We are proud to announce that Carousel has once again been selected as part of an exclusive group of the Top 50 Integrators of 2019 by Systems Contractor News (SCN). Carousel is a multi-year winner of the SCN award, and the company was tied for 17th on this year’s list.
For the past decade, SCN has compiled and published its list of the AV industry’s top integrators. The Top 50 list is ranked according to each company’s overall AV revenue. Most companies listed in the Top 20 are AV-only companies. With the convergence of IT and AV, Carousel’s continued success has been due to their wide expertise in data, UC and AV, which enables them to understand how to integrate AV solutions across diverse communication platforms and provide a complete end-to-end solution from one company.

In addition to honoring this year’s Top 50, SCN recently published a series of articles on AV market growth and trends. Rhonda Wingate, Carousel’s VP of Visual Collaboration Sales was quoted in several of the articles, offering her perspective on Carousel’s performance as well as the key trends and factors influencing customer behaviors.
Commenting on the vertical markets and/or technologies which exhibited the most growth for Carousel this year, Wingate noted, “We saw tremendous interest and growth in the all-in-one conferencing systems, such as Crestron Flex, Cisco Room Kits, and Poly Trio bundles. Customers are looking for solutions that are easy to use, install, and support, and that also integrate into their current UC environments, such as Microsoft Teams and Webex Teams, as well as with open architecture video cloud solutions such as Zoom or Pexip.”
When asked about Carousel’s secret to collaborating with other members of the AV community like architects and content creators, Wingate stated, “Most large projects involve general contractors, architects, electricians, and occasionally, third-party design consultant firms. Carousel’s overall success has been predicated on building strong relationships with these partner groups and providing them the assurance that we can implement the AV components of the project. It is important to foster good relationships with all trade groups, as we are truly working as a team to deliver projects on time and on budget.”

A big thanks to everyone on the Carousel AV integration team for their ongoing efforts and customer commitment.”
