For Consultants and Architects
You take pride in offering rock-solid designs. So do we...
Everyone has their specialties. If yours don’t happen to include touchpanel interface design, we’ll forgive you — as long as you don’t ask us to design a speaker array or draw up plumbing specs for a high-rise building.
What we can do is help you add a basic interface layout to your bid packages, so the winning bidder works from a layout that's already client-approved. Or, if you prefer a little more risk, you could always give the winning bidder a blank slate and see what happens.
We’re also happy to help with hardware specification. Whatever it takes to make sure the end user knows what to expect, and then gets exactly that.
Some of our services for architects and consultants are even free of charge, so give us a call and we’ll help you make some magic!
For Systems Integrators
You get to focus on what you do best. We get to help you look good doing it...
Ever wished you had an employee who had the experience and training of a programmer, a user interface expert, and a graphic designer, but who only wanted a paycheck when you had enough work for him?

We understand you’ve got a lot to deal with as an integrator. From system design, to client management, to making sure every wire termination is rock-solid. Our specialty is making sure the programming and touchpanel designs make you look good – because you don’t need one more thing to worry about.
Give us a call. We’ll help you make some magic!
For Tech and Media Managers
You've got a lot invested in high-tech rooms. We've got a lot invested in
making them work perfectly…
Whether you're managing new projects or have existing systems that aren't Dashboard compliant, we can help make your life a little easier. That's because control systems that are well-programmed and designed for usability result in fewer help-desk calls.
Wondering how you can better manage the costs of service and maintenance? Crestron's Roomview software can help. Not only does it offer remote monitoring and management, but it can even make your facilities a little greener.
Welcome to the world of media systems that just work. Give us a call and we'll make sure they work like magic!
For Busy Programmers
We can help you get off the job-site before midnight…
It’s not much fun when you’re the guy who has to get everything working in the end while the others have already called it a day. We’ve been there too, so we decided to come up with a better way to help those programmers who happen to work directly for an integrator.
How about if you do what you do best, and we’ll fill in the rest? It sounds a little crazy, but it just might work. We’re really good at designing custom touchpanel interfaces (the part that probably takes you way too much time). You’re familiar with the AV systems and can troubleshoot with the best of ‘em.
So we'll design the touchpanels, then setup all the join numbers and start the SIMPL Windows program for you. By the time we pass it off to you, the touchpanels will be fully interactive and the only thing left for you to do is insert the device modules and write the logic around them. You’ll still have some real work to do, but the project will be much more manageable.
Depending on how busy you are, we can just keep going and write the entire program for you. Then we’ll pass it to you to handle the on-site testing. Your boss may be impressed at how many more projects can be completed, but the real key is that you're not programming on a five-gallon bucket in an equipment closet at midnight.
For Tired, Old Interfaces
Don't let a poor interface design make you look bad...
We’ve all seen those interfaces that just make you cringe. You wonder how someone could invest so much in a great system and end up with graphics that bad. But the problem is usually deeper than just graphics – a poorly designed interface can make the system difficult to operate, too. Or maybe your interfaces aren't quite that bad, but they still aren't measuring up to the quality of the rest of the work. We have two solutions for you, depending on your needs and your budget…
The simplest solution is to re-skin the existing interface. Just send us the VTPro files, and we’ll make ‘em look great! We’ll replace all of the graphics without touching the join numbers, so the program won’t have to be changed at all.
For interfaces that need more attention, we offer user-experience consulting to evaluate your current interfaces in terms of usability. Or we can just start from a blank slate and take you through our standard user-experience design process. We’ll think through the system functionality and the typical user-profile to design a new interface that really sings. The control system program will have to be updated, but the end-result will be well worth it!
