Long View Achieves Cisco Master Unified Communications Specialization

October 03, 2012

Specialization levels reflect the depth of expertise, technical, and services capabilities, end-to-end service and support for specific solutions and technology architecture, and by achieving the Master Unified Communications Specialization from Cisco, Long View has clearly endorsed these competencies and capabilities.

“Frankly, we’re tickled at achieving Master Unified Communications Specialization from a global frontrunner like Cisco. It’s a ringing endorsement of our sales, technical, and service competencies and capabilities,” said Kent MacDonald, vice-president of converged infrastructure at Long View.

Long View has met the stringent requirements of master-level sales, technical, and services capabilities and also earned a number of Cisco and industry-standard certification requirements.

In addition, it has also demonstrated that it has the necessary infrastructure to support a full menu of Lifecycle service offerings and capabilities and has also fulfilled the necessary training and program prerequisites that allow it to sell and deploy Cisco unified communications solutions.

The specialization was in response to customers' demand for enhanced skill sets and capabilities from channel partners as this would enable them to turn unified communications into a strategic advantage.

“At Long View, we strive to ensure our clients enjoy collaboration that’s comprehensive, effective, and meaningful,” added MacDonald.

While the Cisco resale channel program provides partners with the training required to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills, Cisco resale partner specializations reflect an increasing depth of sales, technical and service expertise in particular technologies.

According to Richard McLeod, director of unified communications for worldwide channels at Cisco, “Long View’s investment in the Master Unified Communications Specialization ranks them among the industry’s elite.”

Long View Systems, one of North America’s foremost providers of IT consulting, Cloud services, and outsourcing solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been designated a FlexPod Premium Partner by NetApp and Cisco in establishing Cloud-based architecture for its customers in both the United States and Canada.
