Tampa Bay Rays add Oldsmar's Vology as IT sponsor

Published April 22, 2014

The Tampa Bay Rays just added a new sponsor.

Vology Inc., a fast-growing Oldsmar provider of new and precertified used technology products, cut a three-year sponsorship agreement naming it as the "preferred IT solutions provider" to the Rays. The Vology logo will be displayed along the rightfield wall of Tropicana Field. Terms were not disclosed.

"Vology's core competency is helping our customers get the most out of their IT budgets. We are not aware of an organization that exemplifies getting the most out of a budget better than the Tampa Bay Rays," said Barry Shevlin. Vology's founder and CEO has been a season ticket holder since the Rays' inaugural year in 1998.

Last year, Vology bought Tampa's Bayshore Technologies, and last month acquired the Irvine, Calif., division of Govplace, a Reston, Va., value-added reseller or customizer of technology systems to the federal government. Vology also ranked in this year's newly released Tampa Bay Times list of 100 Top Workplaces in the metro area.
