How AV Firms Take Control with Cloud ERP


Whether your specialty is residential or commercial, if you install network and structured cabling, your company has very specialized requirements when it comes to business software. Few solutions today are built for your unique needs, and even fewer have proven successes. If you’re tired of using a patchwork set of applications to manage core accounting, field service, CRM, and more, we invite you to learn from your AV industry peers who have already fought the battle and won.

Challenges and Opportunities for AV Companies

Too often, companies like yours will rely on entry-level accounting solutions for too long or push the capabilities of legacy ERP systems beyond their useful bounds, resulting in a lack of visibility, control, or speed. With so many moving parts, many AV systems integration firms have been forced to build patchwork ‘systems’ of disparate applications, relying on spreadsheets and manipulation to connect this stack of tools.

Luckily, there’s a better way.

For Audio and Visual companies, who need a unique balance of distribution and inventory management, contract and professional services management and field service management, it’s not only rare to find a product that can tackle each need with ease, it’s even rarer to find a partner that has experience working with companies like yours. On Thursday, November 29 Cloud 9 ERP Solutions will present a webinar discussing how one leader in AV and IT Systems took control of their financials with Acumatica Cloud ERP.
