Converged Technology Group Recognized as Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced Authorized Technology Provider Partner in the United States

Managed Services Partner Helps CIOs Explore the Virtual Conference Room, Forge Stronger Partner and Customer Relationships through Collaboration Solutions

ISLANDIA, NY, July 15, 2014 – Converged Technology Group (www.convergedtechgroup.com), an award-winning Managed Services Partner (MSP) serving clients throughout the Northeast, announced today that it has achieved TelePresence Video Advanced Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes Converged Technology Group as having fulfilled the rigorous training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence Video products and solutions at the Advanced level.

The Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced ATP Program is focused on providing a new way of working in which everyone, everywhere can be more productive through face-to-face collaboration with TelePresence Video solutions. The Advanced-level program’s goal is to enable partners to market TelePresence Video endpoints with a full breadth of infrastructure solutions in addition to managed videoconferencing services.

“Solutions like TelePresence enable our customers to work with more engagement and collaboration,” says Leo E. Galletta, President and CEO, Converged Technology Group. “With TelePresence, distance is no longer a barrier in face-to-face communications. Clients can experience an agile, 24x7x365 work environment on a national or even global scale without incurring the time and expense of travel when they need to close a deal fast or collaborate on a project around a virtual conference table with partners and experts all over the world. At Converged Technology Group, we have the expertise to deploy collaboration solutions like TelePresence in a way that not only gives our clients the technical capabilities they need, but also helps them realize increased productivity and operational savings that can help them evolve the way they work today and tomorrow.”

The Cisco Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program is part of the Cisco go-to-market strategy for emerging technologies. The program helps Cisco to define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support an emerging technology. As the market changes, an ATP designation may be discontinued or may evolve into a Cisco specialization.
