MANILA, Philippines — ePLDT, the ICT arm of PLDT Enterprise, has bagged anew a regional partner award from global information technology and networking company Cisco.

Cisco recognized ePLDT as its small business partner for best Cisco designed portfolio for program adoption after attaining the highest revenues among its peers in Asia- Pacific, Japan and China.

The recognition is proof of ePLDT’s endeavor of supporting businesses through Cisco Design, Cisco’s new technology portfolio for small and medium-scale businesses, according to ePLDT president and CEO Jovy Hernandez.

“As a premier integrator partner of Cisco, ePLDT has been actively empowering businesses as they embrace digital transformation to pivot and thrive amid these uncertain times. We thank Cisco for this recognition, and we are more driven to steering our clients and this partnership forward,” Hernandez said.

Last year, ePLDT was recognized as the Cisco’s Software Partner of 2020 and Small Business Partner of 2020.

Similarly, Cisco hailed PLDT Inc. as its Tier 2 Partner of the year during its annual Partner Summit Conference.

Robin Llamas, Cisco Philippines head of public sector, small business and mid-market teams and interim managing director, lauded ePLDT for another fruitful partnership over the past year.

“We congratulate ePLDT for being our APJC Small Business Partner for Best Cisco Designed Portfolio Adoption. This is a well-deserved accolade in recognition of your relentless efforts in serving our clientele, and we hope that you reap more successes as we continue to nurture this partnership,” he said.

ePLDT and Cisco have been partners since 2002, initially focusing on delivering enterprise networking architecture solutions.

Through the years, the partnership expanded to cater small and medium-scale businesses and other advanced services along with its initial market of large enterprise customers.

“As the needs of the enterprises continue to evolve, we are striving to provide solutions that will make them more resilient despite the most difficult economic conditions. Together with Cisco, we will continue to work at great lengths to reciprocate the trust and confidence of our customers,” PLDT first vice-president and head of PLDT Enterprise core business solutions group Jojo Gendrano said.
