“I would certainly recommend Fusion. The product provides us with a complete view of our employees Cisco certification data across the entire company, it has the functionalities and reporting capabilities we need to meet the requirements of the Cisco Gold Partner Program and it's great to have all the information available in just one single place"
FRANCESCO MANNI, PROFESSIONAL SERVICES MANAGER, TELEFÓNICA O2
Telefónica O2 had a strategy to move from Premier to Gold level in the Cisco Partner Program. Their biggest challenge was understanding the program rules, their capabilities, and gaps in those rules and the most efficient path to compliance.
They then had to track their progress against their plan– a daunting prospect when using manual spreadsheets. They didn’t have a single place to get all the information they needed so were spending significant amounts of time interpreting information and having to repeat the process as their spreadsheets would become out of date as soon as there was a change.
Bringing those data sets together using manual process increases the risk of error and requires human time and effort.
Telefónica O2 implemented Fusion to help manage their Cisco partner program. By employing the expert support from Vortex 6 and using Fusion, O2 was able to reach their Gold partner status. The implementation of Fusion was quick and straightforward. O2 expect Fusion to be a business-critical tool in maintaining and growing their Cisco capabilities from a compliance perspective.
