Collaborative Design with Building Information Modeling

When contributing to a project design where multiple teams are involved, coordination is the key. Each team needs to open a clear line of communication in order to allow for full project compatibility and accountability. Like the pieces of a puzzle, elements such as electrical, plumbing, and room layouts must fit together in harmony. Considering that each of these elements comes from a different project development team, communication through one common medium is the best way for each team to ensure their “puzzle pieces” fit properly with the rest. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that uses digital representations

The Mobile Transport Cart: Innovation on Wheels

When it comes to the product development process, the thing that impresses me the most is that initial spark. It’s the birthplace of innovation, and that “AHA!” moment that spirals into the creation of a problem-solving product. It’s a thought process evolution of, “This could be easier. This SHOULD be easier. But how?” There’s an opportunity with each challenge, and that is exactly what happened at Premier Mounts when our design team began the process of developing our new Mobile Transport Cart (MTC). We’ve held long-standing partnerships with members of the Rental & Staging industry, and in one of our consultations, we

The Product Development Process: One Part Bruce Banner, One Part Incredible Hulk

I don’t have a job that requires breaking things just to see when they break. I have to admit, it sounds kind of awesome. Since I enjoy things that are awesome, I recently went to our Engineering Department to see why breaking things is one of the keys to designing a quality product. The Product Development Process is one of the key components to the overall Premier Mounts experience. It’s the process through which Questions design Answers, and Challenges become the source of Solutions. The concept for a new mounting solution is usually formed in one of two ways: An

Underwriters Laboratories® Sets the Standard

Diving into the world of Underwriters Laboratories® (UL) can be more overwhelming than trying to maneuver a shopping cart through Costco on a Saturday afternoon. It isn’t to say that there’s anything wrong with the UL website or their processes, there’s just so much information that it’s easy to get a bit lost. That’s why we’ve created this little cheat sheet on the details of UL standards for you. See it as your tour guide through the rabbit hole. For starters, what IS Underwriters Laboratories? The Underwriters Laboratories is an organization that provides product safety testing and certification. It was

Dial “M” for Mount Specialist: A One-Stop Shop for Customer Care

I’m so familiar with the protocol of automated service lines that I generally just dial the 800 number and set my phone on speaker, ready to reach over and dial 0 for the operator as soon as they ask me what language I speak. In fact, I can’t help feeling like I’ve gotten “great” service if I only have to press 0 once, because nothing annoys me more than the “let us know what you’re calling about, so that I can direct you to the correct department” line. Especially when it’s followed by the “I’m sorry, I’m a computer. Can

How To Do Your Job in Less Time

I once spent an entire Saturday in the wrong day. I did all of the Sunday things, planning for an early evening to prepare for Monday’s “work-tivities.” Meanwhile it was Saturday the entire time, and I had no idea. Once I discovered my mistake, I spent the remainder of my new-found Saturday excitedly telling people it was, in fact, only SATURDAY, and that there was a whole Sunday to look forward to tomorrow. They responded by staring at me blankly and much like there was something wrong with me, but I didn’t care, because I had just stumbled upon the

Accelerate Learning with Key AV Tools

We all learn differently. We act differently, we respond differently and we communicate differently. Variety is very much the spice of life. BUT- it can also cause roadblocks for the ways in which we absorb information. Some people can see something once and remember it, while others study it for days on end only to vaguely recall a small fraction of the information. While some of that is based on IQ levels, optimal memory retention is achieved by also maximizing one of three possible learning styles: Visual, Auditory, or Kinesthetic. In the educational market, engaging students through all three learning

I’m Not Good At Keeping Secrets: A Sneak Peak at Our Booth #C6810 for InfoComm 2014

After months of keeping my mouth shut about our exciting booth lineup for InfoComm, I’ve been given the go ahead to reveal a few of this year’s highly anticipated product releases. This is a huge relief on my part, because I’m terrible at keeping secrets and my poker face is on par with a Golden Retriever trying to pretend it’s not excited you’re home from work. They wouldn’t let me disclose the full “Hot List” just yet, because we have a few surprises up our sleeves and one more BIG Industry First that we are, wait for it: GIVING AWAY
