Quest Achieves Gold Certification from Cisco Systems.

Sacramento, CA: November 17, 2005 – Quest announced today that it has achieved Gold Certification from Cisco Systems®. The Cisco® Channel Partner program provides Quest with the resource framework to develop an expertise to sell, plan, design, implement and operate Cisco networking solutions. To earn Gold certification, Quest had to meet or surpass the stringent personnel, training, customer satisfaction, specialization, and post-sales support requirements set forth by Cisco.

"We’re pleased to have attained Cisco Gold Certification and value our relationship with Cisco Systems," said Tim Burke, CEO of Quest. "Gold Certification is a mark of excellence and we’re particularly pleased about this advancement after many years as a Cisco Gold Partner. Our investment in achieving Gold Certification is a reflection of our commitment to continually enhance our customer service which fits in perfectly at Quest. Customer satisfaction has always been a huge priority for us, and we’re proud of our recent rating of 4.54 out of a possible 5 in Cisco’s annual customer satisfaction survey."

"We are committed to creating the tools, training and programs that help drive channel partner growth." Said Keith Goodwin, senior vice president, Worldwide Channels for Cisco. "With this achievement Quest has secured the training, skills and knowledge to play a pivotal role in accelerating the adoption of Cisco technology solutions."
