Pakedge BakPak® Wins Commercial Integrator 2015 Best Award for Best Network Management Solution
BakPak offers many features that have simplified installation and management and helped provide Net-AV customers with peace of mind, according to Dawn Meade (CTS), an AV Nation Board Member and Director of Marketing at Net-AV.
"Over the past two years, we've been laying the necessary groundwork to make this transition a viable, profitable reality for the long-term growth of our company. Part of that groundwork was evaluating managed service offerings from various manufacturers to determine which products and offerings best fit our corporate philosophy and our clients' needs. One of the offerings we are including in our managed service product line is the Pakedge BakPak.
The dashboard, alert system, and customizable reporting allow us to give our clients useable metrics on their systems' performance and a means to see the value in our services. This visible ROI for customers makes selling additional managed services and recurring contracts much easier."
Pakedge Wins CE Pro Brand Leader Award 2015
"At Pakedge Device & Software, Inc. we take pride in engineering high performance network systems that simplify AV/IT convergence. We strive to bring peace of mind to our dealers and their installers, as well as Pakedge end users. All of our devices are made with enterprise grade components for superior performance and housed in high-quality housings to ensure durability. Our AV specific innovations and intelligent features combined with our dedication to operational simplicity produce devices that are easy to install and that our dealers can be proud of.
At Pakedge we advocate for a platform approach to networking. Today's AV networks are often overly complex and pieced together with hardware and software from various manufacturers. This results in tedious setup processes, functional redundancies, and reduced network efficiency. It also means having to manage updates, upgrades, interfaces, warranties, and support from multiple companies. The Pakedge Connect+ Platform eliminates these annoyances making installation and management easy while optimizing network performance with our feature-rich engineering. Connect+ devices and software work together as a platform to enable predictive networking that is seamlessly integrated to be highly-effective, secure, reliable, and scalable."
