Audio Visual Maintenance Service T & C (“Terms”)

Last Amended: March 11, 2020

Audio visual installations and equipment supplied by OneTouch are built for remarkable performance and unparalleled reliability, but for the perfect performance day in and day out it must be ensured that the equipment is properly maintained by regular cleaning, adjustment, Firmware update etc. This is particularly important for those very intensive applications in the audiovisual systems.

Your audio visual installation is a vital part of your AV automation.

Audio Visual Maintenance service is one of those understated services operating quietly in the background. No one will notice that the equipment is working at peak performance everyday but just wait for the first time 20 people arrive for the special event and music does not play!

The OneTouch AV Preventative Maintenance Program is probably the most comprehensive maintenance program available in the industry today. The program was recently redesigned to take into account all the benefits of the new technology used in the audio visual automation systems. Today, the equipment is more complex, more reliable, considerably better value, used 24/7 and often has to work with more varied accessories.  As a result we have placed more emphasis upon preventative maintenance and ensure that your equipment works at peak performance. The program features, 24/7 response, four maintenance visits a year for cleaning and adjustment, a 4 hour response service, loaner equipment, priority technical support, replacement equipment.

Clients that have budgeted for our maintenance program can be certain that they will not receive unwelcome surprises along the way – we take care of everything at a competitive price recognizing today’s economic reality.

You have invested your hard earned dollars to automate your office, home, cottage and classrooms – Make sure you protect your investment for a few dollars more. By doing regular audio visual maintenance service you are increasing the lifespan and reliability of your equipment. There are not much of a differences in maintaining the roof of a building or maintaining the audio visual equipment. In a mission critical installations – if your system doesn’t work what’s the value of your investment? Imagine you have an investor’s meeting and your presentation system doesn’t work in the board room!
