What’s all the Xytement About? Building New Recurring Revenue Streams in the Cloud.

XYTE LAVNCHLEARN

We here at rAVE like to keep up with the newest technologies and companies in AV. So who and what is Xyte? Xyte is a company developing an innovative Hardware-as-a-Service cloud platform that helps hardware vendors and their partners use the cloud to take subscription models and revenue generation to new heights.

Subscription-based business models are not novel to the AV industry. As customers grow more comfortable with cloud technologies, there has been a transition from transactional sales to complete “as-a-Service” offerings. In this LAVNCH & LEARN, Gary Kayye will talk with Xyte CEO Omer Brookstein about AV and cloud convergence, “Hardware-as-a-Service” (HaaS) and how Xyte has grown.

Join in on the fun on Tuesday, Nov. 16 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. You can register for the “What’s all the Xytement About? Building New Recurring Revenue Streams in the Cloud” LAVNCH & LEARN right here.

Get that Money, Honey: How to Effectively Negotiate a Salary or Raise

getthatmoneyhoney

On Nov. 8, Megan A Dutta took to the LAVNCH platform again with the next episode in the Girl Boss LAVNCH & LEARN Series*! The series digs into issues that really matter to women in technology and AV, such as dealing with mansplaining, salary negotiations, overcoming imposter syndrome and much more.

Did you know the gender pay gap is even worse in ProAV than it is in the general economy? In the “Get that Money, Honey: How to Effectively Negotiate a Salary or Raise” LAVNCH & LEARN, Megan A Dutta spoke with Joé Lloyd from AVIXA and Kelly McClellan from INMITTŌ Consulting, LLC to discuss what women can do to counter this problem. The trio discusses AVIXA’s study on the gender pay gap and go over how women can effectively negotiate higher compensation — whether it’s in their current position or when starting at a new place of employment.

So, how do women effectively negotiation their salary expectations and needs? After you watch the LAVNCH & LEARN, check out Kelly’s guide on unlocking the secrets of a salary. She spoke about this column and topic during the conversation, saying you need to be prepared to have a conversation, understand market values and really know what you want. Megan also spoke to Joé about a similar topic: do you stay in your current job and ask for a raise, or do you move elsewhere and request a higher salary? She says it depends on the person but offers advice on using your work experiences wisely to move up or move elsewhere.

Get these tips and tricks from these three pros in this LAVNCH & LEARN! Yes — you can still register and view the on demand event right here to get a look inside the event!

*We view using the term “Girl Boss” as taking our power back and owning it — not as something that’s demeaning to the confident, strong and smart women in tech that are a part of our industry. If you would like to have an open dialogue about this, please reach out to Megan A. Dutta at megan@theraveagency.com.
