Minnesota’s AVI Systems Opens National Distribution and Logistics Center in North Texas

AVI Systems provides audiovisual and meeting room solutions for the modern workplace—and has also worked on large-scale projects including Texas Live! in Arlington. Its new Flower Mound logistics center offers "a factory-like approach to assembly, testing, logistics planning, and installation."

Minneapolis-based global audiovisual systems integrator AVI Systems has opened a new Velocity Logistics Center (VLC) in Flower Mound. The 40,000-square-foot employee and customer experience center serves as a new national distribution facility for AVI’s family of Velocity Solutions.

“We’re eliminating complexity and frustration that is often associated with professional audiovisual solutions,” Zach Valigura, VP of integration and delivery at AVI Systems, said in a statement. “Modern workplace demands mean operating with speed and scaling to meet the needs of each customer. By applying standards, certifying solutions, and managing inventory and operations with a manufacturing mindset, our industry-first VLC enables AVI Systems to deliver on customer expectations like never before.”

AVI Systems said its new VLC streamlines the entire ordering and deployment process, offering a factory-like approach to assembly, testing, logistics planning, and installation—ensuring “consistent quality and speed from order to deployment.”

The center has been designed for companies who have frustrations with the amount of time it takes to quote and deliver more simple repeatable systems in the AV industry. For example, AVI said the center recently configured, tested, deployed, and installed more than 100 meeting room systems for a Fortune 250 company, completing the project in less than four weeks.

AVI said that customers can choose from pre-configured Velocity Certified solutions ranging from meeting room and workspace solutions to digital signage.

The company’s “at-the-ready” Velocity designs are created using “best practices for the modern workplace” and offer optional features customers can add, based on their unique needs. Velocity certification also can be completed using a customer’s unique standards, allowing systems to be available on-demand with consistent pricing.

Per AVI Systems, its solutions include:

Velocity Meeting Spaces

Each design features enhanced meeting room experiences that integrate with existing infrastructure for simple installation. Options include Velocity Classic and Signature meeting rooms for huddle, small, medium and large conference rooms. Systems can be mounted to meeting room walls or users can select from an array of stands to support single or dual displays. Velocity Signature Meeting Rooms now support both Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

Velocity Workspace Solutions

These solutions are designed to remove the friction employees experience when transitioning between the home office and the workplace, AVI said. Velocity Workspace Solutions supports a seamless user experience, making it easy to identify flexible workspaces through a media-rich reservation experience. Matching home and office technologies enhances productivity.

Velocity Signage

AVI’s line of digital signage solutions are ideal for corporate lobbies and reception areas where people need assistance in the modern workplace, the company said. These solutions also help employees identify workspaces and meeting rooms and navigate unfamiliar environments. AVI Systems provides customizable templates for organizations to incorporate including templates for menu boards in cafeterias, wayfinding systems, and reception area displays. These solutions integrate with databases and third-party apps to keep information fresh and relevant.

“With certified solutions for the modern workplace and the new Velocity Logistics Center managing onboarding and delivery, AVI is prepared to assist any organization with large-scale deployments,” Keith Yandell, VP of innovation, said in a statement. “Our customers have spoken, and we listened.”

Yandell added that the company has expanded its Velocity portfolio beyond the meeting room to include both new products and “a mechanism to certify customer standards,” making systems easier to use. “We are truly Enterprise Grade—solutions that work every time, free of unnecessary complexity,” he said

AVI Systems said that it’s the largest global audiovisual and unified collaboration systems integrator, with 34 locations in the U.S. and the ability to do business nearly anywhere in the world.
