Geneva, Illinois (PRWEB) March 23, 2010
Christie Technology Corporation (Christie Technology) 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 Christie Technology Founder, Cynthia Duke, “the Cisco SMB Specialization coupled with the Cisco SMB Solutions is a perfect fit with our focus on thinking Local, Simple and Sustainable. Our customers are particularly interested in the SMB-specific Cisco solutions for Wireless/Mobility. Obtaining our Cisco SMB Specialization will further enable us to design, plan and deliver the solutions our SMB customers 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, Christie Technology 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, Christie Technology fulfilled training and exam requirements. Christie Technology 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—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.
