Comment on Sustainable AV

@Alexis Bou Farhat, CTS-D, CTS-I Very good article, thank you for sharing, here in Mexico I am leading an effort with the SAVe organization to raise awareness and invite all leaders of the AV industry to join the efforts to be more sustainable and seek to comply with the UNs SDG.
The guide you describe can be of great contribution to this cause, if you decide to translate it into Spanish it would help the Latam community. I also invite you to follow my publications and I am open to your comments and to be able to collaborate to bring these messages to the entire community.

Greetings from Guadalajara in Mexico.

Hi @Juan Carlos Medina, CTS  thanks for your comments !
Please feel free to translate it to Spanish.

Dear Alexis. Thanks for the post. 

You wrote most of aspects. I think, at first viewing distance and type of content are important. Then we can go through the points that you mentioned above. 

Thanks for having time reviewing my Post !

Viewing Distance and type of content are important factors as well !

As an AV expert, I highly value Xchange as a vital online community for the pro AV industry. It offers a powerful platform for sharing expertise, networking, and increasing brand visibility.
AVIXA Xchange provides an ideal opportunity to connect with industry professionals and establish thought leadership.!! 

Frontline workers play a critical role in organizations, yet only a small percentage feel engaged at work.
The lack of effective communication and engagement strategies is a major challenge.

By leveraging mobile employee apps and implementing tailored communication strategies, companies can bridge the gap, empower their frontline workers, and unlock their potential for improved customer satisfaction and overall success.

Thanks for sharing ! @Korbyt 

The lack of uptake of new AV technology can be attributed to several key factors.
Firstly, if the technology is difficult to use, with multiple steps and a steep learning curve, users are less likely to embrace it.

Secondly, there may be a mismatch between the technology implemented and the actual needs of the users and organization. Conducting a thorough needs analysis can help align technology choices with requirements.
Lastly, if end users are not involved in the decision-making process or do not trust the technology, adoption will be hindered. Implementing a Proof of Concept can help build trust and obtain valuable user feedback, leading to increased adoption.
