Kinly, a leading global provider of visual communications and collaborations services, has been recognised as Global APEx certified for its commitment to delivering industry excellence.
Kinly’s Global APEx status is unique as only a handful of companies across the world hold the Global APEx distinction. Commonly, businesses are awarded APEx status in specific countries, but as a global service provider it has been Kinly's goal to achieve this status for worldwide use. The AVIXA APEx program is a recognition program for integration companies and AV design consulting firms dedicated to upholding industry excellence by providing quality service to customers.
To qualify for the APEx certification companies are evaluated on several criteria like; the number of employees holding key industry certifications, including AVIXA’s CTS credential (15% of total employees must be CTS certified), the completion of ongoing training as well as positive customer feedback. To foster better communication between the AV provider and the client, APEx providers must also prove that they meet or exceed the requirements within two ANSI/INFOCOMM standards:
- Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes
- AV System Performance Verification Standard
“The APEx designation gives AV companies a mark of distinction in the marketplace,” said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, AVIXA’s Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer. “Customers of APEx companies can be confident of the AV provider’s professionalism and commitment to ongoing training, customer service and dedication to excellence.”
“I’m delighted that we have retained our Global APEx status for a third year in a row, and for the first time as Kinly. Achieving the APEx distinction is important to us as it demonstrates our commitment to our clients, the investment and development of our employees, and our passion to staying ahead of the curve in an ever-changing industry,” comments Justin Paveley, Engineering Director, Kinly.
"Justin and the team at KINLY continue to demonstrate what it means to be a trusted and quality-assured supplier of integrated systems in the AV industry, through support of AVIXA’s CTS program and now through its attainment of the APEx accreditation for the third time running. Their enthusiasm for the program is truly inspiring and a great example of their pledge to the industry,” says Ben Barnard, Regional Manager, UK & Ireland, AVIXA
