AVI-SPL has landed number 47 on CRN magazine’s 2012 Solution Provider 500, a list recognizing the largest technology integrators, service providers and IT consultants in North America by revenue.
CRN’s Solution Provider 500 is the most up-to-date and comprehensive ranking of solution providers in the market. Formerly known as the VAR500, the name was changed to reflect how VARs (value-added resellers) have extended their reach into integration, solution selling and service providing, becoming increasingly responsible for fulfilling more and more of their customers’ IT requirements. CRN magazine provides news, analysis and perspective on the technology reseller channel, including product resellers, solution providers, product vendors, distributors and customers.
In 2009, AVI-SPL debuted at number 133 on CRN’s list of solution providers and jumped to number 48 in 2011. AVI-SPL joins some esteemed company in making CRN’s Solution Provider 500 top 50, including IBM, Xerox and Dell.
“It means a lot to AVI-SPL to be ranked among such respected IT consultants, technology resellers and service providers,” said AVI-SPL CEO John Zettel. “AVI-SPL has historically been known as the largest AV systems integrator, but in recent years we’ve transformed our business model to encompass wider communications solutions. Now we reach beyond traditional AV integration to offer comprehensive video communications solutions from managed conferencing services, digital content delivery and complete unified communications solutions.”
