ACE IT Solutions announced today it has achieved Small Business Specialization from Cisco. The Small Business Specialization recognizes Cisco® resale channel partners that focus on meeting the technology and services needs of small businesses.
“The Cisco Small Business Specialization will allow us to offer our clients more robust technology solutions to meet their specific needs. Because we deal specifically in the SMB market, this certification will provide another tool that increases our value to clients,” said Warren Finkel, managing partner of ACE IT Solutions.
“The Cisco Small Business Specialization was created in response to customer demand for channel partners capable of designing and implementing Cisco solutions purpose-built for the small business,” said Andrew Sage, vice president of Worldwide Small Business Sales, Cisco. “With the Small Business Specialization, ACE IT Solutions has made an investment in obtaining the training, skills and knowledge necessary to play a pivotal role in meeting this growing demand.”
To earn the Small Business Specialization, ACE IT Solutions fulfilled Cisco training and exam requirements. ACE IT Solutions also met the personnel, training, and post sales support requirements set forth by Cisco.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides a framework for channel partners to build the sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills required to deliver Cisco solutions to end customers. Through the program’s specializations and certifications, Cisco recognizes a channel partner’s expertise in deploying solutions based on Cisco advanced technologies and services. Using a third-party audit process, the program validates channel partner qualifications such as technology skills, business best practices, customer satisfaction, and pre-sales and post-sales support capabilities — critical factors for customers choosing a trusted channel partner.
