Cisco’s Channel Partner Program Recognizes Partners with Highest Level of Collaboration Expertise, Lifecycle Services and Success in Sales
Schaumburg, IL November 8, 2016 – Network Data Systems announced today it has achieved the Master Collaboration Specialization from Cisco ®. This specialization recognizes Network Data Systems as having the ability to represent Master-level business expertise as well as technical efficiency, having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support highly sophisticated applications-based Cisco Collaboration solutions.
“Achieving the Cisco Master Collaboration Specialization validates our ability to successfully understand complex customer needs to propose and demonstrate complex cloud, private, hybrid and premise collaboration solutions that our customers require to grow and differentiate their business,” said Michael Doyle, President, Network Data Systems. “Our entire team’s focus on a positive customer journey to cloud-based Cisco collaboration and contact center solutions minimizes customer risk and accelerates their adoption of cloud-based Cisco solutions. Cisco’s accreditation affirms our knowledge and expertise.”
To achieve the Master Collaboration Specialization, channel partners must first attain the Advanced Collaboration Specialization. Partners must then meet stringent requirements that demonstrate their Master-level sales, technical, and services capabilities. Furthermore, Master specialized partners must possess a number of Cisco and industry-standard technical certification requirements, 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.

Cisco Channel partner specializations-SMB, Express, Advanced and Master-reflect an increasing depth of sales, technical and service expertise in particular technologies. Cisco Master specializations provide Network Data Systems access to comprehensive sales, technical, and lifecycle services training and support available from Cisco.
