Capture more Cisco rewards and rebates leveraging automation and analytics
Cisco Partner profitability is being challenged on multiple fronts. In the subscription economy, if you are to keep annuity revenues flowing, you must build and maintain strong relationships throughout the customer experience lifecycle, not just sell a product and move on. Customer satisfaction and stickiness are key to success.
Efficiently manage your sales business
At the same time, you must ensure that your sales and business processes are efficient and that you take maximum advantage of Cisco promotions and discounts. You need to quickly create accurate, consistent, and profitable network designs, no matter how complex. You must also keep pace with the latest Cisco information on products, services, and design guidelines.
Your goal is to:
- Leverage Programs & Promotions to minimize cost
- Take advantage of downstream dollars for Lifecycle Incentive rewards and VIP rebates
- Adhere to Cisco’s strategy to provide a great end-customer experience
- Increase Lifecycle Use/Activate and Adopt rewards to increase profit

Get Insights on Changes with VIP
Are you aware how the VIP program focus has transitioned from selling on-premise to digital solutions?
Leveraging our deep understanding of Cisco programs, we created the “Netformx VIP Index” or as we refer to it as “NVI” to look at how Cisco rewarded partners over the recent VIP periods and compared it to the latest VIP program. Request your ‘Netformx VIP Index Report’ for insight on where it may make sense to adjust your selling motions for the current VIP Period.
