FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Quest® Recognized as Cisco TelePresence Video Express Authorized Technology Provider Partner in the USA

Sacramento, CA: March 5, 2012 -- Quest® announced today that it has achieved TelePresence Video Express Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes Quest as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence Video products and solutions at the Express level.

The Cisco TelePresence Video Express ATP Program is focused on providing a new way of working, in which everyone, everywhere can be more productive through face-to-face collaboration with TelePresence Video solutions. The Express-level program’s goal is to enable partners to market Cisco TelePresence Video endpoints, offer targeted infrastructure solutions, and differentiate themselves based on their breadth of unique audiovisual integration skills.

"Quest’s customers are increasingly embracing video and collaboration as a work practice that permeates not only enterprise environments but also SMBs." states Tim Burke, Quest President and CEO. "As the need for interconnectivity scales within the organization, Quest brings the proven experience and technical expertise to provide our customers with the tools and services needed for a robust telepresence experience."

"The Cisco TelePresence Video Express ATP Program is designed to enable partners to take advantage of the tremendous market opportunities ahead — not only in the telepresence space but also in the overall collaboration market," said Richard McLeod, senior director of collaboration for worldwide channels at Cisco. "As a Cisco TelePresence Video Express ATP Partner, Quest has made an investment in the sales, technical and life cycle services capabilities to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive and interoperable Cisco TelePresence Video portfolio."

The Cisco Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program is part of the Cisco go-to-market strategy for emerging technologies. The program helps Cisco to define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support an emerging technology. As the market changes, an ATP designation may be discontinued or may evolve into a Cisco specialization.
