St. Charles, MO – May 13, 2010 – Net Services announced today it has achieved SMB Specialization from Cisco®. The SMB Specialization recognizes Cisco resale channel partners whose primary focus is on the small and medium-sized business (SMB) market with fewer than 250 employees.
According to Net Services Owner and CEO Mike Stephens, “Net Services has reached a point in its support to its clients that just providing infrastructure cabling service was not fulfilling all the I T needs of the Net Services clients. Obtaining our Cisco SMB Specialization will allow us to expand our expertise and design, plan and deliver the solutions our clients are requesting.”
“The Cisco SMB Specialization was created in response to customer demand for channel partners to be capable of designing and implementing SMB-specific Cisco solutions," said Surinder Brar, senior director of worldwide channels at Cisco. “With the SMB Specialization, Net Services has made an investment in obtaining the training, skills and knowledge necessary to play a pivotal role in meeting this increasing demand.”
To earn SMB Specialization, Net Services fulfilled training and exam requirements. Net Services also met the personnel, training, and post-sales support requirements set forth by Cisco.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills. Cisco resale partner certifications represent an increasing breadth of skills across key technologies and a partner’s ability to deliver integrated networking solutions. Cisco resale partner specializations—SMB, Express, Advanced, and Master—reflect an increasing depth of sales, technical and service expertise in particular technologies.
