When you’re trying something new, it definitely helps to have someone walk you through it. (I’ve certainly felt that way countless times when I’ve had to assemble one of my daughter’s toys.)
In that vein, consider Cisco Partner Advisor your source for getting questions answered: Partner Advisor can help new or existing Registered and Select Certified Small Business partners get started with Cisco. Partners can talk or chat online for free with a Partner Advisor agent to get non-technical information about on-boarding, programs, promotions, marketing, and financing, or to get help facilitating deals and sales opportunities.
Partner Advisor agents have expertise with the Quick Pricing Tool (QPT), and Cisco Capital offers—resources that are suited for Small Business partners. They can also help you enroll in the VIP-Express quarterly incentive program, formerly known as PDF.
Partner Advisor launched in February, and the service has been made available to partners in 28 countries to date. Since May there have been over more than 30,000 conversations with Partner Advisor agents, and many partners have praised Partner Advisor for helping them increase their knowledge about Cisco products, expand into new markets, and navigate Cisco online resources more efficiently. Here’s what some partners just like you are saying about Partner Advisor. Read More »
