JDL Technologies Named "Hot Company Of The Year" For Growth And Expansion At 2013 IT Industry Awards Hosted By Network Products Guide

Stocks in this article: JCS

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JDL Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-GM: JCS), was named a 2013 Hot Company in the Growth and Expansion categories at the 8th Annual Information Technology Industry awards event hosted by Network Products Guide in Las Vegas on May 7, 2013. The awards honor the achievements of organizations in the information technology industry worldwide. JDL also won the 2013 Partner of the Year award.

JDL Technologies has experienced impressive growth in the past 12 months. With a new general manager on board, the company launched a market expansion beyond its foundation in education technology to encompass commercial business and the healthcare industry.

This expansion demanded new sales, marketing and engineering teams with experience in growth technology companies and managed information technology services to support the company's laser-focus on managed IT services. The JDL TechWatch Managed IT Services brand was launched in early 2013 with completion of construction of a state-of-the-art JDL TechWatch managed services operations center. The company also expanded its reach to Central Florida, hiring a seasoned sales manager for its new Tampa office.

With a need for additional information technology solutions to support this growth and expansion, JDL formed strategic new partnerships with technology industry leaders and young innovators to enhance its existing partner base. These relationships enable the efficient delivery of expert solutions around networking, virtualization, IT infrastructure, business continuity, encryption and security, communications and more. One new partner, Meru Networks, named JDL its 2012 North American Growth Partner of the Year.

JDL continues to nurture new opportunities in the Florida education sector, and in October 2012 the nation's fourth largest school district, Miami-Dade County, selected JDL Technologies to help bring wireless connectivity to 232 schools in a $23 Million networking project.

As a result of these initiatives, JDL Technologies has achieved excellent growth in new markets, has continued to penetrate existing markets, and is on pace to achieve robust revenue growth in 2013 and beyond.
