Star2Star Communications announced today it has achieved the 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.
“We’re excited to add Cisco’s SPA 300 and SPA 500 series IP telephones to our product line,” said Joe Rhem, president of Star2Star. We like to offer our dealers and customers as many choices as possible, and our relationship with Cisco means we can offer them phones from a name they know and trust,” he continued.
“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, Star2Star 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, Star2Star fulfilled Cisco training and exam requirements. Star2Star 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 presales and postsales support capabilities -- critical factors for customers choosing a trusted channel partner.
