BEAR Data Solutions announced today that it has achieved a Customer
Satisfaction Excellence Gold Star from Cisco. This designation recognizes BEAR
Data for delivering outstanding customer service to customers in the United
States.

“BEAR Data is thrilled to be acknowledged for achieving Cisco Channel Customer
Satisfaction Excellence,” stated Don James, chief executive officer of BEAR
Data Solutions. “It is one of the highest distinctions a partner can achieve
within the Cisco Channel Partner Program, and this is important to BEAR Data
because Customer Satisfaction Excellence is a core value we both share and a
key driver of our current and future success.”

“Customer service is a cornerstone of the Cisco Resale Channel Program. We are
pleased to recognize and congratulate BEAR Data for achieving outstanding
customer satisfaction,” said Edison Peres, senior vice president of the
worldwide channels go-to-market group at Cisco.

Cisco measures the customer satisfaction levels achieved by its Gold, Silver,
and Premier Certified partners based on regional target goals, providing a
weighted average of a partner's pre- and post-sales support over a rolling
12-month period. Partners that achieve outstanding customer satisfaction are
awarded the Customer Satisfaction Excellence Gold Star and can be found using
the advanced search menu in the Cisco Partner Locator.

The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides a framework for partners to build
the sales, technical, and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills required to deliver
Cisco solutions to end customers. Through the program's specializations and
certifications, Cisco recognizes a partner's expertise in deploying solutions
based on Cisco advanced technologies and services. Using a third-party audit
process, the program validates partnerqualifications such as technology
skills, business best practices, customer satisfaction, and presales and
postsales support capabilities - critical factors in choosing a trusted
partner.
