Customer Spotlight: Quest Audio Visual
Meet Quest Audio Visual
As we spoke with Ryan Peddigrew, director of business development for Toronto-based Quest Audio Visual, there were a few key figures that popped up:
- 10-year Flex customer
- 1,000,000 + scans
- 10K+ events
Still, there was one number that really stood out: 1. As in one family. Which, according to Ryan, is exactly what Quest AV is and what makes it a different kind of place to work.
"Even as we've grown, we've continued to promote from within and are big on empl
Customer Spotlight: Hardin-Simmons University
Meet Hardin - Simmons University
The old saying goes, "Everything's bigger in Texas." After speaking with Zachary McNair, on Hardin-Simmon University's Media Services Team, we're inclined to agree. Only instead of steaks or maybe landmass, what's bigger about HSU is its heart
If you haven't heard of Hardin-Simmons University, it is described as a "Baptist university in Abilene, Texas, with more than 130 years of history and traditions that aren't matched at any other school, and that gi
Customer Spotlight: EPiQVision
We're not exactly sure how else to start this piece about Toronto-based A/V production house, EpiQVision, except to say that President/Owner, Jordan Benson, is a genuinely good dude. We're proud that all of our customers are good people (they are, after all, in the business of creating memorable experiences that make our lives better), but Jordan is as authentic and down-to-earth as they come.
EpiQVision is a little different from most of the company's we've profiled, in that they partner with hotels, conference centers and event spaces to provide venue managemen
Customer Spotlight: Firehouse Productions
"From the beginning it has been all about the best. It wasn't about anything more. It wasn't about anything less."
That's how Brian Olson, founder of New York-based Firehouse Productions, set the tone for the company. It's also how Mark Dittmar, Vice President of Sales, set the stage for our conversation. As Flex was founded by a guy who believes that "good enough - isn't," we were hooked. He was talking in our language.
Driven by perfection and innovation, Firehouse set out not only to build a business, but a culture. Mark explained "the shopping cart moment" to us. "You know when there's a wheel that's wobbly on a shopping cart?" he asked. We nodded. "Well, if y
A letter from the CEO – Flex5 Timeline Update
I am excited to announce that we are nearing our goal of migrating to Flex5.
Flex4 has served our customers and industry well. It offered amazing industry leading features and pioneered Inventory / Rental Management software in the Cloud. Flex5 promises to continue this trajectory, and then-some.
Already, the overall speed improvements and stability of Flex5 have been noted by many of our customers. A longtime customer recently told us that this year was the busiest year in their history, and Flex worked "Flawlessly"--even with increased usage during their busiest months as they served their concert and festival clients. We love knowing we're helping our customers succeed, and this is why we say, "Your Success Is Our Flex."
We are on track to complete the migration of the Flex5 System Settings and Configuration Screen by the end of this year and the Flex 4 Flash app will be unavailable after
