AVAD D2B Program Brings High-Tech Homes to Boise

Program linking Boise builders with local integration firm responsible for installations in multiple developments


AVAD's D2B Program aids builders in the sales process and makes home technology an accessible option that can be chosen by consumers just like countertops, carpet or tile. The program also provides builders with packages that can easily be repeated throughout the scope of a development – by trained partner integrators who not only professionally install the systems, but also provide upgrades and system maintenance if needed.

AVAD's D2B program makes it easier for builders to access dozens of home electronic brands at competitive pricing. AVAD's Electronic System Contractors can install the whole gamut of home entertainment and electronic systems, including Home Theater, Whole-House Music, Lighting Control, Structured Wiring, Central Vacuum, Telephone Systems and Home Networking.

"Our builder partners know they can count on us not only for timely fulfillment, but for expertise, as well," said Bob Gartland, president of AVAD. "The combination of good execution with the most highly trained systems integration professionals in the industry is the foundation of D2B's success."

All of AVAD's Electronic Systems Contractors receive certification in systems integration and other important skills – ensuring that the company's installers and integrators are the most knowledgeable and highly trained professionals in the industry. Integrators and builders who are a part of the AVAD's D2B program also receive the benefit of receiving marketing support materials and sales training that help both the integrator and builder fully communicate the benefits of new home technology systems and lifestyle amenities.

"D2B allows us to connect with a broader marketplace via builders, which has directly increased sales for us," said Pete Hull, President of Essential Systems. "AVAD provides the best brands in the industry, excellent manufacture training and expertise – things that allow us to feel confident doing business with builders because we have the support needed to achieve success."

Armed with the training, expertise and access to the best brands on the market, AVAD's D2B program ensures that homebuilders receive cost-effective, performance-enhancing design and integration.

Currently, AVAD serves more than 9,000 dealers at 37 distribution centers throughout the United States. Several nationally known homebuilders are already partnering with AVAD Electronic Systems Contractors, including DR Horton, Kolter Communities, Lennar Homes and Centex Homes.
