Partners all around the world need the resources and knowledge that allows them to rapidly respond to customers ever changing business demands and technology requirements. The Cisco Black Belt Academy is a simplified enablement framework, consisting of carefully curated content, that allows partners to enhance their competitive advantage, learn more about the broad spectrum of Cisco ecosystem solutions, engage more confidently with customers and ultimately execute sales.

Following on from the success of Black Belt Stages 1 and 2, VQ Communications’ Stage 3 content for the Black Belt Academy program is now available.

VQ Communications has been a Cisco Solutions Plus Partner since April 2020 and provides the recommended management software for the Cisco Meeting Server platform.

VQ Conference Manager allows you to unlock the full power of the Cisco Meeting Server, enabling customers to deliver high quality, secure and scalable video and audio-conferencing services. VQ Conference Manager is used and trusted in a variety of verticals globally including Federal, Finance, Defense, Health and Education. Together, VQ Conference Manager and Cisco Meeting Server can deliver conferencing services at truly mind-blowing scale through its complete solution offering. And for those looking to replace TMS, in Stage 3 we introduce our TMS replacement solution; VQ DMA (Device Management and Automation) and our migration paths.

This training program is split into two tracks, Pre-Sales and Sales and has been designed to give partners a greater understanding of the VQ Conference Manager solution and how it solves customer problems. Participation in the Black Belt program enables partners to become confident and competent when including VQ Conference Manager in their sales opportunities.

“Launching Stages 1 and 2 were big milestones for us, and it’s great to see the number of participants who have already completed the program. We’re now really pleased to go-live with our Stage 3 content.”

“VQ Conference Manager continues to make a real difference for customers deploying Cisco Meeting Server and with our growing customer base and sales pipeline, we can see how increasing the awareness of our solution to the global Cisco community is great for VQ, Cisco, CMS customers and Partners.”
