Bytes Systems Integration (SI) has been recertified as a Cisco Gold Partner in South Africa.
Patrick Hastings, divisional MD at Bytes SI, says the recertification is particularly pleasing because it comes in after Cisco introduce several tough new criteria over the past six months.
“We had to meet several new criteria, including competence in a number of Cisco cloud-powered services, in the second half of the year,” Hastings explains. “What’s particularly pleasing to us is that the quality of the documentation we provided online for Cisco was of such a high quality that they were able to recertify us without a face-to-face audit by a third-party auditor.”
This outcome was the result of a significant team effort, and Hastings singled out Maritza Le Grange, Dudley Page, Etienne Du Plooy and Wendy Bailey for special commendation.
“Our partnership with Cisco is a key one for us, so maintaining our Gold Partner status is an important milestone,” Hastings concludes.
