(OTC BB:CSWI.OB) announced today that it was recognized for continued effort in efficiencies and processes, the U.S. Installer of the Year at the recent Promethean Partner conference. This award recognizes the organization that has provided the best installation experiences to its customers. Over the last year, CSI has utilized a blend of its own installation teams along with third party resources to set a precedence for customer service through the commitment of delivering products, installation services, and client communication to a higher standard than competitors as well as other Promethean resellers. To further improve the process, CSI warehouses the Promethean products in order to stage the delivery and assure that all products arrive at the customer site ready for installation.
“Promethean has had a long-standing partnership with the CSI team and we are pleased to be able to recognize them for their commitment to providing a positive implementation experience as customers integrate our exciting technologies into their classrooms,“ said Mark Elliott, President of North America.
The Promethean board is a key component in CSI’s Connected Classroom. Other technologies in the Connected Classroom include projectors, audio augmentation, document cameras, interactive student voting devices, and teacher workstations. CSI has been a Promethean partner since 2004 and has provided Promethean boards to more than 20,000 classrooms in the Carolinas and Alabama.
“This recognition is the direct result of hard work in sales, delivery, and management to strive for excellence, and constantly evaluate and make changes for the better. With CSI deploying the connected classrooms whether it be Promethean Boards or supporting product we will continue to evolve the connected classroom to ensure the educational market will have technology for today as well as tomorrow. In doing so, we have the opportunity to impact the quality of education for generations to come. I want to thank everyone for their hard work this year.
