That means Star2Star now offers Ciscos SPA 300 and SPA 500 series IP phones in its product line.
We like to offer our dealers and customers as many choices as possible, and our relationship with Cisco means we can offer them phones from a name they know and trust,” Joe Rhem, Star2Star president, said this week.
Star2Star had to complete Ciscos training and exam requirements to earn the designation. The Sarasota, Fla.-based company further had to ensure it can meet Ciscos personnel, training and post-sales stipulations. The Cisco program uses a third-party audit process to validate channel partner qualifications such as technology skills, business best practices, customer satisfaction, and pre-sales and post-sales support.
With the Small Business Specialization, Star2Star has made an investment in obtaining the training, skills and knowledge necessary to play a pivotal role in meeting this growing demand,” said Andrew Sage, Ciscos vice president of worldwide small business sales.
Star2Star sells through master and wholesale distributors, dealers and master agents.
