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.

Case Study: Zurich Insurance Group

Zurich Insurance Group’s new North America headquarters in Schaumburg, Ill., is intended to be a place where people want to work. AVI-SPL’s role in fulfilling that vision was to implement solutions that would give employees the collaborative technology that help them work — and work together — effectively. That would include meeting spaces equipped for video conferencing, audio conferencing, and presentations. It would also mean technicians and engineers applying their design and programming skills to deliver Zurich’s must-haves:

  • Technology that is simple, reliable, and intuitive
  • A consistent experience from room to room
  • Meetings that start on time

In the following link, hear from Zurich’s leaders about working with AVI-SPL and how we helped realize their vision using solutions from technology partners like Polycom, Crestron, Haivision, Shure, NEC, and Da-Lite.
