On November 21, Cisco certified Accudata Systems as a Cisco Gold Partner, the highest certification level possible in the Cisco Channel Partner Program. While there are many partners in the Cisco Channel partner program, very few reach the Gold level. Gold level partners earn this distinction by developing a highly skilled team with critical expertise in Cisco advanced technologies and by consistently delivering value and proven technical capabilities while focusing on high customer satisfaction levels. Accudata Systems will benefit from this accomplishment through increased access to Cisco’s products, services, technical support, productivity tools, and online training, enabling Accudata Systems to enhance the consulting services it provides to Cisco customers.
“We are very excited to achieve the Cisco Gold certification as a result of our recent third party audit”, said Patrick Vardeman, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Accudata Systems. “As we continue to invest in our long term strategy to bring next generation collaboration, security, and data center technologies to our clients, this achievement expands our relationship with Cisco and extends our capability with our clients.” The third-party audit process confirmed that Accudata Systems has attained one of the highest levels of competence possible in every Cisco advanced specialization available today. Brenda Trafton, the Accudata Systems Sales Support Manager who coordinated the Accudata certification efforts, confirmed the audit process was smooth. “We were overly prepared and that speaks volumes to what we are trying to do.”
As a Cisco Gold Certified Partner, Accudata was required to have advanced specializations in Unified Communications, Routing and Switching, Security, and Wireless LAN. Consequently, the following Cisco Certifications now comprise the Accudata Systems portfolio:
