The design team provides the foundation from which extraordinary AV systems are created. Each project is engaged with a fresh and creative approach using diverse teams including engineers, draftsmen, account managers and other staff professionals who bring years of varied industry experience to each project. Ford Engineers hold degrees in electrical, mechanical, and acoustical engineering, as well as physics, theater, and computer science. They can produce system drawings, acoustical, power and mechanical recommendations, 3D room renderings, lighting plots and more to ensure accurate documentation for both the Ford installation staff and other trades involved in the project.
Project Managers live in the real world of having to make the AV systems work. Each day brings challenges, which require solutions. It is the knowledge of technology and the experience of construction that describes the best Project Managers. Execution and action, planning and scheduling, problem resolution and resource management are fundamental building blocks on which Ford Project Managers deliver outstanding systems to customers safely, on time and to specification.
The culmination of the design, planning and decision making process depends upon the physical installation of the equipment at the job site. The objective of Job Superintendents and Installation Technicians is to take the specifications, drawings and equipment and apply their craftsmanship to build a system of outstanding performance. The system is tested and commissioned by Ford Engineers and Project Managers prior to turning over to the customer.
As technology advances, AV systems are more complex, requiring customer training on how to utilize all the features and benefits. Ford provides a wide variety of customizable training including on-site, online, instruction manuals, website videos, and educational seminars. The value of the customer’s investment can only be realized when its employees are fully trained in the proper use of the system.
Ford’s Service Center is centrally managed across all locations to provide customers a 24/7 toll free number with a single point of contact and management of service requests. All service requests are logged and tracked through completion. When the Service Technician arrives at your site, the most important aspect is their experience, knowledge and determination to solve the problem. Ford’s Service Technicians represent the best in the industry with extensive training and years of experience.
