SMB the fastest-grow­ing seg­ment for Cisco In­dia

PCQuest - - SMB CORNER -

US-based tech gi­ant Cisco has said it has seen strong trac­tion in the small and medium busi­ness (SMB) seg­ment and has added 5,000 new cus­tomers this year in In­dia.

SMB is the fastest-grow­ing seg­ment for Cisco in In­dia, ex­pand­ing at about 20 per cent year-on-year.

“We are see­ing sig­nif­i­cant trac­tion in our SMB busi­ness, thanks to ‘Start’ port­fo­lio. Since the launch of Cisco Start port­fo­lio in FY17, we have on-boarded 5,000 new cus­tomers in a year,” Sud­hir Na­yar, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor - Com­mer­cial Sales, Cisco In­dia and SAARC, told PTI.

He added that the com­pany is on track to reach its aim of tripling its SMB cus­tomer base to 75,000 by 2020. The firm cur­rently has 25,000-30,000 SMB cus­tomers in In­dia.

Ear­lier this year, Cisco had launched ‘Start’ to of­fer a new set of so­lu­tions to help clients go dig­i­tal with wire­less, se­cure con­nec­tiv­ity for as less as $70 per user per year. The largest sec­tor within SMBs for Cisco is IT/IT-en­abled ser­vices. “We are also see­ing strong de­mand from small-scale man­u­fac­tur­ing, re­tail, e-com­merce, lo­gis­tics, ed­u­ca­tion, lo­gis­tics, hos­pi­tal­ity,” he said.
