SMP Icon 4cSystems Management Planning, Inc., (SMP) is pleased to announce it has been selected as the Venture Tech Network (VTN) Cisco Partner of the Year for the US.

The annual award, which was presented at the ONE Ingram Micro event in Las Vegas, honors the VTN partner that exhibits excellence in growing their Cisco practice through sales and advanced certifications. In March 2014, SMP achieved Cisco’s Master Collaboration Specialization and was recognized as one of Ingram Micro Inc.’s fastest growing Cisco partners in the U.S.

“SMP is investing heavily in building our Cisco business to maintain the firm’s competitive edge and continue delivering exceptional service to our customers,” said Peter Allen, COO, SMP. “SMP is recognized for its business execution, industry thought leadership and technical expertise in data center, collaboration, virtualization and network solutions”.

“SMP’s Cisco practice was born in the data center with UCS where we dominate the marketplace. We saw growing demand to bring collaboration and network together with our virtualization expertise to better serve our clients,” said Chris Fox, VP of Business Development, SMP. “In the past 18 months SMP has hired 4 Cisco CCIE’s to bolster our technical capabilities and ensure our clients receive the guidance and services they need.”

SMP’s Cisco business has exploded over the past three years and the company doesn’t see it slowing down anytime soon. “The industry is going through a significant refresh in network and wireless technologies,” continued Fox. “When you couple our experience in virtualization with the emergence of Software Defined Networking (SDN), SMP is positioned well to be the leader in the space.”

“SMP is a high-performance channel partner for Cisco and Ingram Micro, and a stand-out member of our VTN community,” said Holly Garcia, Executive Director, Sales – Major Accounts, Ingram Micro. “SMP continues to demonstrate a commitment for innovation and growth, and is committed to strengthening its successful alliances with Cisco and Ingram Micro. We congratulate SMP on their continued success and win of VTN Cisco Partner of the Year.”

“We are honored to be selected as the VTN Cisco Partner of the Year,” said Allen. “It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of our technical team who work tirelessly to thrill our clients.”
