Cloud-focused master distributor West IP Communications, has achieved the Cisco Master Unified Communications (UC) specialization in the U.S.
“This latest Cisco certification reinforces our ability to deliver the most advanced UC applications available today,” said Bob Wise, executive vice president of West IP Communications. “UC is about integrating business communications tools to deliver improved productivity, business/IT alignment and strategic focus. We believe our recent placement in the Leadership Quadrant of Gartner’s unified communications as a service (UCaaS) Magic Quadrant, coupled with this latest honor, makes West IP Communications an excellent partner for successful UC implementations.”
To achieve the Master Unified Communications Specialization, resale channel partners must first attain the Advanced Unified Communications Specialization. Partners must then meet requirements that demonstrate their master-level sales, technical and services capabilities, along with various Cisco and industry-standard technical certification requirements. They must also provide customer references that document Cisco-prescribed design and deployment capabilities; and show evidence that they have the infrastructure to support a full menu of lifecycle services offerings and capabilities.
“To help turn the promise of unified communications into a strategic advantage, customers are demanding an enhanced set of skills and capabilities from channel partners,” said Richard McLeod, director of UC for worldwide channels at Cisco. “West IP Communications’ investment in the Master Unified Communications Specialization ranks them among the industry’s elite.”
