Why Kinly?

We are a global provider of AV integration services & support

Kinly is an industry-leading integrator of audio visual and unified communication solutions and a globally trusted technology advisor to world-class organisations. For over 25 years, we have been designing, engineering, integrating and supporting complex audio-visual solutions. Global companies rely on us to deliver secure and flexible meeting experiences, every time.

With over 2,500 customers successfully supported around the world, our team of 1,100 employees have the skills and experience to identify your needs and deliver the most efficient solutions for your business. We are positioned to take on projects that stretch across multiple borders with offices in seven countries and 24/7 support. This allows us to deliver solutions optimised for total consistency across your entire value chain.

Our Approach

We use a 360-degree, people-first approach that goes far beyond the delivery of technology solutions. With considerable experience and knowledge of human behaviour in collaborative environments, we define needs based on people, process and technology. This is our proven strategy, deeply anchored in customer success and decades of AV experience.

By focusing on user behaviour, ease of use, reliability and security, we ensure that you get exactly the right combination of tools and solutions that allow you to meet, collaborate and share content. While we partner with all the world’s top suppliers, we are vendor-independent. This means that we can choose from the best range of solutions that meet your exact needs.

 

Consultancy

From your very first meeting with us, we will act as your trusted consultant, identifying your challenges and how to solve them, as well as your goals and how to achieve them. 

Solution Design

Using intelligence gathered at the consultancy phase, our design team will develop a solution that meets your physical, technical and support requirements.

Build & Integrate

Collaboration and consistency are at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to delivering your AV project on time, fully documented and within in budget.

Support & Manage

As a Kinly customer, our support for you and your global enterprise solution stretches well beyond the installation phase. The level of support is completely up to you, with services including Helpdesk Support, Maintenance, Remote- and on-site managed services.

Track & improve

We ensure your people are equipped through hybrid or on-site training, resources and tools, that teach your people how to use the technology at their disposal effectively to secure a positive return on your investment. 

Understanding your workplace

The seismic shift in the workplace dynamic presents new challenges, and therefore opportunities, for businesses to capitalise on. Chief among them, redesigning the office space to make it a social destination for employees by seamlessly connecting them with those in the building and those working remotely.

We have the expertise, resource and capacity required to gain a full understanding of your workplace and goals. By collaborating with your teams, we design, integrate and support leading-edge AV solutions that work to create and improve inclusivity, sustainability and morale. All our workplace design solutions come together to enable you to increase staff happiness, streamline day-to-day business operations and attract and retain the best talent.
