Vector Resources Achieves Advanced Videoconferencing Partner Status With Cisco Systems


TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vector Resources announced this week that it has achieved Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status. This designation recognizes that Vector has fulfilled all training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence Video products and solutions at the Advanced Level, across the United States.

The Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced ATP Program is focused on providing a new way of working in which everyone, everywhere can be more productive through face-to-face collaboration with TelePresence Video solutions. The Advanced Level program goal is to enable partners to market TelePresence Video endpoints with a full breadth of infrastructure solutions, in addition to managed videoconferencing services.

“This is a very strategic certification for our company, especially given the high demand for these products and solutions in the federal marketplace,” said Mike Hurd, sales manager for Vector’s Federal Business Group. “Video collaboration solutions help agencies meet federal mandates to reduce travel expenses, plus these solutions have business productivity and sustainability impacts, too. Vector has just increased its capability to help the government achieve an increasingly connected federal workforce.”

The ATP certification sets Vector apart from other systems integrators, “and allows us to leverage our longstanding relationship with Cisco to meet our customer's growing demand for an integrated end-to-end videoconferencing solution,” said Curtis Paradzick, Vector’s vice president of sales. “Plus, it further advances our own position as a respected and forward-thinking IT systems integrator in emerging technologies.”

The Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced ATP Program is designed to enable partners to take advantage of the tremendous market opportunities ahead—not only in the Telepresence space but also in the overall collaboration market, said Richard McLeod, senior director of collaboration for worldwide channels at Cisco. “As a Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced ATP Partner, Vector Resources has made an investment in the sales, technical and life cycle services capabilities needed to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive and interoperable Cisco TelePresence Video portfolio.”

The Cisco Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program is part of the Cisco go-to-market strategy for emerging technologies. The program helps Cisco to define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support an emerging technology. As the market changes, an ATP designation may be discontinued or may evolve into a Cisco specialization.
