Arvig Wins ''Excellence in Marketing'' Award

October 23, 2017

Arvig, the area’s leading broadband provider, was awarded the “Excellence in Marketing” Community Award by Continuum, the exclusive provider of a vertically integrated IT management platform that enables providers to scale rapidly and profitably. 

Continuum has more than 5,800+ partners worldwide, and Arvig was one of 16 partners presented with awards this year.

“We are honored to receive this award from Continuum,” said Lisa Greene, Director of Marketing at Arvig. “It’s not something we expected, especially as a small provider among much larger companies. Our entire marketing team has worked hard to develop engaging marketing campaigns to connect with potential customers who can benefit from our services. I’m proud to see their research, planning, and creativity recognized.”

Arvig was presented with the award at Continuum’s annual user conference, Navigate 2017 in Las Vegas. The Excellence in Marketing award recognizes the partner with the best marketing campaigns and use of Continuum’s marketing tools. On behalf of the Arvig marketing team, Michael Baso and Robby Olson accepted the award on stage with Continuum CEO Michael George.

“Effective marketing and lead generation pose significant challenges in the [managed service provider] market today, and we’re always looking for those businesses that are doing things differently and driving real results,” said Mary Crogan, Continuum’s VP of Marketing. “Arvig is one of those businesses that has clearly raised the bar and we’re thrilled to honor their accomplishments with this award.”

Arvig has been working with Continuum for nearly three years. The partnership allows Arvig to provide robust managed IT services to businesses, including proactive network monitoring and management, and backup and disaster recovery services.
