EPA was very strategic in working with the other contractors and making sure our needs were being met as the project (Integrated Science Center) moved forward. The many hours spent up front, working with stakeholders paid off in the end with a project that was on budget and on time. EPA's team of sales, engineering and installation experts was critical in choosing them. We needed a turn-key, integrated solution for learning technology across the entire facility. We feel EPA achieved this with the equipment package and training they delivered.

Working with EPA on our new clinical sciences building was an absolute pleasure. The project manager, Doug, was very thorough, patient, and considerate of time while we worked through the install and any potential issues that arose. He is still involved and easily accessible when needed, and most of all I really appreciated all of the communication and continual status updates. The programmer, Aaron, is one of the most knowledgeable programmers I have ever met. The interface he created for the nursing camera matrix is easy to use, intuitive, and is exactly what we asked for. The entire team that was on site was well mannered, clean, smart, and seemed to enjoy what they were doing. I really appreciate everything that EPA has done for us and happily recommend EPA for anyone looking for a quality A/V install.

EPA Audio Visual played a critical role in all aspects of technology related to our new stadium Preview Center and adjacent Board Room. They are always very responsive to our needs and special requests.

From start to finish, EPA's sales, design, engineering, and installation team provided exceptional service. It was clear to me on Day 1, as well as on the last day of the project, that our success was of utmost importance to every member of their team. You are in good hands with EPA Audio Visual.

I had the opportunity to work with EPA on a number of projects while IT Director at Viterbo University (La Crosse, WI). EPA provided excellent pre-sales consulting - listening to needs, discussing options, etc., - and then cost-effectively partnered with the university to stop through projects. The advanced engineering and installation was among the best I have seen in the business.

Thank you again, Nate, for being here for training. Your time in working with us goes above and beyond the scope of your job and it is appreciated. Also, your installers have such a good rreputation in our District. From our teachers, principals, and custodians, I consistently hear how professional the installers are when they work in our buildings. We have noticed the pride they take in their installations (tight cables, well placed, clean lines, etc.) and the 'just right' tweaks that they do so every detail is covered. Our teachers are very particular with attention to detail in their classrooms. Frequently, they comment with positive feedback of how good the installers were working in their classrooms and that they take the time to show the teachers how to use the system. I work with a number of vendors and am proud to bring you and your team into our schools. I truly appreciate EPA's time and attention.

This year BlueCross BlueShield of MN began a refresh of all our aged audio visual equipment. We upgraded Crestron systems, installed 42 inch monitors in huddle rooms, added RoomView® to all of our schedulable conference rooms, and installed TeamBoards. Quentin McDermid, our sales representative from EPA, coordinated EPA's efforts flawlessly. We are still getting "Thank Yous" from our business associates for adding the collaboration tools they needed.

EPA Audio Visual is one of the best vendors that I've had the pleasure to work with. They truly care about their customers, and do all they can do to meet the customer's needs. Our sales rep, Jay Shearer, stops by on occasion to see if he can help or if we need something. We have been working with Jay and EPA for about 4 or 5 years now, and we are really happy with all the work they have done. Recently, we converted one of our computer labs into an interactive room. The room was installed to the specification, all the extra wires were well hidden and neat, and they are willing to stand behind their work, even when we changed our mind on how the room should be set up. I do recommend EPA for all your classroom needs. We feel EPA is more than just a vendor, they are a friend, there to take care of your needs.

I would like to thank you for all of the help you gave me in acquiring a wireless tablet. Your company has been absolutely great to work with. You answered all of my questions the same day I emailed them to you and you always let me know what the status of my order was. Thanks again and I will let my colleagues know about your great customer service.

I worked with Jay Shearer and EPA Audio Visual on the highly successful $15.8 million School of Nursing building at Viterbo University. Jay successfully coordinated the engineering revisions with Chad Pingel and user interface programming by Aaron Larson while ensuring installation deadlines were met. The result was the EPA provided easy to use, high quality, and reliable audio visual equipment for the building. Jay served beyond the typical sales role by developing a true business relationship that continues serving Viterbo student today.
