Video wall and visual display experts Ultimate Visual Solutions has seen a 10% rise in the official quotations and detailed system proposals it has been asked to supply, despite the coronavirus lockdown.

UVS managing director Steve Murphy said the increase, compared to the same period in 2019, was as a direct result of the full suite of remote access and online demonstration services which it launched at the start of the Covid-19 outbreak.

He said that the new way of working was already starting to translate into firm orders for a wide range of its products.

These include a substantial order for a large UVS Lucidity video wall controller solution for a council CCTV project, where the final demonstration to the client was made at the start of lockdown using the UVS remote demonstration facility.

Contracts also included eight new or renewed annual maintenance contracts for critical infrastructure or critical security sites.

Steve Murphy said: “During the ‘lockdown’ period from March 23rd to May 31st, UVS official quotations and detailed system proposals were 10% up in overall total project value against the same period last year.

“This has demonstrated the usefulness and effectiveness of the investment we made in the remote demonstration facility and the benefit it has brought to our clients, both integration partners and their end clients.”

During the lockdown period, UVS has continued to physically deliver major critical control room video wall projects, in strict accordance with all government and its own health and safety experts’ guidelines.
