Companies across all industries – from retail to healthcare to manufacturing – are focused on becoming digital businesses. And, according to Gartner, the percentage of enterprises that deem networking core to their digital initiative success will increase to over 75% by 2022. Cisco partners are the best in the industry at delivering the right networking, security, and software solutions to help our customers put their digital initiatives into action. But how do you make sure your customers get the value, experience, and outcomes they demand? The answer is services.

The most profitable Cisco partners are aggressively expanding their services, software, and solutions focus. They are also focusing on selling to line-of-business (LoB) decision makers and growing recurring revenues. In addition, they are looking beyond the initial sale and focusing on selling across all stages of the customer lifecycle – land, adopt, expand, and renew. We are committed to helping you build a strong, highly-valued services business, which can lead to greater profitability.

To fully address your customers’ needs, especially with emerging digital solutions, you should consider leveraging Cisco Services. This will amplify your own capabilities while quickly extending your services portfolio.

By extending your services reach with Cisco Services, you will be able to:

  1. Grow your business. New services opportunities include technical onboarding and adoption capabilities that help customers fully utilize their Cisco investments. These adoption services offer broader reach to LoB, instantly driving new conversations and access to new budgets.
  2. Increase customer relevance. Our new Cisco Services, being announced tomorrow, can help ensure your customers’ systems have the bandwidth to take on more IT initiatives while ensuring they stay compliant, safe, and secure. When business requirements need IT to support expansion, it’s critical that your customers are ready to add in new capabilities. The right services can accelerate adoption, and help achieve ROI and business outcomes more quickly. They can also lead to more satisfied and loyal customers, resulting in easier renewal cycles and greater opportunities for upselling additional products and services.
  3. Gain more rewards and incentives. Our award-winning partner programs are designed to reward and recognize your business. With the Cisco Services Partner Program (CSPP), we offer competitive front-end discounts and back-end rebates to help you close more business, with extra rewards for over-performance. Leverage additional Cisco services to drive a broader footprint across the enterprise, expand to new buying models, and add on additional services for implementation, adoption, management, and business transformation.
