>> CORE: PERSONAL SUPPORT TO GROW YOUR CISCO BUSINESS

Once on-boarded, and a Cisco Registered Partner, partners will need to be familiar with registering potential Meraki deals on Cisco's CCW web-based platform.

Additionally, to be able to transact Cisco Meraki business, partners will need to reach Select certification status. To assist our partners in this effort, Tech Data provides so called 'Select Bootcamps' to support partners on their journey to Select certification. To find dates for local Tech Data Select Bootcamps, please visit the following.

Cisco can help you build up a pipeline around Meraki. Via the following service (you need to be a Meraki partner to access), partners are able to contact interested end users with vertical specific content. Email templates are provided with which partners can invite these end users to Cisco hosted training sessions. Partners will be provided with a Unique Referral Code, within the invite links, which will allow Cisco to track which end user attended a session due to which partners' hunting activities. This has already proven to be a very effective pipeline generation method for some of our partners already actively selling Meraki.
Whilst Cisco Meraki is enjoying success across most industries, particular traction has been made in the vertical markets of Retail, Education, Healthcare, Hospitality and Tourism.
