Federal Data Systems, a leading technology solutions provider for the Department of Defense, announced that it has achieved the coveted Gold Certification from Cisco Systems. Cisco Gold Certified Partners benefit from the highest level of certification-specific rewards and recognitions. Notably, Cisco Gold Certified Partners receive the very best discounts from Cisco when selling their hardware and SMARTNET maintenance (including professional services, our core business), enhancing our ability to compete against the rest of industry for federal business.
To earn Gold certification, FedData was required to meet service, support, customer satisfaction and networking competency requirements and audit set forth by Cisco. “Gold Partner Status is a great accomplishment for FedData,” says Rick Hardy, President of FedData. Our partnership with the Cisco through Gold Certified Partners Program, will give FedData access to additional technical and services training which FedData will pass onto its customers.”
Of the over 10,000 Cisco partners, only one percent are Gold Certified. Being a Gold Certified Partner offers greater credibility and a broader range of expertise in the marketplace.
