“We are pleased to welcome a leader in audiovisual technology like Integrated Audio Systems (IAS) to the Pearl Technology family,” Gary P. Pearl, chairman/CEO of Pearl Companies, said. “Adding IAS to our core capabilities positions us for future growth across the nation and brings even more services to current customers. We also look forward to additional opportunities with new customers and partners as a result.”
Pearl added that videoconferencing has become more important to clients than ever, and all the divisions of Pearl Technology are strengthened by the addition of audiovisual integration. “Our primary goal is to help others with the services they may not be able to take care of themselves. In many cases, we can offer these capabilities more efficiently and cost-effectively than they could manage on their own,” he said.
Jeremy Caldera, CEO of IAS, also expressed his excitement. “I’m looking forward to working with an even bigger client base and to have the support of the IT team at Pearl Technology. Adding audiovisual integration helps Pearl Technology to offer a complete solution for clients needing both A/V and IT services.”
