AVI-SPL Makes the CRN Solutions Provider 500 for 2017

For the second consecutive year, AVI-SPL has placed 51st on the 2017 CRN Solution Provider 500 list, CRN’s annual ranking of the largest solution providers by revenue in North America. The ranking is based on the revenues of top integrators, service providers, and IT consultants.  From CRN’s AVI-SPL entry:

AVI-SPL is a red-hot systems integrator that is quickly approaching the $1 billion revenue mark. The unified communications specialist was acquired by private equity firm H.I.G. Capital in April 2016 and has since made multiple acquisitions, including that of broadcasting platform specialist VideoLink in January and of Anderson Audio Visual in November.

Those acquisitions are part of AVI-SPL’s global expansion over the past six months, which includes our new office in Frankfurt, Germany, and partnership with Connected Vision Group, which helps us serve companies throughout Australia.

And there’s more to come, which we’ll be announcing at next week’s InfoComm event in Orlando. If you can’t make it to the Orange County Convention Center, add this blog to your favorites for updates.
