About Pershing Technologies

From our start in 2009, Pershing Technologies’ vision was to be on the forefront of audiovisual collaboration technology. From the outset, we set ourselves apart from the competition by creating network-centric designs and providing the corresponding expertise in the hands-on configuration and programming needed to ensure our leading-edge design intent was executed. From the initial project concept through implementation and ongoing post-project support, we developed Pershing to become a full-service organization, including audiovisual systems design, on-site implementation and commissioning, security consulting, as well as project management.
