RICHARDSON, Texas – March 3, 2010 – AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced the launch of its Education Alliance program. Administrators and information technology executives in higher education will now have direct access to the company through the program, which will serve as a valuable resource for consultative services and customer support.
Available to new and existing college and university customers of AMX, the Education Alliance program will enable members to make more informed purchase decisions, delivering time savings and cost-effectiveness now and moving forward. Benefits of the program include a personal AMX account manager, design services, training, and access to technical documents. Members will also be automatically enrolled in a reward program where points can be used toward purchasing new equipment and travel.
"This new initiative is an extension of AMX's history of success and ongoing commitment to higher education and the continued goal to simplify business decisions for our customers," says Michael Peveler, Vice President of Education Sales of AMX. "We of course remain committed to using our outstanding network of integrators to support higher education customers and will continue to partner with these dealers on all projects, including those generated through the Education Alliance program."
AMX has an extensive track record of successful solutions developed for customers in the higher education market stretching back more than 20 years. These include installations at Ivy League schools, world-class universities and smaller private and local colleges.
As Tim O'Rourke, Temple University's Vice President of Computer and Information Services, explains, "One of the benefits that AMX brought to us was its system design and programming expertise. We knew which technologies we wanted in each room, but we didn't know how to integrate these technologies in a way that would be user friendly. AMX helped us design and integrate our systems in such a way that every faculty member, including those who are not as tech-savvy, can use computers, DVD players, document cameras and flat panel displays to enhance the learning process, which is of course our ultimate goal."
AMX offers integrated hardware and software solutions for higher education in four broad categories; room automation solutions for classrooms and meeting rooms; building and campus management solutions; digital signage solutions, to distribute information to students, faculty, staff and visitors; and video content management solutions, for broadcast, on demand video distribution and capture.
