What’s the Key to Cisco Cius Success? ‘Appify’!

March 19, 2012 at 1:22 pm PST

With the proliferation of iPads and other consumer devices, the Cius is quickly becoming a hot commodity for customers. With the device’s support for a diverse set of third-party endpoints and Unified Computing System (UCS) integration, unique applications, and video, the Cius is truly a business-focused tablet that fits right into the network.

And the key to selling the Cius? According to Tech2000 CEO George Churchwell it’s all about “appifying” the environment.

Appify? Huh? What does this Learning Solutions Partner know that we don’t?
Well, let’s start with a definition. You won’t find this in the dictionary:

appify [ap-uh-fahy]
verb: To apply mobile solutions that allow the Cius developer’s kit to be implemented, thereby letting the Cius apps and functionality lead the sale. With apps, UCS solutions and WebEx solutions can be integrated right into the Cius platform and help solve customer problems.

This strategy has been wildly successful for Tech2000, which has helped a number of Cisco partners sell UCS solutions by creating apps. Unlike an iPad, the Cius offers the ability to integrate wireless and WebEx solutions right into apps and into the platform while solving a customer problem.

Watch this video as George offers advice and examples of successful Cius apps and tips to help partners get training on the go.

What else did George have to say? Keep reading for his advice, tips, and experiences with apps and the Cius. Read More »
