Crestron programming is a niche industry, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a good amount of competition in the San Diego area. Because of that, it is important to be able to distinguish between the various Crestron programming companies that are vying for your business.
We believe there are three key characteristics that all serious Crestron programming companies should have. If you hire a company with all three, your project is much more likely to finish on time, on budget, and meet all of your specifications.
Extensive Crestron Programming Experience
Not all experienced AV programming companies in San Diego have extensive Crestron programming experience. This is key. You want to hire a company that has completed a good number of Crestron projects in diverse environments.
AVPA has specialized in Crestron programming since our company’s founding in 2001. We have completed more than 1,250 projects in environments such as entertainment venues, bars and restaurants, houses of worship, corporate boardrooms, military facilities, educational buildings, and high-end residences.
This diversity of experience in Crestron programming has given AVPA a large library of programming code with which to work when we begin a new project. What is more, much of that code is pretested and proven, allowing us to complete projects more efficiently and with less troubleshooting.
Skilled Crestron Programmers
Like almost any specialty, with Crestron programming, there are the programming basics, and then there are the more advanced programming skills. You want to hire a Crestron programming company that knows more than just the basics, even if you think your project is a fairly simple one. Advanced Crestron programming skills will make a huge difference when it comes to incorporating custom features.
Certainly, you want to look for a company that is certified by Crestron, having completed their training and proven their competency with Crestron products, but you also want to find a Crestron programming company in San Diego that is devoted to continuing education about Crestron products in particular, and the AV industry in general.
At AVPA, we believe you should never stop learning, especially when it comes to a field like audiovisual, where things are constantly changing, evolving, and improving. We make sure that all of our certifications are kept up-to-date, and we attend training events whenever possible.
You may think of a Crestron programmer as someone who works largely “behind the scenes.” And while it’s true that a lot of work is done that you won’t ever see, there is a large aspect of what we do that involves working directly with our customers. It starts with approaching the client/programmer relationship as a partnership. At AVPA, we work hard to understand our clients’ specific goals upfront so in the end, they have the custom systems they were looking for. Also, during the programming process, there is a lot of back and forth between our team and our clients, so you want to make sure the Crestron programming company you hire is easy to work with and receptive of your ideas and feedback.
When you are shopping around for a Crestron programming company in San Diego, look for one that really listens to you and doesn’t immediately try to limit you or tell you, “this is the way things are always done.”
