During the Spring Partner Summit this week in San Diego, California, Cisco awarded Networking For Future (NFF) with the Outstanding Solutions Partner of the Year for the East Americas. NFF was particularly applauded for achieving fantastic results in the past year, in particular for our innovative Unified Video Surveillance System, and our work at the Smart Connected City project in Washington, DC.

Cisco officially stated: “This partner delivers success – for their customers, employees and Cisco, as they continue to invest in Cisco solutions across all of our architectures: networking, data center, collaboration, security, mobility, cloud and managed services; including IoT, with Cisco Safety & Security solutions. In 2014 NFF achieved 88% YoY overall growth. They have shown great leadership by embracing emerging technologies and driving a business outcome selling approach with investments in sales talent and solutions architects to position them for continued success.

They are doing this with innovative solutions that are based on Cisco and are integrated with third party hardware and software. They continue to evolve their company, to meet our constantly changing environment.  Cisco’s annual partner awards are granted to partners that have demonstrated leading performance within Cisco’s key business arenas. Cisco Partner Summit awards reflect the top-performing partners within specific technology markets across several geographical regions. All award recipients are selected by a group of Cisco Worldwide Partner Organization and regional executives.”

“NFF highly values this prestigious industry award, and we’re honored to be recognized by Cisco for our focus and commitment to drive comprehensive solutions to our customers,” said Steve Hancock, NFF’s Vice President of Sales. “This award demonstrates NFF’s ability to deliver the most innovative and effective solutions to achieve our customers’ mission critical initiatives, while ensuring the highest standards of customer care our clients deserve.”

Sharing the podium with large, multinational corporations is an amazing compliment for NFF’s efforts to drive innovative practices and a big part of our inspiration to become a leading business differentiator.
