SIMPLIFY AND OPTIMISE YOUR SOFTWARE INVESTMENTS
THE CISCO ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT (CISCO EA) IS IDEAL IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR FINANCIAL PREDICTABILITY, A SIMPLIFIED IT ENVIRONMENT, OR HAVE A TECHNOLOGY GROWTH PLAN.
With the pace of digital transformation, managing software is more complex than ever. Therefore, the Cisco EA software-buying program is designed to help you buy, consume and manage Cisco technology across the software portfolio with a 3- or 5-year cross-platform agreement, and unified terms and conditions. With an EA, you simply select what you want, add as you grow, and deploy where you need to in the way that best suits your business.
EASY COME, EASY GO
With a focus on ease of use, EAs can be best explained as:
EASY TO BUY
With a cross-portfolio agreement, you have access to software catalogues across technology domains with unique value in each enrolment.
EASY TO CONSUME
With True Forward, which means no retroactive billing, you have access to new software and on-demand deployment.
EASY TO MANAGE
Know where you stand in one workspace, with co-termination of software subscriptions.
GOOD TO KNOW
When it comes to realising the benefits of the Cisco EA, we’re here to ensure you get it right. At Softcat, we’ll invest time in learning what you are trying to achieve and what you actually need – rather than just conducting a transactional purchase. We’ll lead with your desired outcomes and find a solution to meet it. Then, we’ll leverage all the licence features that you may or may not know you have in order to optimise renewal rates and expansion opportunities. What’s more, because we’re closely partnered with Cisco, we’re able to access your Cisco purchase history (following your completion of a letter of consent), which enables us to take a holistic view of your entire Cisco architecture. This means we can quickly find ways to consolidate your contracts, simplify your estate and realise potential cost savings.
