The original name of the company was Theatre System Associates. In 1992 we changed priorities, and the name was shortened as the scope of work diversified to boardrooms, teaching facilities and (wait for it) small- to medium-sized arenas - fourteen so far! It now stands for Technical Support Associate to reflect the services provided to small and medium-sized contractors in Southern and Central Ontario.
TSA frequently finds that contractors have access to the required products and have the staff to install them. However, they lack the personnel and resources for design and programming. As a result, TSA offers these services while working with the contractor to provide the system that satisfies the client's requirements, within budget and without compromise.
We can also help the contractor with the documentation, as this is an area where many contractors falter. Our forté is CAD and the writing of user instructions and technical manuals. These services are available to small and medium sized contractors throughout North America.
We will also participate in the project to the extent that we will work with the contractor to ensure that the client's requirements are met expediently. We are prepared to attend site as required, to resolve problems as well as for the project testing and commissioning to ensure that the systems operate according to the intent of the design.
