Tunbridge Wells Audi

As the primary integrator to Inchcape PLC for both data cabling and audio visual (AV) systems, MCS has completed projects at more than sixty dealerships over the past eight years. We were delighted to be invited to tender for the provision of an AV content distribution system for Inchcape’s highly prestigious new Audi dealership being built in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

Building on past success in digital content and audio distribution solutions at various Inchcape dealerships across the UK, MCS was proud to deliver its most advanced solution to date. Fourteen LED displays were installed at various locations, back office and customer facing, within the dealership. Employing network HD technology, the dealership is able to dynamically assign content from across a number of media platforms to any combination of displays located within the dealership, providing an exciting audio and visual experience to its customers.

Content can be updated with ease and can include product and service based information, promotional content, and Infotainment. The system can seamlessly integrate external media sources for special occasions, such as launch events.

Automated switch-on and standby control for all displays was implemented to add to the green credentials of an energy saving building. iPad control was included to provide an intuitive user interface. Diagnostics and updates are performed remotely via the MCS NetWorkHD (NWHD) management portal.

The meeting room incorporates an 80” LED display solution with auto-switching input selection. This ensures seamless connectivity options for collaboration and delegates during meetings.

The dealership’s sound solution provides ambient sound and music to the customer facing areas as well as messaging and PA functionality to rear-of-house areas including the workshop, valet and parts department. All control elements, such as source selection and zone volume control, are integrated into the showroom AV control system.

Full training and support ensures users are proficient in using the full potential of the system.

The MCS NWHD solution is now reliably implemented across two of Inchape’s dealerships, and there are plans to integrate a further six systems over the next twelve months. The first of these will be commissioned to VW West London which is currently under construction and will be the largest VW dealership in Europe.

"MCS continue to provide a fantastic level of technical expertise & thought leadership to Inchcape across a variety of projects within the UK.  As well as focussing primarily on our property project portfolio, including the recently unveiled Audi site in Tunbridge Wells, MCS have added huge value to other recent work, notably at our Global Head Office in St James Square, London.  The St James Square project in particular benefited from MCS’s ability to propose technical solutions outside of their normal sphere of operation, in this case focussing on Video Conferencing technologies with the introduction to Inchcape of a trusted MCS partner.

In simple terms, MCS have become our ‘go-to’ partner for key projects as well as adhoc technology advise & support, most recently demonstrated at our Global Board meeting in Surrey, whereby an emergency visit by MCS facilitated the delivery of critical presentation to the Global Inchcape Board.

I look forward to further growing our relationship, building on the great platform we have in place today."
