Integration Shouldn’t Be a One-Time Installation
4 Major Benefits of Integration as a Service
As technology continues to advance rapidly, businesses may find themselves replacing their AV systems every few years to keep up with modern demands—or be stuck with outdated solutions. If only there were a simpler way to update and expand…
There is—the “as-a-service” model applied to technology integration. Integration as a Service works like a subscription plan in which your provider integrates disparate systems and technologies, providing them as a working, on-demand service to your organization. IaaS includes systems monitoring and maintaining the infrastructure for you.
And just like phone plans allow customers to upgrade their smartphones every few years, IaaS is a convenient, simple way to outsource AV management. So rather than pay one time for an integration installation, you’ll pay a monthly subscription for much less of a hassle.
Here’s why Integration as a Service is worthwhile for your business.

Benefit 1: Program Management
With an IaaS plan, your company isn’t left to its own devices (literally and figuratively) if something goes wrong. Your integration service provider will ensure your technology systems are always working properly, as your subscription guarantees service and attention. Without a service plan, you could be left waiting on the phone to schedule an appointment, and who knows when the next technician will be available?
Benefit 2: Update to the Latest Technology
From conference room cameras to digital signage, your IaaS subscription provides on-demand access to the newest technologies for a predictable monthly fee. As smarter conferencing solutions roll out, you’ll be the first in line to upgrade. Your service provider will integrate the hardware, software, and infrastructure into a centralized system for simple control.
Benefit 3: The Convenience
Most of all, IaaS is incredibly convenient for your conferencing and AV needs. High-value systems and and organizations with limited infrastructure capabilities are prime candidates for IaaS. You can trust a third-party integrator to be accountable for integration delivery instead of your internal resources spread across multiple teams. If integration different platforms is not in your business’s expertise, it’s best to trust professionals that can provide the service reliably with stable monthly costs.
Benefit 4: Predictable Costs
When your server and device maintenance and technology support is bundled into a predictable monthly fee, your business can plan for expenses much more efficiently. You won’t be thrown off by any spikes in spending when it’s time to upgrade the boardroom audio. With IaaS, it’s already taken care of.
