For Projection's Clients, Help is Just One Click Away

Simon-On-Site is Projection's new Help! button that presenters and meeting planners can press when they need audiovisual/tech support in a breakout room


Projection, a national audiovisual company, today announced its Help! button, Simon-On-Site, further demonstrating the company’s commitment to world-class customer service. With a quick push of the button, a presenter or meeting planner can alert the AV team that help is needed, and within moments, a technician appears.

Simon-On-Site Help! buttons were used at ASAE’s Annual Meeting in August. In one breakout room, when the presenter pressed the button and a technician responded, the attendees broke out in cheer.

“The traditional model of having members of the team walk around the hallways – and putting the onus on presenters to find them – wasn’t addressing issues quickly enough,” said Karen Cuviello, corporate vice president, Projection. “One of our values is ‘client-first,’ so we set out to design a tool that enables both meeting planners and presenters to seamlessly and easily get the support they need in real-time. We intentionally kept Simon-On-Site simple; there is no need for training or any level of tech expertise. It’s literally pushing a button.”  

How it works

Projection leveraged cutting-edge Cellular and Cloud-based IOT technology to design this completely stand-alone solution. Each Simon-On-Site button has its own lithium battery power supply and built-in 4G wireless modem, so clients don’t have to worry about Wi-Fi connections or plugs in the building or breakout rooms. That means there is no additional cost to clients for Wi-Fi or any network configuration; the buttons are a complimentary tool to enhance the customer service experience.

Given the stand-alone nature of the buttons, clients who are having smaller meetings can use the tool for a direct line to their tech team. On the other side of the spectrum, meetings with dozens of breakout rooms can put a button in each so every presenter in that room throughout the conference has real-time access to an expert.

While many of the meetings Projection supports do have dedicated technicians in each breakout room to support presenters and ensure flawless in-room execution, not every meeting or client require it. For these latter events, Simon-On-Site is an ideal solution to ensure presenters have near real-time support when they need it.

Cuviello continued, “At Projection, we aim to execute flawless events, and having presenters and attendees sit in a room and wait for tech support is anything but flawless. We are proud of our nearly 50-year history of exceeding expectations, and will continue to look for ways we can enhance our clients and their attendees’ experience at Projection-supported meetings.”
