A call center dedicated to small business customersAdditionally, we have created and will continue to expand, a set of packaged offerings for our partners that enable them to provide support and managed services to customers as a way of generating recurring revenue with their customersSmall businesses want big business capabilitiesInternet and outsourcing have leveled the playing fieldAccess to data required anytime, anywhereStaff must be easily contactable at all timesWant to be able to deploy and grow quickly and easilyNo IT staffDeployment and infrastructure integration top issuesWant it all at a small business priceWill invest if there is value: increased productivity, scalability, etcWe have organized a rich spectrum of offers that spans the needs from point products to solutions.The point products target the transactional buyer who is looking for a tactical network solution to solve a problem. These products are designed to be easy to install and manage with an out of the box experience. They are quick turn products and as result do not carry the life cycle management characteristics. They have basic phone support and do not have extended support programs available for them. Mostly these are the Linksys Small Business Products.The solution products target the small business customer looking for a complete data or voice and data solution with the ability to run all the individual components managed as a single system. These are the products that small business focused partners will primarily use to build repeatable profitable businesses. These products are system tested, have upgrades and life cycle management and they have extended service offers. An example is the Smart Business Communications Solution which includes voice, data, wireless and security all coordinated into one solution.Extended commentary:Just as our portfolio builds out, increasing in richness, so does the services models that support the products.Cisco Services will offer two categories of services to provide competitive services support in small business.The first category of small business services will provide strong warranty support for our Cisco Small Business Series products in a consumer-friendly “retail style” that is very easy to understand by end customers in this segment. In this category, we will also greatly simplify the way a customer gets rapid product replacement or out-of-warranty support, which can be activated with a convenient credit card transaction.The second category of small business services are partner delivered and support the Cisco Pro-Series Products. The partners that deliver these services earn $5 million or less in annual revenue and rely more heavily on services, which comprise a greater percentage of their revenue stream. Because services are critical to these partners’ profitability, we’ve developed purpose-built services for these partners. An example of a service that partners can offer in this category includes a network-level support service that provides the capability to proactively manage of the partner-built network solution. This service offering provides significant opportunity for partners in the process of developing a small, managed-service business model.Built for SMBCisco Small Business Support OptionsCisco Support Services (SmartNet)Manageability
