Userful Honored as a Finalist in the 2019 CRN Tech Innovator Awards

The Visual Networking Platform is Recognized as an Innovative Channel Solution for Collaboration and Digital Signage

SAN RAMON, Calif. and CALGARY, Alberta, Nov. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Userful Corporation, the leading provider of AV-over-IP solutions for enhanced visual communications, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Userful as a finalist in the 2019 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. Userful’s Visual Networking Platform earned top honors in the Display – Collaboration/Signage category.

The annual CRN Awards honor innovative hardware, software and services. CRN editors evaluated hundreds of products across 34 technology categories using criteria including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve common IT challenges.

“The adoption of Userful’s Visual Networking Platform by the channel has been tremendous in the program’s inaugural year. Channel partners have embraced an AV-over-IP approach to deploy and connect video wall and corporate communications projects that eliminate unnecessary hardware and facilitate management under a single platform,” said Kevin Dillon, VP channel and alliances of Userful. “We are honored to be recognized by CRN as an innovator in collaboration and digital signage, validating Userful’s ability to provide integrators with a platform that offers a high ROI and reduces customers’ overall total cost of ownership.”

Userful’s Visual Networking Platform is the leading industry solution to effectively deliver any content from any source to any combination of screens, in real time in a centrally managed environment. The solution offers deployment options for all visual needs across an organization, either powered from an on-premise server or directly from the cloud onto a smart display (e.g., LG’s webOS). The platform’s product architecture seamlessly integrates into customers’ pre-existing systems with flexible and scalable capabilities to support visual communication and collaboration throughout global enterprise-wide deployments.

“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards honor technology vendors who work tirelessly to craft ground-breaking solutions for end users, matching the speed of the channel’s evolution,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s award categories deserve congratulations for their success in driving IT innovation forward for solution providers and their customers.”
