Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 12, 2012

Spanlink Communications, a Cisco partner focused on designing, implementing and supporting contact center and customer collaboration solutions, announced today at Cisco Live that it has achieved the Cisco Master Managed Services Certification, and the Cisco Powered Managed Unified Communications designation. Both accomplishments recognize Spanlink’s investment in the ITIL® processes, practices and tools necessary to provide high-quality managed services.

“Technology needs and system requirements can shift quickly, and though the technology itself is nimble enough to handle the changes, allocating the resources, ensuring the resources are skilled in the appropriate areas and setting aside the proper time to make the changes are often our customers’ biggest challenges. That’s where Spanlink Managed Services comes in,” said Lisa Goette, director of customer support services at Spanlink. “This certification highlights our breadth of expertise, and customers and prospects can feel confident that when modifications are needed, they have the skilled resources necessary to assist them.”

As a Cisco Master Managed Services Certified Partner, Spanlink has demonstrated the ability to deliver sophisticated solutions, met stringent requirements that reflect a depth of capabilities and endured an independent audit by an objective third-party auditor.

In addition to the requirements above, Spanlink was also required to offer at least two managed services to support Cisco solutions. Spanlink surpassed this requirement by offering the following managed services:
› Spanlink’s Safeguard Suite, including:

  •      Monitoring Tools
  •     Daily Configuration Audits
  •     Hourly Network Drills
  •     Trunk Usage and Capacity Reports
› Dedicated Service Account Manager
› Support Services to Ensure High-Availability
› Moves/Adds/Changes/Deletions (MACD)
› Script Modifications
› Configuration Management
› Annual Disaster Recovery
› Quarterly Service Review
› Quarterly Patch Installation

“Spanlink’s investment in the Cisco Master Managed Services certification ranks it among an elite group of channel partners with the resources to deploy, manage and support services for multiple technologies,” said Edison Peres, senior vice president of worldwide channels at Cisco.
