Written 2015-06-17 by Herman_Digi

TAMPA,FL., JUN 17, 2015 – Herman (www.Herman-is.com),the leading nationwide provider of professional AV products, procurement services and labor resources to systems integrators in the commercial AV andbroadcast industries, announced today the presentation of a new pre-sales engineering solution, the Herman PocketEngineer™ app.

The Pocket Engineer (PE) app allows systems integration sales professionals to collect data needed to accurately and consistently quote projects in the pre-salesphase.  Data is gathered in astandardized format in order for proposals to be developed and delivered tocustomers quicker.  Engineers save valuable time by eliminating the frequent exchanges with the sales person to collect the necessary information to effectively engineer a proposal.  In addition, the sales team can share imagesof the site with the engineer using the app.  

While Pocket Engineer is set up to send the needs analysis to the system integrators’internal engineering team, PE can also be utilized to take advantage of Herman’sindustry certified engineers.  Whenresources are tight, the needs analysis can be forwarded to Herman engineers.  Herman Engineers will prepare editable, engineering documentation to complete your customer proposals within 72 hours of receipt.

“PocketEngineer offers a unique, new approach to an age-old problem for systems integrators – providing accurate, consistent, and timely engineering quotes tocustomers by gathering accurate data the first time,” said Chris Bianchet, President of Herman Integration Services. “It can also release costly engineering resources to work on post sales projects rather than pre-sale unknowns.  We are making this solution simple, quick and reliable, while keeping pre-sales engineering costs manageable and predictable.”

The product will be demonstrated at InfoComm 2015, and information will beavailable for review at the Herman booth #4770.
