Video Visions, a privately held small business currently headquartered in Trevose, Pennsylvania, partnered up with Expert Technology Associates (ETA) in 2005 to improve their voice communication services. Specializing in video walls, systems, and large screen displays, Video Visions projects can be found around the globe - in broadcast facilities, Fortune 500 companies, universities, sports arenas, and government facilities. Due to the strict deadlines and time-sensitive environment that they work in, Video Visions, Inc. is committed to forming lasting relationships with all of their customers through efficient, responsive communication at all times. ETA has been their advocate in helping them achieve a reputation for being incredibly responsive to their customers’ ever-changing needs.
This partnership between Video Visions and ETA was tested in the summer of 2013 when Video Visions’ president, Mary Ellen Milanese-DiStasio made the decision to move her company to a new facility. “We made the decision to proceed with ETA at our new location because they had done such a good job in servicing and supporting our phone systems up to that point,” Milanese-DiStasio noted.
ETA was challenged with the task of moving an entire voice communications platform to a new facility during major construction, all while ensuring service was up and running at all times.
In light of the upcoming move, ETA arraigned a meeting with Video Visions to discuss the best options for their new location – options that would inevitably affect their daily communications with customers and vendors. Milanese-DiStasio stated, “This meeting was an invaluable asset because they were actually able to teach us, and we put our trust into them for that.”
“We worked with Video Visions from design to implementation to ensure all of their cabling, carrier, and telephony needs were met,” stated ETA’s Director of Sales, Tony Rossi.
ETA used the discoveries found in this meeting to create a communications solution that would adhere to both their in-house and remote employees. This preparation set ETA up for what would be a very successful installation.
“Every step of the way ETA was out there. They worked around the general contractors that were putting in ceiling tiles. They were able to get everything done and met all of our deadlines,” added Milanese-DiStasio.
From the very beginning of their relationship, ETA acted as Video Visions’ advocate. Because ETA understood how critical uninterrupted client communication is for their ongoing reputation and success, they were able to design a voice communications platform that enabled Video Visions to meet the high demands of their clients.
Milanese-DiStasio stated: “We are in an industry where people need answers and they want answers immediately. If you’re not available and that phone’s not working, things come to a standstill. We have been able to provide our customers with the immediate response time that they want and need because of a system that we purchased with ETA.”

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
