When looking for a Crestron programmer for a commercial or residential project, you may have noticed that there are several Crestron programming companies out there (like AVPA), as well as many freelance Crestron programmers.
The reason you’ll find so many independent Crestron programmers is most likely because programmers tend to prefer to work independently. They like the flexible schedule that freelance work affords them, and they like being able to work from home. Of course, we’re generalizing here. There are probably plenty of Crestron programmers who enjoy working as part of a team and having a predictable schedule and income, but in general, people are drawn to programming as a career because they enjoy working independently.
Just like in any profession, the quality of freelance Crestron programmers can run the gamut. You may find an independent contractor who is highly skilled and has experience working on all types of jobs, or you may get a programmer who is just starting out. It can often be hard to tell the level of experience a programmer has because many don’t have extensive websites that highlight their past work or go into great detail about their capabilities. In other words, you should ask a lot of questions of a freelance Crestron programmer before hiring one to make sure they can handle the type of project you have in mind.
Another option is to hire a Crestron programming company like AV Programming Associates.
Why Go with a Crestron Programming Company
The first reason to work with a Crestron programming company like AVPA, as opposed to just a freelance programmer, is because with us, you get an entire team, not just one person. This is important because every project is so specialized. It’s almost impossible for one person to be great at everything involved with smart home programming or commercial programming. On the AVPA team, we have a variety of experts who specialize in various aspects of programming. We’re sure to have someone on our team who is able to handle your specific project with expertise!
The second reason to work with AVPA is because our programmers have an extra layer of accountability and oversight due to being part of a company. Our company owner, Matt Grisafe, is a programmer himself and oversees every project we take on. He makes sure projects stay on schedule and helps troubleshoot any issues that come up.
Finally, not only do we have multiple programmers on our team, but we also have people who are dedicated to project management and customer service. As a company, we maintain excellent communication with our clients throughout their projects. We are also easy to get ahold of and very responsive, should our clients have questions or concerns at any time.
In general, having an entire team that’s dedicated to seeing projects through to completion is huge! It means all the project details (however complex) get addressed, timelines get met, and clients receive great service along the way.
