AVAD control and automation dealers across the US and Canada to launch Savant Studio and Savant Central Management cloud-based tools
Scottsdale, Ariz. – July 23, 2018 – AVAD LLC, North America’s leading provider of solutions to the residential and commercial custom installation markets, announces a strategic partnership with Savant to showcase a broad range of smart home products based on Savant Studio and Savant Central Management. For this initiative, AVAD will provide sales, logistics, and award-winning support services to their network of dealers in the United States and Canada beginning on August 1st.
Savant has selected AVAD as an exclusive distribution partner for Savant Central Management and Savant Studio, a groundbreaking new cloud-based configuration and management software that will enable AVAD dealers to deliver superior smart home systems to a broad range of consumers. This amazing technology dramatically simplifies system configuration, which can be deployed remotely from an iPad, and proactively alerts integrators to service opportunities before a problem arises. And, with Savant Central Management, AVAD dealers and their clients can feel confident knowing that they are protected by time-stamped, permission-based secure access to vital systems. The AVAD/Savant partnership will also provide existing Savant dealers with regional access to hardware as well as technical support and customer service thanks to AVAD’s physical presence in major markets.
“Savant Central Management and Savant Studio are transformative innovations that greatly simplify the configuration and deployment process for control and automation systems,” explained JC Murphy, Executive Vice President at Savant. “We are excited to deliver entry-level smart home systems featuring an unprecedented array of functionality and services along with the most intuitive user experience available through AVAD and their network of dealers.”
Select AVAD dealers are participating in a pilot program to test the Savant Central Management and Savant Studio, prior to the official launch on August 1st. Program participant, Sharif Jackson of Media Wiring Solutions explained his experience: “I found the iPad app for Savant Studio to be very user friendly. The set-up process, problem detection and resolution, and deployment of the system was very efficient. Savant allows me to send my technicians to install equipment with a clear roadmap. Using the Savant Central Management tool makes it easy to troubleshoot and make changes to a system without going into the field.”
The partnership between AVAD and Savant will provide smart home consumers, including a growing number of first-time automation users, with unmatched functionality and the most intuitive user experience available to control lighting, climate, entertainment and more. Savant will work closely with AVAD to approve new dealers while providing them with a synergistic smart home solution for their customers that is reliable, repeatable, scalable and profitable. AVAD’s 20 locations, which have all received comprehensive training from Savant, will display and stock a full line of Savant products as well as provide support from system design to help expand and bundle solutions. Savant will also be participating in AVAD’s 1-2-3 Rewards Program.
“Savant is recognized throughout the consumer electronics and custom installation industry for their luxury, award-winning control solutions,” said Jon Zabel, Vice President of Sales and Vendor Management for AVAD. “We’re pleased to announce our strategic partnership including a successful pilot program of the Savant Central Management and Savant Studio with many of our dealers. Our strong presence in the marketplace positions Savant with an extensive customer reach throughout North America. We look forward to a successful, prosperous partnership with Savant.”
