Softchoice Earns Cisco Master Service Provider Certification

By Melissa Warten

We’ve all been told, “Character is how you act when no one is watching.” As true as that phrase may hold in daily life, it is also true that sometimes, people are watching – and in that case, those who act with character deserve to be recognized. In the tech world, just such a manner of recognition has been bestowed upon technology solutions provider Softchoice, a company which is now certified as a Cisco Master Service Provider.

The Cisco Master Service Provider Certification for cloud and managed services acknowledges a company’s capability to sell cloud services, while reducing both time to market and time to revenue. Additionally, the certification rewards the company for expertise in creating, selling and delivering services with financial incentives in various countries. It is quite an accolade for Softchoice, a national IT supplier providing solution design, implementation, distribution, asset management and cloud services.

Cisco’s Cloud and Managed Services Program aims to help its partners envision, build, market and sell cloud and managed services that provide both business acceleration tools and sales training. The organization also embodies factions such as the Cisco Cloud Marketplace and Cisco Powered services, both of which are geared toward customers looking to gain more confidence in their cloud-based devices. As a Cisco Master Service Provider Certified Partner, Softchoice will now sell and deliver at least two Cisco Powered services, build on the IT Infrastructure Library system, and provide management services to customers.

Steve McDonald, Softchoice’s senior director of business development and networking, said in a statement, “"Earning a Master certification validates the expertise of our people in designing and implementing complex Cisco-based projects and, more importantly, the trust we have earned with our clients to manage and optimize those investments.”

The certification is an achievement for Softchoice and a mark of the continued shift to cloud-based technology in the modern tech world.
