Our Accreditations & Certifications
Professional accreditations and certifications demonstrate the competency and ability of an organisation to successfully deliver solutions and services based upon skill, knowledge and expertise.
Achieving and maintaining accreditations is a core principle of VideoCentric, and we are regularly assessed against industry, national and internationally recognised standards to ensure we operate to the highest levels of quality and service available within our marketplace.
Our vast array of accreditations and certifications confirms we are committed to excellence, and ensures that our customers can be confident in our team’s ability to deliver at every stage of the project. Stringent manufacturer certifications have always been held to the highest possible level achievable for an organisation of our type and size, ensuring our teams are highly trained in every product we sell, and can recommend, deliver, install, support and train your teams with confidence and expertise.
We would encourage any organisation to always discuss a suppliers accreditation level and ensure that any supplier meets the standards you require – in any industry, many say they can deliver, but only a few truly can.
