“The new SnapAV team has moved quickly since merging with Control4 and is already delivering on our commitment to this industry,” said SnapAV CEO John Heyman. “The first step toward becoming the ultimate partner for the industry begins with introducing new products and making more of our products easily accessible to all of our dealers.”
For the first time, a curated selection of popular SnapAV products is available on the Control4 Dealer Portal, making it easy and convenient for dealers to shop on the same platform they use today, while benefitting from the company’s best-in-class service and support.
