Plus 6 Technologies Achieves Cisco Premier Certification
KBZ partner, Plus6 Technologies, has made a landmark accomplishment by completing Cisco Premier Certification in record time. Many KBZ partners are in the process of working toward completing Cisco TelePresence Video Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) training, and are additionally looking toward Select or Premier Certification. Plus6 is a solid example of commitment to the opportunities ahead with Cisco TelePresence. KBZ hopes their story inspires other partners in the Cisco Partner Onboarding training and certification process.
As you know, participation in the Cisco Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program is by invitation-only. The TelePresence Video ATP designation specifically enables partners to market TelePresence video endpoints and infrastructure solutions, and to differentiate themselves based upon their breadth of specialized skill. Partners involved in this program are invited to either Express, Advanced, or Master, depending upon current abilities as well as their goals within the Cisco Channel Partner Program.
Some of you may be considering additional credentials like Select or Premier Certification. Cisco Certification levels reflect a Partner's technology skills breadth, and can open the door to even greater opportunities with Cisco. Premier Certified partners have achieved the Cisco Express Foundation Specialization, which expands technical competency in the integration of basic routing and switching, wireless LAN, and security technologies. Cisco Premier Certified Partners have also integrated a basic level of Cisco Lifecycle Services into their offerings and demonstrate a high level of customer satisfaction.
The completion of Premier Certification is typically a three-to-six month process, during which several partner team members participate in extensive specialized training. Plus6 Technologies elected to aggressively commit to the program, and completed Premier Certification training in an extraordinary 21-day period! Colin Sturtevant, President and CEO of Plus6, commented, "I'm extremely proud of our team's commitment to growing our Cisco knowledge base and capabilities, and of the dedication it took to achieve these certifications in such a short time frame." Mr. Sturtevant went on to say, "As one of few Cisco partners that actually own and operate an Immersive Telepresence Suite we are uniquely positioned to demonstrate the power of this amazing technology to our customers from our Las Vegas HQ."
The completion of Premier Certification demonstrates a solid commitment to Cisco, and the time frame in which Plus6 Technologies did this should be highly motivational for other partners. KBZ extends sincere congratulations to the Plus6 team, and great appreciation for their commitment, partnership and vision as we look toward the many opportunities ahead with Cisco TelePresence.
