Exertis Almo, the largest, most specialized Pro AV distributor, has announced another dramatic addition to its service offering, resulting from the first and only Pro AV service partnership with Project Crew Multiplier, LLC (PCM). Building on its already robust network of service providers, the new partnership with PCM gives Exertis Almo resellers and integrators the ability to outsource qualified services to expand current projects, grow their businesses and achieve higher short- and long-term profits.
Co-founded by Chris Whitley (founder of USAV Group) and industry veteran Dan Abrams, PCM is a nationwide organization focused on the development and growth of third party service providers across the low voltage spectrum. Because of the partnership, Exertis Almo resellers and integrators have direct access to the PCM Network, which includes fully vetted Crew Network Providers (CNPs) that offer nationwide project labor and installation, drafting, programming training, staffing and rack builds, as well as logistics and staging, and supplemental labor services.
PCM is exhibiting at Exertis Almo’s E4 Experience, a traveling regional show for integrators, resellers and their end users, which is stopping in Washington, D.C. on September 23, and Boston on October 20. The single-day E4 Experiences feature an extensive showroom containing the industry’s newest products and services, high quality education worth AVIXA CTS Renewal Units, and endless networking opportunities.
According to Exertis Almo Executive Vice President and COO Sam Taylor, “We have looked forward to the opportunity to expand our service capabilities through a partnership with PCM. As the first and only provider of these services for Pro AV, we are the conduit to some of the best pre-qualified labor, installation and other services available in the US. At the same time, we are able to support service partners and enhance their business by connecting them with our vast portfolio of talented resellers and systems integrators.” He noted, “The PCM partnership was formed from a longstanding working relationship that spans two decades and is built on mutual respect and success.”
Director of Services for Exertis Almo Cory Allen added, “Exertis Almo and PCM have been engaging on
an initiative to work together for awhile as both organizations understand that the key to thrive in Pro AV
is to outsource services. We are partnering to provide resellers and integrators with these enhanced
capabilities and help them shape and evolve their businesses to include a service model that will greatly
enhance what they can now bring to each and every project to more impactfully increase its value and
“We chose to partner with Exertis Almo primarily due to our parallel commitment to a platform for the reseller and integrator community to leverage and expand their reach through responsible subcontracting of services,” explained PCM Co-Founder Chris Whitley. “We look forward to engaging with E4 Experience attendees to talk more about how services and our partnership with Exertis Almo will benefit them, both now and well into the future.”
The new PCM service partnership builds on Exertis Almo’s recent announcement with Spectrio to offer significantly expanded content creation services that range from turnkey CMS platforms to fully customizable content.
