The achievement of InfoComm Certification by individual members of BTX's sales and support staff demonstrates their initiative and commitment to providing unmatched support, which greatly contributes to the company's "Beyond Distribution" services.

"Customers of audiovisual communications and presentation systems can be confident of professionalism and an aspiration to excellence when working with these companies that have invested in education and training to stay current on the latest A/V technologies and techniques."
