Show Notes

In the company of two experienced industry practitioners, David Graham of Grahams Hi-Fi and Steve Moore of SMC, we cover two important issues facing integrators - how do you run a smart home project in another country and what can you do to generate recurring monthly revenue from service and after-care? We’ll be asking what steps you should take to deliver on projects overseas and finding out how you can make a success of this kind of work for you and your customer. Then, once we've figured out what makes Steve Moore tick - and heard the one word he'd use to describe his fashion sense - we'll examine why service is important for your business. How can you offer after-care and why should you? What will change for your business if you do provide an on-going service package for your customer and what are the pitfalls to avoid? This podcast is recorded in the London showroom of Grahams Hi-Fi. The Integrated Home supports Together For Cinema – to find out more, visit www.togetherforcinema.co.uk. Sponsored by Meridian Audio, The Integrated Home is a Wildwood and Alfi Media Production.

Retail Plus Installation or Installation Only?

We're in Kent to talk with two businesses who have taken quite different paths in the industry. Potters Home Digital are an established company who began life as a retailer and have added installation successfully to their business. Micarta are a new and focused integration firm, born from the ashes of Challenge Control. In conversation with directors from each company, Alex Jones and Gavin Baker, we find out what’s working for them and how they’re growing and sustaining a business in home integration. We’ll also be learning plenty about the market in Kent. How similar is work here to business in London and the commuter belt counties? Where are the opportunities? And, what are the advantages for a local business that’s tuned in to its community? Gavin reveals what makes him tick in our Hot Seat Q&A. This episode is recorded in the Lilford Gallery in Canterbury. Thanks to pod partners Meridian Audio, AWE, Sony and Integrated Systems Europe for their support in making the series possible. ...
