EXETER, RI, February 27, 2020 – NWN Carousel, a leading national IT, managed services, and cloud provider with an unwavering focus on ensuring customer success, has once again received the AVIXA AV Provider of Excellence, or APEx, designation. The AVIXA APEx program is a recognition program for integration companies and AV design consulting firms dedicated to upholding industry excellence by providing quality service to customers.

The AVIXA APEx program recognizes companies based on the number of employees holding key industry certifications, including AVIXA’s CTS credential, completion of continuing education classes, and positive customer survey responses. APEx providers must also prove that they meet or exceed the requirements within 2 ANSI/INFOCOMM standards, the Standard Guide for Audiovisual Systems Design and Coordination Processes and the AV System Performance Verification Standard, to foster better communication between the AV provider and the client.

“Carousel continues to place a high premium on strict adherence to quality processes, as well as the ongoing training and certification to help our AV customers realize the most value from their investments,” said Rhonda Wingate, VP of Visual Collaboration Sales, Carousel. “We have worked hard as an organization to prioritize quality of service, while developing and furthering our deep technical expertise and meeting the highest professional standards in the industry across all services. We are proud of our growing Visual Communication and AV team on receiving this recognition from AVIXA for the fourth consecutive year.”
