Kinly achieves APEx accreditation
August 18, 2022
Kinly – the AV systems integrator and remote collaboration service provider – has achieved ‘AVIXA Provider of Excellence’ (APEx) global accreditation for a fourth successive year.
First launched in 2014, the AVIXA APEx accreditation programme was first introduced to recognise 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 competitive market, Kinly – an accredited system integration specialist – is one of fewer than 100 global companies to have achieved AVIXA’s APEx status and is one of just a handful to have accomplished the global distinction and over four consecutive years.
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 (15% of total employees must be CTS certified), the completion of ongoing training, plus a consistent record of positive customer feedback.
Supported by a global team of more than 1,200 employees, Kinly provides an ever-growing catalogue of AV and UCC professional services to more 2500 customers worldwide, which includes Fortune 500 companies, leading universities and governments among others. Offering 24×7 global support and bringing an entirely brand-agnostic approach to the market for fully tailored solutions built around the client, Kinly picked up several coveted awards in its most recent calendar year.
Typically, businesses are awarded APEx status in specific countries, but as a global service provider it has been Kinly’s ambition to achieve worldwide status, with the company already setting its sights on retaining the accreditation for a fifth consecutive year in 2023.
Justin Paveley, Engineering Director, Kinly, commented: “As a company, our entire philosophy and market strategy is fuelled 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. This latest accreditation further validates our strategy is working. However, we are not about to sit on our achievements.”
Tom Martin, CEO, Kinly, added: “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. 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.”
