IT Solutions Provider Named East Area Enterprise Networking Partner of the Year

(Rochester, NY 14586 – March 03, 2016) Systems Management Planning (SMP) was honored this week at the 2016 Cisco Partner Summit in San Diego with the award for East Area Architectural Excellence – Enterprise Networking Partner of the Year. Cisco recognized partners from across the globe with honors at their annual awards ceremony. This is SMP’s second Area Award in two years.

Cisco Partner Summit awards are designed to recognize best-in-class business practices and serve as a model to the industry within their respective regions. Awards are given to exemplary channel partners that demonstrate innovative practices, application successes, unique programs, problem solving and sales approaches.

Awards presented at the Cisco Partner Summit reflect the top-performing partners within specific technology markets across all geographical regions. All award recipients are selected by a group of Cisco Worldwide Partner Organizations and regional executives.

“SMP and Cisco enjoy a strong partnership that has helped our business grow and produce record revenue last year,” said Peter Allen, COO, SMP. “This continued recognition of our work together is gratifying. It confirms our belief that we provide the Cisco expertise and services our customer need and demand.”

SMP has been recognized by Cisco several times recently. SMP received the Customer Satisfaction Excellence Gold Star award in July 2015 and has attained both Master Collaboration and Gold Partner honors. Both certifications are two of the highest the Cisco partners can achieve globally.
