These are all critical requirements for any smart city and community deployment.”

How Ingram Micro makes Cisco public sector sales easier

While having access to cutting-edge solutions is an important part of the sales equation, the public sector sales process can be highly complex. To help partners navigate the federal, state and local government as well as the K–12 and higher education markets, Ingram Micro created Public Sector Advantage. The program provides partners with valuable intelligence on where the market is headed along with a unique blend of priority services, essential contract management support and creative ways to drive contract success.
