Want a Network ‘Recipe’ to Increase Partner Quarterly Bookings?

- January 26, 2012 - 0 Comments

Photo credit: foodily.comIf I were cooking lobster risotto for the first time, I probably wouldn’t just leave it to trial and error, hoping for the best. I would go to my favorite website for recipes that had already been tested by fellow home chefs. It’d either be that or order pizza again.

So, when it comes to networks, wouldn’t it be great if there was a similar resource—a place you could tap into to find successful “recipes” for building your customer’s network without having to start from scratch?

Well, there actually is a resource available to Cisco partners and it’s free! Cisco SMART Designs is a portfolio of validated and replicable network solutions, optimized to meet the needs of Cisco partners serving small business customers with up to 250 users. By removing the guesswork from building the right network for your customers, you can make your operation more profitable and help protect your customers’ investments.

If that isn’t enough to convince you to tap into this free resource, how about this fun fact?

Select partners worldwide using Cisco SMART Designs have 52 percent higher average quarterly bookings than those who don’t.
