Leading Solutions partners with Salamander Designs
AV Hardware supplier, Leading Solutions, has announced today an exciting distribution partnership across New Zealand with interactive display stands and specialty AV furniture experts, US based Salamander Designs. Initially Leading Solutions will focus on electronic height adjustable rolling stands, aimed specifically at interactive products Microsoft Surface Hub and Cisco Webex (ex-Spark). These stands will ensure that collaboration is at the focal point of every discussion, allowing delegates to interact more effectively with the Interactive Flat Panels as they move around the meeting room space. Experts in designing innovative and specialised furniture for the AV industry for over 25 years, Salamander is renowned for the manufacturing of interactive display stands and accessories, which are crafted to be flexible and highly durable. Salamander have a range of Mounts which offer ergonomics to complement any touch screen display and manual assist mounts for displays up to 84”, with specific products for the Surface Hub 2S through an already established partnership with Microsoft. Currently, Salamander is a partner to not only Microsoft for the Surface Hub 2S, but also with other top brands such as: Crestron, Logitech, Newline, Dell, Sharp, Sony, Volanti, Screen Innovations & Avocor. Unified Communications is currently driving the demand for R.D.A.V. (Rapidly Deployable Audio Visual) systems and furniture within New Zealand. This trend is expected to grow exponentially in the foreseeable future as the need of AV integrators and commercial architects to create highly collaborative environments, requires furniture that can be integrated with Zoom, Microsoft Teams or any other video conferencing system the end user deploys. Lee Taylor, of Leading Solutions NZ Ltd, explains; “This partnership with Salamander Designs enables us to create added value for our customers with their height adjustable rolling stands and range of bespoke products, which will enhance interactive capabilities for both the Microsoft Surface Hub and Cisco Spark (Webex). One specific product we are excited about is the new Unifi™ Huddle Table range which integrates AV racking and associated components into elegant office furniture, ideal for creating truly collaborative huddle spaces. Therefore, this exciting partnership gives New Zealand access to a world-renowned brand of AV furniture with local support of the highest calibre, as proven by our recent inclusion as a finalist in the Westpac Business Awards for Customer Excellence.” Paul Sabbah, Director of International Sales at Salamander Designs, says; “Salamander is excited to partner with the Leading Solutions team to bring our specialised furniture to New Zealand. Leading Solutions’ strategic focus on Collaboration and Unified Communications dovetails perfectly with Salamander’s specialty of building premium furniture for the modern workplace.” Leading Solutions, based in Auckland, is fast becoming a local leader in RDAV furniture and this new partnership with a brand as well-known as Salamander Designs, has now cemented them as a key supplier to the commercial AV market.
