Cisco presents Swisscom with Service Partner of the Year awards

Berne, 3 November 2016

Swisscom triumphs against over 70,000 partners of Cisco and wins three Service Partner of the Year awards. Cisco only recently presented Swisscom this award for Switzerland.

Swisscom had the honour of walking on stage and accepting the awards three times at the Cisco Partner Summit in San Francisco. Cisco conferred three Service Partner of the Year awards to Swisscom: for the region Central Europe, for the region EMEAR (Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa) and the worldwide award.

Since Cisco Systems Schweiz was founded, the global award went to Switzerland for only the third time – and to Swisscom for the first time. The ICT company succeeded in further increasing its high service performance this year. Chris Martin, General Manager of Cisco Systems Schweiz, says, “We are thrilled that our Swiss partner stands out among the more than 70,000 partners Cisco has worldwide. Through digitalisation and the Internet of Things, the requirements placed upon the infrastructure are greatly increasing. Our customers can rest assured that they are in good hands at Swisscom thanks to our competent and professional Customer Success & Lifecycle Management.”

Together with the Service Partner of the Year award for Switzerland, which was presented in September in Zurich, Swisscom has won all awards in this category with four distinctions. Fritz Felix, Head of Global Partner Alliances and Fulfilment at Swisscom, says, “We are proud of having won the entire category of Service Partner of the Year awards. It shows that our services in Cisco’s service business are clearly different to those of our competitors and generate added value for our customers.”

In September, Swisscom was also distinguished with the Enterprise Partner of the Year award for Switzerland.
