Partner Voices: Be a Leading Player and Tell your customer story

The most powerful marketing content is an inspired success story. In my recent blog, I told you how our Master Specialized partners are solving customers’ key business problems.  I want to share another incredible story of how a Cisco partner, Core BTS, created a powerful solution for their customer.

A technology foundation for the future

The banking industry has a reputation for speaking conservatively. So, when a bank president describes working with a Cisco partner as “remarkable,” it speaks volumes about the partner and their capabilities.

Core BTS, a Master Specialized partner, was chosen by North Country Savings Bank to help transform the 100-year old bank’s services. They needed a video solution to connect their customers to their offsite service representatives. The bank wanted to improve collaboration and training across offices. And decrease travel time and cost.

The bank described the new wireless, voice, and video solution as the “technology foundation that will carry us into the future.”

Up your game with the Cisco Partner Ecosystem

As a Master specialized partner, customers will expect to have deep, far-ranging conversations with you. Become a part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem and find the capabilities your customers need, all within the safety of Cisco-validated partnerships. Give your customers more value and solve even more complex problems. Read More »

Three Tips for Partners Delivering TelePresence to the Financial Sector

This post is the first in a series where we’ll be featuring success stories from some of our partners on how they are helping customers achieve their goals by using Cisco technology. The author of this post is Kevin Kiser, Director of Marketing, Core BTS.

When you think of the “old boy’s club,” certain industries come to mind: insurance, legal, and finance, to name a few. Those industries also carry the stigma of belabored processes and aged tools. So, how then, can we—the partner community—bring the financial persona into the 21st century? We can start today by showing them the opportunities of tomorrow, in a three-step process.

Recently, teleportation through the use of TelePresence in the financial industry was the main focus of a Cisco print ad in Fast Company’s July/August issue. While the ad describes the ultimate benefits of the technology, the three-step process to bring the ad to life is evident in the continued success of New York’s North Country Savings Bank (NCSB), whose Cisco TelePresence initiative has brought it closer to its customers than ever before. You can learn more about how Core BTS and NCSB worked together to design, implement, and support key technology solutions to drive their business and enhance their customers’ experiences in the video below.

So, what is the three-step process partners can use today?  Read More »
