2022 CI BEST AWARDS
Winners
The 2022 BEST Awards
highlight products
and services that
have been genuine
diff erence-makers in
the commercial AV industry,
helping integrators sustain
and grow their businesses.
AWARDS WINNERS
WHEN COMMERCIAL INTEGRATOR
conceived the BEST Awards, the founding
vision was straightforward: Put simply,
the program was created to highlight
products and services that are genuine
diff erence-makers in the commercial AV industry.
In particular, to align with CI's status
as the business handbook for technology
professionals, the BEST Awards program
showcases off erings that help integrators
sustain and grow their businesses.
When the awards program was created,
though, no one could have imagined all
the headwinds that integrators would face
in a year like 2022 - namely, continued
supply-chain snarls, multi-decade-high
infl ation, a lingering global pandemic,
sky-high oil prices and a labor shortage.
Thus, if ever there was a time to pay close
attention to our BEST Award honorees and
consider how you can benefi t from their
excellence, now is that time.
As opposed to operating the BEST
42
Commercial Integrator JULY 2022
Awards in a " crowd-sourced " way, CI relies
on a panel of unbiased judges who have
no affi liation with or connection to the
candidates. Each judge assesses nominees
independently, thus ensuring that each one
is empowered to exercise their own judgment,
free of undue infl uence. For every
candidate, judges consider three separate
metrics: a product's most important
functional features; the benefi ts the product
provides to the integrator; and the product's
design and/or technical innovation.
Thus, judges' perspective on each nominee
is well-rounded, refl ecting a mix of specs
and tangible business value.
Dan Ferrisi, editor-in-chief of Commercial
Integrator, says, " It would be hard to
describe the past few years as anything
other than a challenge for the commercial
AV industry and the integrators who
power it. It's a testament to integrators'
business acumen and technical skill
that so many of them have managed to
rebound robustly despite macroeconomic
and societal headwinds. Their ability to
bounce back is directly related to the
tools that their vendor and distributor
partners arm them with, and the BEST
Awards represent CI's best eff ort to spotlight
those tools. "
Ferrisi continues, " In the pages that
follow, you'll see some of the very best
hardware, soſt ware, services and other
integrator resources. Although our panel of
independent judges determined winners
in the respective categories, I want to
commend every BEST Award nominee for
supplying the jet fuel that keeps integrators
- and the experiences they create - moving
forward. Truly, each of you deserves
recognition and praise. "
Without further ado, enjoy this spotlight
of BEST Award winners. And don't forget to
start thinking about what products in your
pipeline might be good candidates for the
2023 BEST Awards!
