Look Closely Before Hitting “Buy”

I was about to hit “Buy” for a name brand microphone when I noticed something was a bit off. Looking more closely, I realized this was not the true brand I thought it was and that it was being sold by a suspicious third party. My experience was trivial compared to what can happen to Cisco’s partners with gray market and counterfeit products which account for over $1 Billion in displaced sales annually.

When Our Partners Win, We Win

The formula for our success is actually quite simple. When our partners win, Cisco wins. OK, there’s a little more to this but in essence our partners win because you’re listening to the needs of our customers, because you are developing innovative solutions that complement Cisco technology and services, and because you are expanding your edge and delivering unique value that sets you apart.
