April 12, 2011   //   News

Oak Brook, IL, April 12, 2011 – IT consultants SWC Technology Partners has reached the upper echelon of Cisco partners when it comes to providing customers with Cisco unified communications solutions.

SWC, a Midwest provider of IT solutions to mid-market Chicago area organizations, has attained Cisco’s Advanced Unified Communications Specialization. The designation recognizes SWC’s knowledge and expertise in selling, designing, installing, and supporting a comprehensive unified communications solution, including:

  • IP Telephony
  • Video conferencing
  • Integrated voice and Web conferencing
  • Mobile IP soft phones
  • Voicemail / Unified Messaging

“SWC has a commitment to formalizing credentials and capabilities around the technologies we recommend and deploy,” said SWC President Bob Knott. “We invest in the solutions that will bring our customers success, and make recommendations regarding the best or most productive solution in a scrupulous and studied manner, partnering with top tier providers like Cisco.

“SWC is uniquely qualified to provide a level of Cisco solutions that most companies aren’t capable of delivering,” Knott added. “This is a major milestone and a designation that sets us apart from our competitors.”

Earning the Advanced Unified Communications specialization is a rigorous process that takes months to accomplish and requires expertise in planning, design, engineering and managing equipment.

“This specialization is significant because telephony has become an integrated part of a company’s technology environment, and the worlds of technology and telephony collide,” said Adam Ferguson, SWC Unified Communications Practice Leader. “The phone is so much more than a dial tone; it is a multifunctional business tool that ties into the overall desktop experience.”

Because SWC provides infrastructure and software solutions in addition to unified communications, customers have a singular and complete experience. SWC doesn’t just look at unified communications; it looks at how unified communications impact the network environment. SWC’s team of telephony, unified communications and networking professionals are experienced, sought-after experts that hold numerous certifications and accreditations.
