If you’ve ever bought a new car at a car dealership, then you’ve likely considered trading in your old clunker at the time of purchase. That trade-in essentially helps you add to your purchasing power by rewarding you for offering up a dated, used product.
This same principle applies to Cisco’s Trade-In Accelerator Program, or TAP. Do your customers have old equipment lying around that is sorely in need of an upgrade? TAP gives partners financial incentives to migrate a customer’s Cisco and competitive networking equipment to newer Cisco products, using the Cisco Technology Migration Program (TMP). How it works: TAP allows partners to apply online, and have customers trade in old equipment. Enrolled partners can then track their progress toward achieving the program requirements (and rewards).
Enrollment in TAP 13 began on May 2 and lasts until June 10. The TAP 13 six-month program period, during which time partners can migrate their customers’ equipment, lasts until October 29.
Here’s more details on TAP 13. Read More »

You may have read about Fast Track 2 when I first blogged about ways this new program will help simplify sales transactions, reduce pricing on key product families, and accelerate Cisco partner rewards and incentives.
As of today, there is now a Fast Track 2 Pricing Catalog that includes the AIRxx Product Family, in addition to product SKUs from switches, routers, and wireless families. This new addition will help partners view the Cisco Suggested Reseller Price, inventory availability by distributor, help you close deals faster and drive incremental demand for Cisco solutions.
The Pricing Catalog will be live for Registered and Certified Partners in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and European markets starting today. Download the Pricing Catalog on Partner Central.
