AVI-SPL, the world’s leading video communications provider, today announced it has been recognized by UBM Tech Channel as a part of CRN’s 2013 Solution Provider 500 list, which identifies the top technology integrators in North America based on revenue size. AVI-SPL placed #49 in the annual ranking, landing in the top 50 for the third straight year.
Formerly known as the VAR 500, the Solution Provider 500 (SP500) ranks the highest producing solution provider organizations in the IT channel from hardware sales, software sales, and managed IT services.
“AVI-SPL is proud to be listed among such well-respected companies within the IT channel,” said AVI-SPL CEO John Zettel. “Over the past few years AVI-SPL has made significant investments in expanding our solutions to go beyond traditional AV in order to manage the complete meeting environment. AVI-SPL can accomplish that from designing a system, installing a display to monitoring the room while also creating new products and services that dynamically change the conferencing environment.”
“As IT organizations become more involved in the decision making process for AV projects, it is important that integrators adapt to the new landscape,” said Mike Brandofino, executive vice president of video and UC, AVI-SPL. “Our relevancy to be listed among the top 50 stems from our understanding of the IT space and ability to provide total collaboration solutions across corporate network environments.”
“We aim to highlight the ‘best of the best’ among the channel community, and the Solution Provider 500 is no exception. Now in its 18th year, this prestigious list serves as a valuable industry resource to help end-users quickly identify top performers and make the most well-informed choices for their business,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “The companies listed have a forward-thinking approach to solutions sales. They are also highly dedicated to putting their customers’ needs first to accelerate the adoption of innovative technology and drive immediate results.
