About a week ago, International Micro Village Inc. (IMVI), one of the leading IT products and solutions distribution companies in the Philippines, and Cisco Systems, Inc, the leader in networking products worldwide, celebrated their partnership with local corporate and retail partners with a Kick Off night for 2014 at the Elbow Room in Metrowalk, Ortigas. The valuable contributions of 2013 by outstanding partners were recognized in a night filled with good food, music and singing contests. Wait, what?
Okay, so before awarding the top performers of 2013, IMVI and Cisco decided to have a bit of fun by organizing a bit of a singing contest a la The Voice. Representatives from the different partners would sing their song of choice accompanied either by a minus one recording or the live band. There were quite a few gems, including this lady who channeled her inner Whitney Houston (I’m not kidding, she was pretty awesome).
Anyway, the IMVI and Cisco Systems Inc. outstanding partners of 2013 were:
- Retail Partner of the Year – Villman Computers
- Corporate Partner of the Year – Zenshin Systems Corporation
- Outstanding Performance of the Year – MDR Microware Sales, Inc.
- Breakthrough Partner of the Year – Arriola Enterprises
- Rising Star Awards – Calvelo Engineered Systems
During the awarding, Chester Alanes, IMVI Product Manager for Cisco said:
Our goal is to create a lasting memory of appreciation through this remarkable event that will visualize the achievements of our partners.
In addition, IMVI and Cisco also announced their 3Q activities and their latest marketing program, the KFC Streetwise Campaign. The aim of the program is to promote Cisco Small Business technology as an affordable option where high quality equipment can be bought at a fraction of the cost. For every purchase of selected Cisco Small Business solutions, a Streetwise coupon will be given.
