Victoria-based consultancy firm, ZyNet, has become an SMB Select certified partner of Cisco as it continues to scale up its business. ZyNet managing director, Paul Turner, said gaining the SMB certification with Cisco involved making a commitment to understanding how the vendor's products integrate into solutions.
One ZyNet staff member has passed Cisco's sales and technical exams and another will be put through the tests soon. Turner said ZyNet invested in the certification because of the move Cisco was making into the SMB space.
"Cisco-related solutions are tied into our consultancy and the solutions we have put into place," he said. For the past year, ZyNet has been active in increasing its branding and corporate profile and it has recently hired a new marketing manager, Matt Eades.
He comes to ZyNet with experience in local government economic development and also online solutions with Primus Telecom.
Eades' initial goal is to develop a marketing plan and grow ZyNet's customer base.
"I think it's a really interesting company," Eades said. "And I'm looking forward to opportunities to grow it and drive business development," Eades said.
