Zones recognized as a technology innovator within Cisco’s global partner community

Cisco Summit AwardLast week, members of Zones’ executive staff were in Montreal, attending Cisco’s biggest and highest-profile partner event of the year, the 2015 Cisco Partner Summit.

And it was quite a week for Zones!

Zones was recognized with two prestigious Partner of the Year awards, highlighting our accomplishments in the Internet of Things (IoT) space:

Partner of the Year, Solution Innovation
This coveted award came to Zones, in part, for posting year-over-year growth that exceeded 300 percent in the Internet of Things (IoT) market.

Partner of the Year, U.S. National Solution Excellence
Zones earned this U.S.-based award also through our successful delivery of unique and industry-leading IoT implementations.

“Cisco is proud to work together with leading channel partners globally to innovate everywhere and create fresh ideas and possibilities for our customers in the Internet of Everything,” said Wendy Bahr, senior vice president, Americas Partner Organization at Cisco. “It is an honor to recognize Zones with a Cisco Partner Summit Geographical Region award as Partner of the Year for Solution Innovation, and a U.S. National Solution Excellence Partner of the Year award, further underscoring its outstanding accomplishments in the Americas.”

In addition to receiving the awards, Zones was also mentioned multiple times throughout the event, both in front of the entire partner audience, as well as in several well-attended breakout sessions. During her keynote presentation, Cisco SVP Alison Gleeson featured the IoT projects Zones completed for Del Papa Distributing and Pennzoil Place. Zones was also singled out as a leader at two IoT sessions, due to our demonstrated successes and ability to provide ROI to our customers.

Zones executives also took part in press and industry analyst conversations held during the event.

Overall, it was truly an exceptional week for Zones!
