ALSO to be Cisco supported distributor in Finland

After thorough and objective evaluation with the Cisco Finland team, the company selected ALSO as one of only two supported distributors in Finland.

Cisco offers a variety of IT solutions for a hybrid world, from Data Centers to Hyperconverged Infrastructures. With products ranging from collaboration and conferencing tools the company also plays a significant role in enabling remote work as one of the key elements of the Next Normal. Now ALSO Finland and Cisco are going to align their efforts in addressing the market in order to help resellers deliver state-of-the-art solutions to the end customers.

This is yet another step forward in the close collaboration between the two companies. Just in October, ALSO was nominated as Cisco’s first Digital Distribution Partner worldwide, aggregating different cloud solutions within one ecosystem in order to be able to map Cisco’s extensive product portfolio. Espen Zachariassen, Chief Customer Officer of ALSO Nordics, states: “We are very happy to have successfully reached this milestone. It not only shows the dedication and effort our team has put into the distribution of Cisco products so far. It is also proof of our growth aspirations in Finland and beyond.”

“The main pillar of Cisco's strategy is to offer not only hardware but also intelligent software solutions. ALSO provides an excellent sourcing platform for this need through the ALSO Cloud Marketplace platform. We believe this will add value and ease of choice for our customers to choose Cisco's data center, cloud, hybrid workload and security solutions.” Tiina Säämänen, Channel Lead Finland and Baltics
