SARASOTA, FL (January 20, 2021)—Sarasota-based Audio Video Partners (AVP) and Wicked Smart Homes (WSH) recently formed a strategic alliance. The referral partnership is designed to maximize the strengths of both companies.
“Over the last few years we have intentionally evolved our business to focus on commercial projects,” explains Luke Anderson, Partner at Audio Video Partners. “This has been no simple task as AVP has a long history of doing residential work, and large projects for high-end custom homes can sometimes take a year or longer to complete.”
“Not only that,” adds Kevin Tippen, Partner at Audio Video Partners, “but we wanted to find the right partner to form a strategic relationship rather than shut down that side of our business or put it up for sale.”
Going forward AVP will refer their high-end residential business opportunities to Wicked Smart Homes. This includes service calls and system upgrades for AVP’s high-end residential clients as well as referrals for new business from current clients and other strategic business partners.
With regard to commercial business opportunities, WHS intends to reciprocate:
“We are thrilled to partner with AVP to continue offering their valued clients unparalleled design, sales and support for all of their home technology needs. We look forward to welcoming AVP clients to the Wicked Smart Homes family. Likewise, we are committed to referring commercial inquires to AVP and have full confidence their ability to handle those projects.”
