Spark Digital has taken out top honours as Cisco’s Innovation Partner of the Year at the vendors Partner Insight Awards.
Jason Brouwers, Cisco ANZ director of the Partner Business Group, says Spark is ‘a truly deserving winner of the Innovation Partner of the Year award’.
“Its performance and achievements as a Cisco business partner in 2014 were outstanding,” Brouwers says.
Jo Allison, Spark Digital general manager of services and solutions, says Spark has invested to deliver a great digital platform to customers in New Zealand and will continue to invest in both infrastructure and services.
“The award reflects the hard work we’ve put in over the last few years, focusing on innovation both inside our business and for our customers.
“We remain committed to helping our customers gain the competitive advantage that digital solutions can deliver.”
Other winners on the night included Ingram Micro, which was named Distribution Partner of the Year, and Dicker Data, which won Best Distributor Marketing Program.
Dimension Data was one of the big winners on the night, taking home awards for the Cloud Solution Excellence Partner of the Year and Community Contribution, while the company’s Lee Stafford took out the Technical Excellence award.
Dimension Data Learning Solutions was also named Learning Partner of the Year.
Bouwers says partners are, and will continue to be one of Cisco’s main priorities ‘as they are the heart of our business model’.
“We are committed to helping our partners grow their business, and are proud to recognise those who have achieved outstanding results,” he says.
“Each of our award winners have been singled out for showing exceptional initiative. Whether it’s delivering outstanding marketing programmes, or bringing the best possible value for their… clients.”
