SCN's Top 50 Systems Integrators of 2012

By AV Network Staff On December 06, 2012

Sometimes a word or phrase enters our cultural lexicon, and like an unrelenting case of the hiccups, it’s impossible to remember life before it. In 2012, that word, in no uncertain terms, was uncertainty.
SCN Top 50
There is more than a small amount of serendipity at play here—2012 having been earth’s last chance at all but certain cataclysm, at least in the predictable sense. But past the obligatory End of Days allusions, how does one plan for the future in an uncertain world? How can you chart a path forward when you’re unsure of whether you’ll be traveling by land, sea, air, or Delorian?

In our industry, the solution has been a simple one: focus on the destination. For once you strip away the prognostication, you come to an undeniable conclusion—this world only spins in one direction, and it will not spin there without us.

Will communication and collaboration cease to be the beating heart of every business on the planet? Most certainly not. Will the human eye and ear somehow plea to be less dazzled? Not in this lifetime. Information, messages, expression—these are not words of the year. Their ubiquity transcends a mere 365 days, and does so on the back of this industry.

With that in mind, SCN presents the 2012 Top 50 Systems Integrators in the U.S. and Canada, ranked here by projected systems integration revenue for 2012. As some companies are also involved in other segments of AV business, we ask entrants to separate their commercial AV systems installation revenue from total revenue.

As always, Top 50 submissions are voluntary. The chart ranks those willing to share their internal numbers to establish an industry snapshot. While the bottom line is important, the Top 50 chart is only one way to view an industry where success is determined by more than mere numbers. There is much to learn from how every company operates, and we look forward to continuing to provide the commercial AV business with an in-depth look at the inner workings of its finest companies in 2013. - Chuck Ansbacher
