Data#3 Awarded Cisco Marketing Partner of the Year

Leading Australian technology services and solutions provider, Data#3, today announced that it has been recognised for the second year running as the Cisco APJC Marketing Partner of the Year.

The award is a reflection of Data#3’s success in executing communication strategies that create exceptional customer experiences.

Throughout the FY19/20 financial year, Data#3 Marketing undertook a series of targeted customer campaigns; growing both Data#3 and Cisco brand awareness, educating customers, and accelerating customer value realisation.

Along with accelerating sales, this award recognises Data#3’s continued differentiation through a lifecycle-based approach to customer engagement. Data#3’s innovative approach to cross-platform marketing has enabled a collaborative effort between Data#3 and Cisco to engage customers in an entirely new way. Undertaken as part of its own transformation program, Data#3 has challenged traditional Cisco partner norms; integrating marketing, customer success, and professional services in new ways to help customers maximise the value of their Cisco investments.

Data#3 Chief Marketing Officer, Garrett MacDonald, commented “We’re extremely proud to once again receive this prestigious Cisco award. Despite the challenges of 2020, this award is testament to our team’s ability to continuously rethink, reposition, and rise to any occasion. In the rapid shift to remote working, our marketing team acted quickly, pivoting mid-execution to meet customers, and the new challenges, where they were- something the team has done with great success. Congratulations to the Data#3 team on this outstanding achievement.”

This award follows global recognition as Cisco’s global Enterprise Networking Partner of the Year in 2019, and global Software Partner of the Year in 2018.

Data#3 has achieved Cisco’s Gold Partner status, Cisco’s highest partner certification.

Data#3 helps customers digitally evolve by combining Cisco technology with Data#3 services, maximising the business value from their technology investments. A holistic customer lifecycle approach ensures that customers benefit from the full range of consulting, procurement, implementation, adoption, and operational support services offered by the practice.
