curve in an ever-changing industry.”
Ben Barnard, Regional Manager, UK & Ireland, AVIXA concluded: “Justin and the team at Kinly continue to demonstrate what it means to be a trusted and quality-assured supplier of integrated systems in the AV industry, through support of AVIXA’s CTS program and now through its attainment of the APEx accreditation for the third time running. Their enthusiasm for the program is truly inspiring and a great example of their pledge to the industry.”
