AVTECH’s Yearly Review: What Our 2022 Looked Like

Despite continued global uncertainty since the COVID-19 pandemic, 2022 was still a very successful and transformative year for AVTECH. The challenges the current situation around the world presented have dramatically increased the capabilities of our incredible team. The use of our Room Alert products has expanded considerably in terms of customers, geography and unique applications. We are in a stronger position than ever before with additional expansion anticipated in 2023. Here are some brief highlights of our major milestones from this year.

Looking To 2023

We are starting the new year off right with the launch of our new Room Alert bundles with a limited-time promo. Currently running until February 28th, 2023, we are offering significant discounts on our 4 tiers (Foundation, Essentials, Guardian and Responder) of bundle options on our Room Alert 32S and Room Alert 12SR monitors. In addition to bundles, we anticipate the launch of a number of substantial new features early in 2023 that will truly revolutionize how our customers can monitor Room Alert from anywhere in the world.  

Our team is so excited for what’s to come this year. Since 1988, our goal continues to be striving to make our entire Room Alert product offering the absolute best tool for preventing and minimizing costly environmental downtime.
