Emirates Computers has jumped up from silver to gold partner status with Cisco. The new gold status certification covers the Gulf region and Saudi Arabia.
The elevated status recognises Emirates Computers’ technical expertise in planning, implementing and supporting Cisco network solutions, and its ability to deliver high levels of customer satisfaction.
“The gold partner certification is a mark of excellence and recognition of the highest levels of service and support that Emirates Computers offers its customers,” said Dani Diab, VP and general manager of Emirates Computers, Abu Dhabi.
“The gold certification also positions us as one of Cisco’s preferred partners in the region. Earning Cisco gold status is a testimonial of our commitment to offer the best-of-breed solutions to our customers in the Gulf region,” Diab added.
The Cisco gold certified partner level also means a high level of credibility in the marketplace according to Emirates Computers, with many governments and large enterprises insisting on dealing with suppliers that hold this status as part of their requests for proposal (RFP).
To achieve gold status, Emirates Computers had to specialise in four specific Cisco networking technologies: routing and switching, VPN security, wireless LAN and IP communications. Emirates Computers has a number of certified Internetwork Experts, who have achieved the highest level of professional certification from Cisco in the areas of voice, routing and switching, service and security as well as IP telephony.
“Our customers can rest assured that Emirates Computers will continue to deliver industry-leading support and maintain the stringent Cisco standards for network expertise and support capabilities,” Diab added.
Tarek Ghoul, regional channel manager at Cisco Systems Gulf and Pakistan, added: "The purpose of our certification programme is to build channel partner expertise. Gold certification status provides strong recognition of Emirates Computers commitment to providing the highest level of network knowledge and customer satisfaction."
"The Cisco partner certification programme offers world-class technical and sales training. The programme also ensures the consistent delivery of industry-leading support by maintaining rigorous standards for network expertise and support capabilities," added Ghoul
