Utelogy has seen dramatic growth of over 280% over the last 12 months and has been focused on delivering its platform to End Users, AV/UC Integrators and Managed Services Providers to remotely manage all types of UC, AV & IT devices in the modern workplace. According to Futuresource Research, the AV Managed Service market alone is set to grow to $4.3b by 2024 and we see this service proposition extending further into the workplace.

Utelogy is deployed globally by customers across Corporate, Investment Banking, Government, Technology and Higher Education. The Utelogy Platform delivers significantly improved user experience, proven long term cost-savings, and provides actionable insights into how technology and real-estate is being engaged and utilized across the entire estate.

“In a post-pandemic world as employees return to the hybrid workplace our customers are looking to ensure all technology users enjoy a great experience and therefore need a toolset to help increase uptime, monitor and manage technology proactively as well as deliver deep analytics and user insights. With Utelogy’s acquisition of CloudThinQ, our technology will deliver on the combined vision of allowing everyone in the connected workspace to be first class participants,” explains Kevin Morrison, CEO of Utelogy.

We have been working closely with CloudThinQ in the last couple of years and both technically and culturally the fit is perfect.
