Sponsored by Businesswire

At the 2020 Cisco Partner Summit Digital, Cisco recognized NWN with two regional Partner of the Year Awards. As a leading national provider of integrated cloud communications and infrastructure offerings, NWN earned the distinction of Technology Excellence Partner of the Year: Collaboration (South) and Transformation/Innovation Partner of the Year (East). NWN was honored for its innovation, leadership and best practice as a strategic Cisco partner.

Over the past year, NWN has delivered its solutions-as-a-service portfolio to 1,400+ customer organizations with cloud communications, security, contact center, integrated devices and connectivity offerings that transform the employee and customer experiences. Partnering with Cisco, the company launched Officeanywhere, an integrated suite of managed unified communications and collaboration services with devices and connectivity that enables digital workplaces to meet current and future business needs. To address customers’ needs at the onset of the global pandemic, NWN responded by delivering its Remote Worker and First Responder bundles to help organizations as they urgently transitioned to a distributed work posture.

“NWN has distinguished itself in 2020 with its innovative solutions-as-a-service portfolio that integrates and extends Cisco’s best-of-breed products to ensure that our customers can easily use, adopt and succeed in today’s new normal,” said John Moses, Vice President, Americas Partner Sales at Cisco. “NWN is at the forefront of delivering cloud-based business communications, networking and services with its unique IP that leverages Cisco’s API to transform the lives of its users. Congratulations to the NWN team for their industry recognition; we’re proud to support your success.”

“Our customers are thinking differently about how they can support the needs of larger, more distributed teams with scalable, cloud-based communication services that are cost-efficient and highly secure,” said Andrew Gilman, Vice President, Marketing and Alliances for NWN. “Partnering with leading OEMs like Cisco, we’re able to seamlessly handle all of an organization’s communications and SLA management needs – from device to the cloud, along with the security to keep it all safe – delivered in a predictable SaaS model. We’re proud to partner with Cisco and appreciate the recognition for our innovative approach to transforming the customer experience.”

The Cisco Partner Summit Digital Area awards reflect the top-performing partners within specific technology markets across the country. Award recipients are selected by a group of Cisco Global Partner Organization and regional executives. These Cisco awards come on the heels of NWN’s recognition from CRN as a Top Solution Provider 2020.
