The age old conundrum of the Do-It-For-You vs. Do-It-Yourself argument is part of the decisioning process for most items that we purchase. While our systems group always stands ready to assist those who decide to engage professionals to manage their project, we have recently launched a new program for those who desire to handle the project in-house. Our “Do-It-Yourself & Save 50%” program is one of our newest offerings here at CCI. We’re particularly excited about this program largely because it came into being as a result of requests from prospective clients and customers. From my perspective, anytime we can meet an existing need in the market by filling a gap with value added services, it’s a win for all concerned parties.
As I mentioned above, we consistently receive inquiries from prospective clients who have recognized the need to either purchase a new system, or upgrade an existing system, with just one thing standing in their way…finances. There is rarely any debate as to the many benefits of having a first rate audio/visual system, but there is often a debate surrounding justifying the expense of such an undertaking. That’s where the Do-It-Yourself & Save 50% solution comes in…you see, 50% of the cost of any system installation is tied to labor costs. By doing it yourself (don’t worry…we’ll help) you can save as much as 50% of the cost of a typical systems installation. The reality is that this type of pricing differential simply lowers the barrier to entry for a large segment of the market.
At this point in time you’re probably thinking that while this all sounds well and good, I just don’t have the time or the knowledge to pull something like this off…Remember, I noted earlier that we’re here to help? The following points are what makes our Do-It-Yourself program a bit different than anything else you might have encountered:
Look, we understand that for large institutional projects, professional sports arenas, civic auditoriums and the like, that a Do-It-Yourself approach simply won’t work. That being said, it works perfectly well for most small and medium size projects.
You see, we realize that many of our clients would like to run their own projects and realize the cost savings for doing so. The only thing that typically keeps them from traveling this path is a knowledgeable resource to turn to for support and guidance when they hit a stumbling block. With our Do-It-Yourself program we will stay with you every step of the way to insure that you have all the knowledge and resources necessary to have the system you want at the prices you can afford, what’s not to like?
For clients that have the budget and can afford a professional approach to engineering and installing a high-end system, there is no better choice than to engage our systems group. That being said, for those clients who have budgetary constraints that obviate a full implementation from being a viable option, then there is no better solution than our Do-It-Yourself & Save 50% program.
If you can’t afford a full-blown installation, but can’t really imagine going it alone (even with our assistance), we can offer a hybrid solution that offers the best of all worlds. We can offer increased assistance over the Do-It-Yourself program, and still offer a solution at a 20% to 30% savings over a full installation by our systems group.
The bottom line is that we don’t want price to be a consideration for you in your decision. Whether it is taking advantage of our financing offers, or our Do-It-Yourself programs, you deserve to have the system of your dreams…Just call or e-mail us and we’ll help you arrive at the best program to meet the specific needs surrounding your individual circumstances.
