HillSouth Announces Cisco Premier Certification

Florence, S.C., July 2, 2013 – IT consulting firm HillSouth announced today it has achieved Premier Certification from Cisco® in the United States.  To earn Premier Certification, HillSouth had to meet standards for networking competency, service, support and customer satisfaction set forth by Cisco.

HillSouth adds Premier to its ever-growing list of Cisco certifications. “Our Cisco certifications represent our continued investment in quality partnerships and continued education in our employees so that we can deliver advanced computing solutions for our clients,” said Founder and CEO Robby Hill. “We're proud that Cisco has recognized our investment and we look forward to continuing a long and fruitful relationship.”

As a Cisco Premier Certified Partner HillSouth demonstrates a range of technical expertise.  To achieve Cisco Premier Certification HillSouth was required to achieve the Cisco Express Foundation Specialization.
