Avtec Celebrates 40 Years with Event Benefiting Local Nonprofit

LEXINGTON, S.C. – When you work for a software development company, daily curve balls are the norm because technology is always advancing and customer requirements are continually changing. Acknowledging this truism and in recognition of its 40-year anniversary, Avtec LLC recently hosted an afternoon celebration where executives lined up for a dunking booth to playfully accept a few curve balls of their own—all in support of a Lexington-based nonprofit organization.

Avtec hosted the recent outdoor event to thank employees and business partners for their commitment to innovation and open-standards technology. In doing so, the company sponsored children at the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter, raising funds and collecting clothing and school supplies for the Lexington-based nonprofit.

“A lot has changed for dispatch communications over 40 years, but at least one thing has stayed the same at Avtec: our commitment to delivering proven, scalable and reliable mission-critical dispatch communication solutions,” said John Rosati, Avtec vice president and director. “We appreciate the trust our customers and business partners have placed in us over the years. This event was designed to celebrate them and recognize our employees, while at that same time giving back to the community where we live and work.”

“When we developed Avtec’s Scout dispatch console technology, we based it on our clients’ need to integrate diverse voice communication tools, from land mobile radios to telephony,” stated Tim Shaffer, Avtec’s site manager. “Our model from day one relied on open standards, so that our customers have the flexibility to choose the communication devices that best meet their unique business requirements for fixed and mobile dispatch operation centers.”

“Since that time, we’ve continued to broaden our range of technology integrations, including the introduction of Avtec’s Scout Enterprise suite of software-based consoles, which can be mixed and matched to ensure command centers can count on a scalable solution that meets their needs today, with an eye towards what they may need in the future,” Shaffer continued. “Now at our 40-year mark, we’re excited to continue this journey with our customers as well as our technology and channel partners to provide an even broader range of dispatch communication solutions that provide critical situational awareness to protect communities, employees and assets.”
