ABINGDON, Va. – December 4, 2018 – Wize Solutions LLC, an IT services provider with a mission to create sustainable employment opportunities in rural communities in Virginia, has been named in the 2018 NVTC Tech 100 list by the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC), the membership and trade association for the technology community in Northern Virginia and Greater Washington. The NVTC Tech 100 are the companies and individuals who are driving tech innovation, implementing new solutions for their customers, and leading growth in the Greater Washington region.

“We are more than honored to be recognized by the NVTC for our work trying to change the model for underserved rural areas in Virginia, especially because we launched just a year ago,” said Wendy Marquez, co-founder. “The changes we are trying to make across Virginia are important not only for those who live in areas that don’t provide access to a solid career path or opportunities, but also for the companies who are in need of highly skilled IT professionals at a reasonable cost.”

Wize Solutions offers cybersecurity, quality assurance, software development and testing, cloud consulting, and data management services to America’s top organizations.

“We aim to tie urban and suburban economic growth to the proven resources of the rural workforce, specifically in areas like Southwest Virginia where they need an economic boost,” Marquez continued. “We help some of the country’s largest companies create remote, U.S.-based teams they can insource at a lower cost than teams they can pull from urban areas. We are focused on building IT teams with the best talent. This is a win for our customers and the communities from which we source these skilled professionals.”

As the largest technology council in the nation, NVTC is the regional voice of technology, serving about 1,000 companies and organizations, including businesses from all sectors of the technology industry, service providers, universities, foreign embassies, non-profit organizations and government agencies.
