4 Ways Turning AV into a Service Helps Your Company
What is AV as a Service, or AVaaS? AVaaS is turning the purchase and maintenance of a company's AV infrastructure into an expense item. Many corporations have sold corporate headquarters buildings and turned around and leased them back in long-term arrangements. Why? In many cases, highly valuable real estate generated large returns, but they didn't reflect in the company's valuation. They turned that investment into cash that could be reinvested in the company's products and services that are the core drivers of the business.
You could think about your company’s AV infrastructure the same way. Is your investment in video conferencing equipment and software, control systems, displays, digital signage, and other assets something that adds to your company's business value? Most likely not, as these investments depreciate over time and become obsolete in a few years as technology advances. This generates depreciation expenses, and while there may be tax benefits, there are also real cash outlays for maintenance and staffing to support these systems.
AVaaS is a way for a company to outsource AV and consume it as a service. With a predictable upfront startup cost and maintenance, a company can hire an expert AV integrator and avail itself of several advantages beyond the financial aspects, although it will also save money in the long run.
