HTSA Adds ACT Technologies and Sound Xperience as Members
HTSA, ahead of its fall conference later this month in Chicago, has announced a pair of new dealer members. The members are Nashville's ACT Technologies and Philadelphia's Sound Xperience.
ACT is a division created by ACT Security, while Sound Xperience was founded by HiFi House veteran Paul Sandquist, after that integrator closed earlier this year.
"For us it's more than just installing product; it's about customer empowerment," Matt Grant, Director of Technologies for ACT Technologies, said as part of the announcement.
"From helping our clients get more out of their iPhones and iPads to designing some of the most complex and technically sound home theater and automation systems, ACT Technologies has become a trusted resource for guiding individuals through today's high-tech maze."
"We believe that you don't have to spend big to go big," Paul Sandquist said in a statement. "We pride ourselves on providing customers with truly premium audio, video and home automation solutions, available at any budget. With longstanding manufacturer relationships, a keen eye for design and detail as well as top-shelf customer service, Sound Xperience is turning home tech dreams into a reality."
HTSA Managing Director Bob Hana welcomed the new members to HTSA.
"Connected home, smart home, 'Internet of Things' - these phrases are here to stay. The benefits and convenience of a fully-integrated space are what today's consumers crave, making it critical that we align ourselves with the professionals who excel in the CE space," Bob Hana, Managing Director of HTSA, said as part of the announcement.
"We are thrilled to join forces with ACT Technologies and Sound Xperience, both have a proven track record for success, including a multitude of experience selling and servicing technologies that matter most; from IT and security to multi-room A/V and control systems. We welcome their fresh perspectives, ideas and contributions to organization-wide initiatives; their enthusiasm will be a valued addition to our network.
