December 12, 2011

Netelligent Corporation has achieved the Master Unified Communications Specialization from Cisco.

In a release, Luke Johnson, director of Professional Services at Netelligent, said, “Achieving Cisco’s Master Unified Communications Specialization further demonstrates Netelligent’s expertise around planning, designing, implementing, and supporting complex unified communications solutions.”

It was revealed by company sources that this specialization highlights Netelligent Corporation’s capabilities to fulfill all training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support highly sophisticated applications-based Cisco Unified Communications solutions.    

 “We continue to widen our breadth of unified communications solutions offerings to our customers to provide options ranging from on premise solutions to hybrid cloud solutions. The achievement of this specialization also furthers the continued growth in our partnership with Cisco and we look forward to our future success together,” Johnson added.

In order to achieve the Master Unified Communications Specialization, it is necessary for resale channel partners to attain the Advanced Unified Communications Specialization. Also it is imperative for partners to meet stringent requirements to showcase their master-level sales, technical, and services capabilities, said officials.

It is also required that master specialized partners should hold Cisco and industry-standard technical certifications, provide customer references that document Cisco-prescribed design and deployment capabilities, besides giving evidence that they have the infrastructure to support a full menu of Lifecycle Services offerings and capabilities.

Richard McLeod, director of Unified Communications for Worldwide Channels at Cisco stated, “To help turn the promise of unified communications into a strategic advantage, customers are demanding an enhanced set of skills and capabilities from channel partners. Netelligent Corporation’s investment in the Master Unified Communications Specialization ranks them among the industry’s elite.”

The Cisco Resale Channel Program helps partners to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills besides validating their skills via a third-party audit. Cisco resale partner certifications range from Select, Premier, Silver and Gold. They display several skills across key technologies and a partner’s ability to deliver integrated networking solutions, added officials.

Cisco resale partner specializations, SMB, Express, Advanced and Master highlights an increasing depth of sales, technical and service capabilities in certain technologies. Cisco master specializations enable Netelligent Corporation to access sales, technical, and lifecycle services training and support available from Cisco.
