For Immediate Release
EDMONTON Alberta, July 26, 2019 – Genesis Integration Inc has qualified as an AVIXA AV Provider of Excellence, or APEx. 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.
The AVIXA APEx program recognizes companies based on the number of employees holding key industry certifications, including AVIXA’s CTS credential, completion of continuing education classes, and positive customer survey responses. APEx providers must also prove that they meet or exceed the requirements within 2 ANSI/INFOCOMM standards, the Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes and the AV System Performance Verification Standard, to foster better communication between the AV provider and the client.
“The APEx designation gives AV companies a mark of distinction in the marketplace,” said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, AVIXA’s Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer. “Customers of APEx companies can be confident of the AV provider’s professionalism and commitment to ongoing training, customer service and dedication to excellence.”
“At Genesis, we have always talked from the beginning about one of our unique differentiators being our focus on operational excellence supported by industry based standards,” said Andrew Turner, Genesis Integration CEO. “Now, we are very proud to announce that we have achieved one of the biggest goals we had set as a company. Being one of two companies in Canada to be APEx certified is an amazing thing and we will wear this designation as a badge of honour,” Turner added. “Being granted this certification is validation that the framework and structure Genesis has put in place supports our commitment to improved operations and client experience. I would like to thank everyone who helped make this happen.”
