Unique Accreditation Combo Stands Avsnet in Good Stead

Graham Fry

avsnet has been awarded both Cisco’s Master Collaboration Specialisation and Polycom’s RealPresence Services Specialisation, becoming the only provider in the UK to hold both accreditations.

Graham Fry, Managing Director at avsnet said, “To hold one accreditation is impressive, to have both is clear evidence of our long-standing dedication to improving our customers’ businesses. Many providers say they understand best-in-class technology, however very few have the certification to support their claims. This is another example as to why our clients choose us. It provides the industry with the confidence that our expertise and knowledge is not an unfounded promise, but a tangible asset capable of providing long-term business improvement and market-leading return on investment.”

Master Collaboration Specialised partners and RealPresence Services Specialists represent an elite partner community that has met the most rigorous certification requirements. Following tough pre-application reviews and validation processes, avsnet passed a number of stringent on-site audits to achieve these accreditations, including detailed analysis and assessment of the company’s sales capabilities, technical skills, support practices, service offerings and customer experience. Coupled with Cisco and Polycom’s policies of continuous training, this will ensure avsnet maintains its position of best-in-class performance.

Angela Whitty, Managing Director, UK Partner Organisation at Cisco said, “I’m very pleased that avsnet has achieved the highest level of specialisation within our collaboration portfolio, Master Collaboration. This confirms avsnet’s commitment to be an excellent and highly valued Cisco partner and demonstrates the highest level of knowledge, service and dedication within this field.”

Dave Winchcombe, Area Services Sales Vice President at Polycom said, “This accreditation demonstrates the quality and breadth of avsnet’s engineering and technical talent, the strength of its operational processes and the company’s network management experience. This combination ensures businesses choosing avsnet will be supported during the entire lifecycle of their IT estates.”
