Dublin, OH – We’re pleased to share that we have received a strategic investment from Bridgepointe Technologies, a tech advisory firm that helps mid-market and enterprise companies transform tech investments into unrivaled business results.
Building on our 40-year history as one of the most prominent voice communications companies in the Midwest, the investment will enable us to leverage the marketing and operational assets of Bridgepointe and offer a broader range of solutions and services.
“Parallel’s white-glove service model and 40-year track record of helping clients navigate the ever-changing tech landscape made them an ideal investment for Bridgepointe,” explained Scott Evars, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Bridgepointe. “The firm’s deep commitment to its employees is closely aligned with our culture, and they truly are the perfect partner for us to expand our reach in Ohio and the Midwest.” Founded in 1983, we serve a vast array of clients, from Midwest-based global Fortune 500 companies in manufacturing and healthcare, to regional universities and professional services firms, to local school districts and government agencies. Since 2020, we have been employee-owned, and this approach has helped the company continue to thrive.
