Milk, eggs, sugar, flour, butter, and salt. The centuries-old shopping list upon which all baking is built—food items that all of us consume on a daily basis. And yet somehow in 2013, one man in lower Manhattan managed to combine these ingredients in such a way that it inspired people to wake up before sunrise and wait in line for hours on end, all for the opportunity to purchase one of his creations.

I’m talking, of course, about the Cronut, the elusive croissant-donut hybrid that dominated Twitter feeds and tempted taste buds all year long. But while the Cronut is surely delicious, it’s hard to believe any pastry is worth a 3am wake-up (or the $100 Cronuts were fetching on the black market). No, this pastry craze had surprisingly little to do with the dessert, and everything to do with... the experience. The experience, specifically, of something completely new.

As our century enters its angsty teen years, we’re starved for new experiences. Sure, people have been lining up for things since legs were invented, but as humanity has progressed, “new” has become increasingly difficult to create. Fortunately, AV integrators are in the new experience creation business. Unconstrained by a stale list of ingredients, this industry has been on a roll, churning out new experiences at a breathtaking pace. Be it reinventing the retail experience through digital signage and video walls, reinventing the office through videoconferencing and collaboration, reinventing the sporting experience with massive scoreboards and immersive sound systems, or redefining architecture through projection mapping, there are fewer daily experiences that this industry’s hands aren’t on, and fewer new experiences that don’t entirely revolve around it.

Will an AV integrator create the next hot dessert item anytime soon? It hardly matters. This industry cooked up dozens of Cronuts this year alone, and best of all, nobody had to wake up at 3am to experience them.

With that in mind, SCN presents the 2013 Top 50 Systems Integrators in the U.S. and Canada, ranked here by projected systems integration revenue for 2013. As some companies are also involved in other segments of integration, 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. With this in mind, next year SCN will introduce a regional ranking of integrators as a supplement to the Top 50—a way of paying tribute to some of the smaller players in our industry who nonetheless achieve very big things. 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 2014.

Q&A

Where did you see the most growth in 2013?

Eric Choucroun, Account Executive, Washington Professional Systems
Video telepresence systems, from turnkey single-camera carts to custom fourcamera rooms, and DSP-enhanced audio instrumentation were key growth areas for Washington Professional Systems. WPS attributes the growth in VTC to ever-shrinking public and private sector travel budgets. The pace of advances in DSP technologies also provided customers with opportunities to upgrade or replace older systems, even systems that had been in use less than five years.

Derek Paquin, Principal, Sensory Technologies
Large enterprise showed the greatest growth for us in 2013. Coming out of 2012, we made a strategic decision to reduce the reliance on our existing client base and challenged the business development team to create a strong go-to-market strategy for new clients. We worked hard to take our successful, innovative solutions to a broader range of clients this past year and held each other accountable to that objective every day.

Jeff Stoebner, CEO, AVI Systems
Healthcare and corporate, based on increasing construction activity.

John Zettel, CEO, AVI-SPL
This year we saw growth in corporate and education (K-20). On top of our integration services, clients in these verticals are seeking managed services in order to support them ongoing.

Scott Birdsall, President and CEO, CompView
The three largest contributors to our over 20 percent growth in 2013 were the acceleration of demand for collaboration solutions in the corporate and higher education market segments; the expansion of our healthcare solution business segment, specifically in operating room solutions; and the significant increase in the size of projects. It is now common for projects to be multiple millions of dollars, and span the complete North American market.

Where did you see the most growth in 2013?

Adam Kaiser, AVP, Corporate Marketing, IVCi
We saw tremendous growth in technologies that enable collaboration in any environment. Many of the rooms that IVCi designed and implemented were complemented by open spaces that were equipped with displays and wireless presentation technology. And not surprisingly, iPad connectivity for these technologies was incredibly popular. We also saw strong growth in the healthcare and enterprise markets.

Garrett Chumbley, Vice President of Sales, CEC
Healthcare facilities are seeing changes in how they are measured. There is more competition and additional demands due to the ACA. To address these issues, healthcare organizations are putting more emphasis on technology systems to improve their efficiencies and overall patient satisfaction. Growth in higher education is driven in the most part by institutions trying to stay current on new technologies to attract a student base that has been growing up on technology.

Where did you see the most growth in 2013?

Rod Andrewson, Engineering Manager, CCS Presentation Systems
In our vertical markets, our biggest increases occurred in the corporate market, specifically, boardrooms and training rooms. Many of our corporate clients saw the need to either upgrade or completely re-outfit their boardrooms, training rooms, and conference rooms to include digital video formats and, of course, better collaboration tools. In the technology markets, our biggest increases occurred in the use of HDBaseT products and video over IP products. We saw the value in using the HDBaseT standard product to improve the end results of our installations.

