AVI-SPL Lands in Top 50 of CRN SP 500

Numbers and acronyms make for concise blog headlines, but the one above could use some explaining so you know why we’re feeling a little taller.


Each year, CRN, which covers the technology integration industry, publishes its Solution Provider 500, a ranking of the top integrators, service providers, and IT consultants in North America according to services revenue.

For 2015, AVI-SPL has come in at #46 on the SP 500, five spots better than last year’s ranking.

From an insider perspective, the improvement is to be expected. The past year has seen a renewed focus on how we communicate our service solutions to the customer, not just in terms of what they are, but also in terms of value. We’ve made similar strides in explaining these services to our sales team, so they can take that knowledge and let organizations understand that we have the talent and experience to improve their operations with AV and video communication technology and build a roadmap for continuous improvement.

Our Virtual Meeting Room services are among the offerings we think have the biggest potential to make an immediate, positive impact for companies. Take a look and contact us to start the process of efficiently bringing your staff members closer together, wherever they may be.

CRN Magazine Ranks AVI-SPL #47 on Top Solution Providers List

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.”
