PSNI Supersummit Spotlight: Christie

Christie at the 2021 PSNI Supersummit

Supersummit, the flagship event for Certified Solution Providers of the PSNI Global Alliance, is set to take place virtually on March 30. 

Ahead of the event, AVNetwork caught up with some of PSNI's Preferred Vendor Partners to get the scoop on their latest products and hear why they're looking forward to the 2021 Supersummit.

Interview with Bryan Boehme, Executive Director of Americas Enterprise Sales and Global Business Development, Christie.

AVNETWORK: What changes has your company made during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Bryan Boehme, Christie

Bryan Boehme

BRYAN BOEHME: It’s been business, just not as usual. Like many companies, we’ve pivoted from in-person events to online, taking part in online tradeshows, hosting online training and webinars. We’ve also moved to remote work and have embraced virtual meeting platforms. We’re interacting with colleagues and delivering sales demos through video calls, and we’ve taken this time to improve internal processes to make it easier for our customers to do business with us and vice versa.

In response to the pandemic, we’ve introduced a new product, Christie CounterAct powered by Care222 technology, to help reduce pathogens in shared indoor spaces, like movie theaters and attractions.

AVN: How can integrators better position themselves to profit from the products and/or services you have to offer?  

BB: We suggest that integrators take advantage of a variety of tools that we offer to gain a deeper understanding of Christie products and solutions. Through Christie University and the Christie partner portal, integrators can access a suite of sales and marketing tools, short videos, and online and on-demand courses related to product performance, operations, and maintenance. And we offer over 100 courses that are eligible for CTS Renewal Units. 

These tools will help integrators understand the differentiators that set Christie solutions apart, making it easier to deliver solutions to meet customers’ needs.

AVN: Tell us about your latest product.
