Best Cisco Collaboration Partners Serving West Michigan

If you’re looking for a Cisco partner to help you implement a collaboration package, there are four other companies we recommend.

If you decide to go with a Cisco solution such as BE6K, BE7K or Call Manager Express for your collaboration needs, your next step will be finding a Cisco partner. 

A Cisco partner is a reseller who Cisco has authorized to distribute their products. They’ve completed training in one or more technology areas, such as unified communications, and are able to assist you in planning, building and operating your network. 

As a Cisco partner, here at The KR Group, we know we’re not always the right fit for every customer. 

So, if you decide to look for another Cisco partner to help you with BE6K, here are four other companies we recommend: 

  1. Presidio Networked Solutions
  2. Sentinel Technologies
  3. NuWave Technology Partners
  4. IT Resource

These four companies earn our recognition as Cisco partners you can trust to provide you with collaboration expertise.

Presidio Networked Solutions

Presidio has more than 60 offices across the U.S., including its North Central headquarters in Caledonia, Michigan.

It focuses on digital infrastructure, cloud, and security solutions. This includes Cisco collaboration products, such as Call Manager Express, BE6K, BE7K, Cisco cloud, and Webex. 

Presidio promises to deliver this technology in a “full life-cycle model of professional, managed, and support services including strategy, consulting, implementation, and design.”

Presidio has earned recognition as a strong Cisco partner, and it was named the Cisco Enterprise Partner of the Year in 2018 and the 2019 Architectural Excellence Partner of the Year Award for collaboration.

Sentinel Technologies

Sentinel Technologies’ headquarters are in Illinois, but when it expanded to Michigan (Grand Rapids and Livonia) several years ago, it integrated itself into the community.

Sentinel claims to have stayed at the forefront of IT development and maintained a focus on their solutions. Along with its collaboration offerings, Sentinel Technologies also address other IT needs, including data center, cloud, and managed IT services.

In 2019, it received Cisco’s award for the SMB Market Partner of the Year.

NuWave Technology Partners

NuWave Technology Partners provides technology solutions (including unified communications) as well as managed IT services and security.

It has fully operational offices in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Lansing and offers local support from Jackson, Traverse City, and St. Joseph.

Its goal is to “have the technology that powers your business work so well that you don’t think about using the technology.” 

NuWave Technology Partners has embraced Cisco’s culture of implementing a suite of products and meeting Cisco standards.

IT Resource

IT Resource has dozens of locations in the Midwest, including several in West Michigan. 

It strives to deliver technology solutions (including Cisco collaboration) that “simplify IT environments, improve productivity, and reduce costs” and promises to be the IT consultant who’s looking out for your business’s best interest.

IT Resource provides voice and messaging solutions, such as Cisco Unified Communications Manager, with the goal of helping you focus on the meeting or call as opposed to the technology. 

Next steps

You have several options when it comes to choosing a Cisco partner to integrate BE6K or another Cisco collaboration solution.

Each partner we recognized in this article approaches collaboration slightly differently. However, we’re confident they’ll be able to solve your communications needs with a Cisco product. 

If you want to see more of your options, you can also look for other Cisco partners if you want more options than our recommendations.
