SARASOTA, FL—Three employees of Sarasota-based Audio Video Partners (AVP) achieved Salto Software Certification, the company announced today.

Kevin Tippen, Ken Sheaffer, and Scott Byrd all successfully completed a two-day course on Salto’s standard system. The first day delivered instruction and training on the equipment, its functionality and physical installation procedures, while the second day covered software and system deployment. Additionally, Ken and Kevin completed training on Salto’s new KS system, which enables cloud-based management.

“Salto is the recognized leader in the industry,” said Kevin Tippen, an AVP ownership partner and one of the Commercial Account Managers. “We’re only interested in using the best technology in all our installations, so getting certified by Salto was the obvious choice. They’ve become one of our preferred access control manufacturers.”

In addition to recognizing the professionalism and skill of the AVP team, this certification means AVP’s projects are now registered with Salto, which in turn enables them to take advantage of special pricing and pass those savings on to customers.