Jeff Irvin, Principal, Spinitar
While higher education helped us weather the economic storm over the last few years, we’ve seen a BIG increase in our corporate business in 2013.

Mike Landrum, CEO, Technical Innovation
The control room market. With the overwhelming influx of data to be deciphered, optimizing the efficiencies of communication in these mission-critical spaces is vital. It is a highly specialized market that demands a high level of expertise in design/build with a breadth of knowledge ranging from security software applications to the implementation of collaborative visual communications technology and ergonomic design.

Dave Berlin, President, VCA
We saw an uptick in our video wall display business. Clients want to communicate with their customers and employees in more exciting and impactful ways. In 2013 bezel sizes shrunk, the cost of the displays came down, brightness went up, and new technologies have allowed for very creative applications that incorporate multi-touch technology.

Michael Fay, General Manager, Sound Image
Casinos in Southern California compete with each other by constantly expanding and remodeling their venues. There is money to spend, and they use lots of AV technology. Higher-ed in California and Arizona seems to always have money to spend on technology. State and local bonds and alumni groups are the source of most of that money.

Glenn Polly, CEO, VideoSonic Systems
Higher ed and transportation exploded for us in 2013 with several very visible projects. All of the growth was from repeat clients or recommendations from our loyal client base. Technologies that we used and that helped fuel the growth were the HDBaseT products that help shorten the install time and infrastructure cabling requirements.

Patrick Britton, Vice President Visual Communications, Carousel Industries
We have experienced tremendous growth with collaboration and conferencing technologies. Our IT background makes us uniquely qualified to support our customer’s growing need to incorporate traditional IT products with AV products to enhance their communication, conferencing, and collaboration environments.

Where do you expect the most growth in 2014?

Ron Gaboury, CEO, Yorktel
In 2014, we expect unified communications and collaboration solutions to reside firmly on the radar of decision makers worldwide. In addition, breakthrough technologies such as WebRTC have the potential to make significant impact on the industry.

Derek Paquin, Principal, Sensory Technologies
Our cloud-delivered services increased 194 percent in 2013, so we’ve seen a significant shift away from transactional, own-it equipment purchases and toward contractual, subscription- based services. We expect this trend to continue in 2014. Across verticals, we see organizations seeking cost-effective ways to collaborate, and there is a strong migration toward cloud-delivered solutions that have low barriers for entry, broad user appeal for adoption, and scalability.

Jeff Stoebner, CEO, AVI Systems
Healthcare will continue to be strong, and UC in AV will be a positive influence.

Rod Andrewson, Engineering Manager, CCS Presentation Systems
In 2014 we again see our corporate market growing along with our education market. In the corporate market we see the need for more and better collaboration tools driving our sales up. In education we see a pent-up and frustrated group of educators/administrators finally receiving funds to improve their aging technology products to digital video formats and invest more heavily in collaboration tools.

Again in 2014, we see growth in HDBaseT standard products and video over IP with the inclusion of collaboration-based products all growing at about the same rate. These three products will be the biggest technologies to grow in 2014.

Eric Choucroun, Account Executive, Washington Professional Systems
While VTC and DSP technologies will continue to drive Washington Professional Systems’ business in 2014, we anticipate the highest growth to be in demand for high capacity optical switching systems and state-of-the-art display technologies. Demand for ever-higher display resolutions is at the heart of this, and the newest technologies can no longer be supported over copper-based infrastructure.

Scott Birdsall, President and CEO, CompView
The demand by C-level managers for improved collaboration solutions and creative work environments will continue to drive our industry. Additionally, new digital infrastructure, display technology, and interactive solutions will drive demand for system upgrades.

Where do you expect the most growth in 2014?

Jeff Irvin, Principal, Spinitar
We remain bullish on healthcare in ’14, and hope to see an uptick in digital signage deployments for the coming year.

Debra Alexander, Director of Global Managed Services, Verrex
We see the continued growth in the market for cloud-based, “meet me” services that afford global enterprises the ability to leverage traditional roombased endpoints and mobile users.

Glenn Polly, CEO, VideoSonic Systems
We see more digital signage opportunities with more powerful software and higher bandwidth becoming available. We believe more clients will finally want to enter the market. As the prices of commercial displays are also coming down, it makes it easier to justify.

