Partner enablement is a major focus area for Cisco globally
Santa Clara, CA (Vocus) July 22, 2010
Netformx®, the global leader in design and proposal generation platforms for service providers, systems integrators and manufacturers, announced today they will expand their reach into Europe with Comstor as their European distributor. Netformx will be able to leverage their Cisco partnership even more through Comstor, the world’s leading Cisco distribution partner.
Netformx is the acknowledged leader in intelligent network design platforms delivering data-driven, rules-based design, quoting and proposal generation solutions validated against the world’s most extensive multi-vendor KnowledgeBase. Netformx can be considered a software platform as well as a content service provider with the evolving KnowledgeBase comprised of over 2 million rules and advisors, and a growing list of over 200,000 vendor devices that are updated on a weekly basis.
Comstor will primarily focus on selling the Netformx DesignXpert® editions which include their CCE edition and Silver editions specific for Cisco devices, as well as their Gold edition which includes a library of Cisco devices and their complementary partners. DesignXpert is a solution that is used within Cisco, but also has been adopted by thousands of partner sales engineers worldwide from small and medium-sized firms to large integrators and it is a perfect match to Comstor’s customer-base.
Ittai Bareket, CEO at Netformx commented: “We are proud to say all Tier one service providers, large integrators and many Cisco partners in North America have articulated that DesignXpert consistently delivers significant benefits by accelerating a more profitable and professional sales process. This success has resulted in a rapidly increasing demand for Netformx Solutions outside of North America. We are, therefore, extremely excited to be partnering with Comstor to deliver these benefits to the European market.”
Jon Pritchard, President Comstor, adds: “Within Comstor, we are always looking for new ways to help our partners to become more competitive. DesignXpert from Netformx allows our partners to generate revenue opportunities by focusing on network migration and network upgrades. Besides that, DesignXpert is the Cisco approved design platform for Unified Computing B-series servers, which Comstor recently has been empowered to sell”.
“Partner enablement is a major focus area for Cisco globally”, Domique VanHamme, Director European Distribution, Cisco comments,”DesignXpert from Netformx is one of those initiatives that will help partners to increase their productivity, efficiency and scalability. With Comstor’s focus on developing new Cisco partners and enabling existing customers on new technologies like Unified Computing, DesignXpert will prove to be a very valuable enhancement to their portfolio.”
