FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GreenPages Achieves Cisco Master Unified Communications in the United States
Designation recognizes in-depth technical expertise and demonstrated customer success in selling, deploying, and providing services for more sophisticated Cisco solutions
Kittery, ME—May 27, 2014—GreenPages, a Cisco Gold Certified Partner, announced today that it has achieved the Master Unified Communications Specialization from Cisco®. This designation recognizes GreenPages as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support highly sophisticated Cisco unified communications solutions.
“Earning the Cisco Master Unified Communications Specialization is testament to the talent and dedication of our technical team,” said Ron Dupler, CEO of GreenPages. “It allows us to design and deliver the most advanced Unified Communications solutions to our customers, enabling users to access systems and collaborate on any device, at any time, across the country.”
“As the network becomes the platform for driving communications and innovation, our customers are demanding an enhanced set of skills and capabilities from channel partners,” said Edison Peres, senior vice president of worldwide channels at Cisco. “GreenPages' investment in the Master Unified Communications Specialization ranks them among the industry’s elite.”
To achieve the Master Unified Communications Specialization, resale channel partners must first attain the Advanced Unified Communications Specialization. Partners must then meet stringent requirements that demonstrate their master-level sales, technical, and services capabilities. Furthermore, master specialized partners must possess a number of Cisco and industry-standard technical certifications; provide customer references that document Cisco-prescribed design and deployment capabilities; and show evidence that they have the infrastructure to support a full menu of Lifecycle Services offerings and capabilities.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills, and then validates their skills through a third-party audit. Cisco resale partner certifications—Select, Premier, Silver and Gold—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. Cisco master specializations provide GreenPages access to comprehensive sales, technical, and lifecycle services training and support available from Cisco.