Mike Landrum, CEO, Technical Innovation
Cloud-based enterprise video conferencing. Operating expenses are spread over a longer period of time with no large, up-front capital outlay required, making the entry point attainable.

Jim Haney, Director, Marketing and Digital Communications, Xerox Audio Visual Solutions
In 2014, we will maintain our focus on helping clients collaborate through our broad offering of AV solutions. In addition, we have expanded our resources around digital signage, video walls, and creative content services. We have also augmented our support around control rooms and managed services.

Patrick Britton, Vice President Visual Communications, Carousel Industries
We continue to see growth in the conferencing and collaboration space. Industry is changing its model. Successful companies are encouraging their employees to work together to improve the product they deliver to the market. We enable them to collaborate if they are in the same office or across the globe.

What was the biggest business challenge of 2013?

John Zettel, CEO, AVI-SPL
A big challenge in 2013 was the government sequestration. This not only slowed down doing business within the government sector, it led to uncertainty in other sectors. We overcame this by finding other opportunities while certain jobs stalled. The change in technology created a challenge this year. The rapid change in video technology created a dynamic and confusing world for our customers. This is where it’s imperative for our employees to possess the expertise to guide our customers through the process. We spend time educating our customers about the many different video solutions through a variety of ways, including educational sessions, webinars, and whitepapers.

What was the biggest business challenge of 2013?

Jeff Irvin, Principal, Spinitar Getting further down the path with an ERP integration that began last year so that we can fully leverage the potential of this new tool while focusing on more efficiently integrating a quality product for our customer. Working in, and as teams, has been the difference.

David Gormley, CEO, Adtech Systems
Our biggest challenge in 2013 was in finding new business opportunities to match an $8 million project completed in 2012, contributing to a large percentage of that 2012 growth, without having to chase low-margin bid projects just to maintain revenue numbers. After failing to be awarded several large bid projects in our region, losing to low-cost, slim resource rivals in the marketplace, we made a conscious decision to invest more of our time and resources into improving installation efficiencies and concentrating on design build opportunities and steady repeat business from regular customers that value our services. While this strategy did not result in making up the $8 million in revenue, our overall profitability exceeded that of 2012 without it.

Mike Landrum, CEO, Technical Innovation
Maintaining growth in personnel talent commensurate with revenue growth. We accomplished this by using a multitude of recruiting strategies.

Michael Fay, General Manager, Sound Image
We had a big increase in large jobs, most of which ended up being scheduled on top of each other. We are not a company that believes in sub-contracting outside labor, nor hiring freelancers. With that model, our challenge was one of having adequate manpower to allocate to all our jobs. Our solution is to bring in a few ex employees that know and meet our standards and expectations, and that also have flexible schedules. We also share CA and AZ staff between offices when needed. We don’t often have a max scheduling overlap, in both offices, at the same time.

What was the biggest business challenge of 2013?

Dave Berlin, President, VCA
Our biggest challenge of 2013 was the continued migration of our industry into the IT space and the expectations of much shorter timelines despite the inherent customized nature of our larger, more complex installations. Our work has always been dependent on the construction trade and is more dependent than ever on the IT infrastructure, which is typically provided by the client, thus, when delivered late, is difficult to manage. Through a disciplined project management practice and better upfront communication, we have been able to successfully manage expectations.

Eric Choucroun, Account Executive, Washington
Professional Systems Our greatest challenge in 2013 was managing a diverse portfolio of projects, crossing all familiar AV verticals. To meet this growing demand, Washington Professional Systems instituted improved material and resource tracking systems, hired additional staff, and engaged new subcontractors. To continue improving our operating efficiency, WPS seeks to leverage features of the recently improved AV-IQ in 2014.

Garrett Chumbley, Vice President of Sales, CEC
One of our challenges in 2013 was directly related to our year-over-year growth. We wanted to preserve our culture as we added talented employees into our company. In order to do this, we hired a full time recruiter to find employees that are the best fit for our company, implemented a monthly new hire training emphasizing our culture, and continued focus on our leadership development program to build current employees.

Derek Paquin, Principal, Sensory Technologies
Sensory Technologies was a very early adopter of BYOD, anticipating the need to be proactive in finding ways to integrate mobile devices into communication and collaboration solutions. Figuring out how to leverage our JOIN videoconferencing solution to best fit that growing BYOD culture was a challenge, and we specifically were committed to meeting the needs of our clients that already had invested in a Lync infrastructure. How do we further mature our existing videoconferencing solution, so it is intuitive, interoperable, scalable, and cost-effective for everyone? That’s the game-changing videoconferencing solution enhancement we sought in 2013.
