“As a company, our entire philosophy and market strategy is fueled around providing new and existing customers with a consistent and world-class service, supporting them with solutions that meet with current and future needs, whatever they might be," commented Justin Paveley, engineering director, Kinly. "This latest accreditation further validates our strategy is working. However, we are not about to sit on our achievements.”

First launched in 2014, the AVIXA APEx accreditation program was first introduced to recognize AV integration companies and AV/IT design consulting firms that are able to demonstrate consistent high level of service quality and technical capability—including employee training—in order to meet their clients' needs and deliver exceptional solutions.

In a fiercely competitive market, Kinly is one of fewer than 100 global companies to have achieved AVIXA’s highly sought-after APEx status and is one of just a handful to have accomplished the global distinction over four consecutive years.  

“This is the fourth year that we have retained our Global APEx status and a great indicator of our ongoing commitment to the highest operational standards," said Tom Martin, CEO, Kinly (opens in new tab). "AVIXA’s APEx accreditation demonstrates our commitment to our clients, the investment and development of our employees, and our passion to stay ahead of the curve in an ever-changing industry. On behalf of Kinly, I congratulate all our teams in once again achieving this incredible distinction.”

Companies are evaluated on several key criteria to qualify. These include the number of employees holding key industry certifications, including AVIXA’s Certified Technology Specialists™ (CTS) credential (opens in new tab) (15% of total employees must be CTS certified), the completion of ongoing training, plus a consistent record of positive customer feedback.
