Automation in hotels is a major priority for hotel management companies, and no one knows that more than CCS Presentation Systems, which once again scored the #1 integrator spot in the hotel market, as ranked by Commercial Integrator MagazineCCS_Top-Hotel-Integrators

As hotels become more multi-use and automated with digital signage and entertainment options, the integration market for audio-visual solutions is growing in this vertical.

Commercial Integrator notes that to succeed in the hotel market, an integrator needs to be a partner in communication with the hotel. Starting out with a plan will help the hotel succeed in its AV solutions. If an integrator is brought in only to ‘fix a problem’ or replace another integrator, that could mean more trouble on the back end of any project, according to the magazine.

In last year’s awards, CCS also took the top spot for its work in managing installs and integration with hotels and sees further growth in the integration market for hotels. You can see some of the systems integration work that CCS did in the past to achieve this ranking.

If your business is looking for upgrades in AV solutions or other integration opportunities for digital equipment, contact CCS Presentation Systems. CCS was recently ranked by Systems Contractor News as one of the nation’s top audio visual integrators, by Commercial Integrator as the No. 1 audio visual integrator for the hospitality industry and by Ranking Arizona as the No. 2 Computer Training Center in Arizona.


CCS Presentation Systems’ CEO recently took part in helping to set up new projectors in schools at Scottsdale Unified School District. The schools are readying for the new classes of students starting on Monday August 12.  AZ-School_projector_Installation_CCS-2AZ-School_projector_Installation_CCS-1

In the pics seen here, our CCS CEO John Godbout is helping install projectors alongside his tech crew. He remarked that he’s excited that these upgraded projectors will help teachers bring more to the lessons this school year.

With more of these digital projectors going into schools, integrated digital presentations will become much more the standard. The city of Scottsdale has benefited over the past seven years with increased technology in the schools.

According the Arizona Republic, the school district has enjoyed the benefits of a property tax capital override of about $10 million that helped pay for items like playground equipment, furniture, musical equipment and textbooks. And nearly half that amount ($4.7 million) was spent on technology needs like electronic whiteboards and integrated A/V systems, including projectors like those shown.

Across the US, school districts have been putting in as much technology into the schools as budgets allow. And the pressure on school districts to emphasize teacher tech learning is on the rise, too. Taken together, this brings K-12 technology to the forefront, opening up doors for CCS Presentation Systems to bring great audio-visual solutions to schools.

CCS Presentation Systems is today one of the largest A/V integrators in the United States, serving customers in corporate, government and education markets. Our 350+ employees at sales offices in 13 states provide integration, installation, maintenance and training services for a wide variety of audio and video equipment, including LCD & plasma displays, digital projectors, interactive whiteboards, integrated room control systems, audio systems, HD video- conferencing systems and more.
