Increase Your Profitability

Take Advantage of Your Cisco Partnership with New Incentives and Promotions

As part of our commitment to innovation, we enhanced our Channel Partner Program to align with Cisco's growth strategy, and give you, our channel partners, greater opportunities to increase revenue and drive profitability. The Channel Partner Program continues to offer certifications, specializations, and incentive programs.

With a majority of Cisco's enterprise and commercial business coming through channel partners, Cisco is dedicated to creating programs that improve partner profitability and foster mutual success.

Cisco Channel Incentive Programs are designed to reward partners who successfully align their business strategies in defined advanced technologies, new business, or solution sales opportunities. There are specific offerings defined under these programs.

Guide to Emerging Channels and Operations (GECO)

Channel Partners support is one of the priorities for Cisco in the Emerging Markets; this is why the Channel Programs and Operations team developed the Guide to Emerging Channels and Operations (GECO).

GECO is the result of partner feedback regarding the ongoing improvements to the ease of doing business with Cisco. Gathering the information on Cisco tools, the Channel Program, incentive programs, services and support in one guide will help partners navigate through Cisco Channel Partner requirements and use all benefits available.

GECO is a living document, so every new release of this guide is tailored to various business models offered to partners today. We encourage all partners to visit this site frequently for further updates on GECO.

Please be aware that GECO is intended to be a reference document that summarizes all the current tools, processes and programs. For full details please consult documents and Websites mentioned in this guide. Cisco reserves the right to modify or cancel the program at its discretion without prior notice to Channel Partners.
