"One of the most time-consuming aspects to managing a web site is ensuring all information is correct and up to date. Our marketing team struggled for years getting timely, valid and complete information from our suppliers, often having to rely on adjusted data from other overseas markets. Since integrating AV-IQ into our website, our customers are engaging with our website more, we have saved over 100 hours in marketing effort, and we have increased our lead generation from the site."

Product research and selection:

"The "My iQ" initiative is an industry game changer. It will dramatically shorten and improve the product information supply chain provide instant bi–directional connection between manufacturers and their user groups and will create a new category of software tool developers to bring value to the entire supply chain. Costs will be reduced and wealth created for the entire industry."

"This is a topic that I am very passionate about. I am in full support and will help in any way I can. I can offer the immediate block support of the PSNI organization as well.I believe there is no one single thing that Infocomm could facilitate for Technical Innovation more important than driving forward the standardization and electronic warehousing of "all" product information including pricing. Daily, weekly or even monthly updates would be the single biggest efficiency savings for our industry that we could achieve.It is so logical and shocking that many of our suppliers don's yet understand the added efficiencies for both dealers and themselves."

Crestron able to provide timely, accurate product info

Dear InfoComm iQ,
Crestron has been onboard with InfoComm iQ since its inception, and we've watched it develop into a powerful tool for ourselves and our dealers. Participating in iQ allows us to quickly and easily keep product content and news information up-to-date, instantly allowing us to deliver accurate and timely information to hundreds of [our] dealers' websites. InfoComm iQ gives our dealers a simple method of representing Crestron products on their websites. It gives Crestron the confidence [of] knowing that we are in control of what content, in terms of specifications and features, is being displayed to the public. At the same time, it allows our dealers to concentrate on branding what makes their company unique, rather than spending time keeping product content up-to-date.

With hundreds of pro-AV dealers implementing the InfoComm iQ database into their websites, our decision to continue to participate was a no-brainer. Now, we can concentrate on keeping our website up-to-date and be confident that our dealers are being served current, accurate information.

Vincent Bruno
Director of Marketing
Crestron Electronics, Inc.

Dear Manufacturer,
If you have visited the Midtown Video website, you probably noticed that we subscribe to the InfoComm iQ catalog program. I am writing to tell you how critical your support of the program is to us. We have determined that it is the only practical and affordable solution available for marketing your products in a catalog environment. In fact, we are continuously closing business that originates from customer viewings of product data in the catalog.

Our ability to provide accurate and current product information is in your hands. The product data in that catalog as well as the data in the general line reference catalog on our web site plays an important role in our sales efforts every day. Additionally, the lead generation derived from the new "Find a Resource" functionality within the iQ Online catalogs allows us to benefit from InfoComm's investment as a part of their industry awareness campaign.

We all know how the web has impacted us. It has, in ten short years, grown to be the most significant, most widely used tool for research ever. The InfoComm iQ program is clearly the best solution available for both of us to capture the business opportunities it provides.
