As the founder of CIS, Rudy Kern knows first-hand the challenges Integrators are facing in today’s changing landscape. After running a successful Integration company for over 10 years, Rudy searched in vain to find a reliable option he could confidently deploy throughout his growing list of projects.

After working with numerous brand-name solutions ranging from entry level to top of the line commercial products, it became clear there was a gap in the market and a need for a fully configured solution – not just another piece of hardware.

Faced with a lack of options and a need for knowledge, Rudy pursued recognized network training, researched alternative hardware solutions and rigorously tested the configurations in real-world installations until he found the winning formula.

From this CIS was born and with it a product offering that we are confident will provide Integrators with the quality and reliability they need.
