This exclusive tool makes it simple for resellers to find the Cisco products they need by responding to a series of questions about the customer’s requirements. It navigates the reseller though all the options available from Cisco’s wide range of switches, routers, security solutions, wireless access points and IP phones. The Azlan Cisco Product Selector is fully integrated into the InTouch system, so orders can be placed immediately, in the normal way, with a single click of a mouse. All resellers need to access and use the tool is a valid InTouch account.
The Cisco Product Selector has been developed by Azlan in response to feedback from partners. David Harvey, Director Business Development EMEA at Azlan, said: “This is another example of how Azlan is making it easier for Cisco partners to do business. The Cisco Product Selector makes it easier for resellers that have little or no experience of the Cisco product range to choose the right products for their SMB customers, and get the job done quickly and efficiently. We try to make it as easy as possible for Cisco Partners at all levels to do business with Azlan and this is just another example of how our continued investment and innovation is making a real difference for Cisco and its resellers.”
Azlan has launched a number of new innovations and programs for Cisco partners in recent months. In March, it added the new AutoQuote feature to its industry leading Cisco SMARTnet quoting, ordering and contract management platform, Felix. Earlier this year, it announced the extension of its comprehensive configure-to-order (CTO) services to cover Cisco’s Computing System (UCS) range of data centre solutions.
Azlan was recently named Cisco’s Collaboration Distribution Partner of the Year 2011 for EMEA, in recognition of its achievements in engaging with value-added resellers and enabling them to take the vendor’s leading Unified Communications, Collaboration, and TelePresence solutions to market.
While the Product Selector is available only for Cisco SMB products at the present time, Azlan plans to extend the functionality to additional products and architectures in the near future.
