MBC Managed IT Services announced today it has achieved Select Certification from Cisco. The Select Certification recognizes Cisco® resale channel partners that focus on meeting the technology and services needs of small businesses.
“MBC’s recognition as a Certified Select Partner reinforces our strong commitment to architecting and implementing best-in-class technologies for our customer base” said Michael Benadiba, President & CTO of MBC. “We are excited to be recognized in this fashion and look forward to continue to grow our partnership with Cisco.” Michael Benadiba continued "As a Managed IT Services Provider in Toronto, we need to provide our clients with complete solutions. This certification recognizes our expertise in deploying leading edge VoIP, data, and wireless solutions for Toronto businesses."
“The Cisco Select Certification was created in response to customer demand for channel partners capable of designing and implementing Cisco solutions purpose-built for small businesses," said Andrew Sage, vice president of Worldwide Small Business Sales at Cisco. “With the Select Certification, MBC has made an investment in obtaining the training, skills and knowledge necessary to play a pivotal role in meeting this growing demand.”
To earn Select Certification, MBC fulfilled the training and exam requirements for the Cisco Small Business Specialization. MBC also met the personnel, training and postsales 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 presales and postsales support capabilities -- critical factors for customers choosing a trusted channel partner.
