    Meraki helps you stay competitive in the market and build profitable IT practices around a complete, cloud portfolio. Our simple, out-of-the-box products with advanced analytics are easy to understand and sell, and the intuitive licensing model provides you with a recurring revenue stream.

Why will your customers love Meraki?

    Your customers are moving to the cloud for all their IT needs: by next year, almost three quarters of all IT infrastructure, software, services, and technology spending will be cloud-based. On top of that, they are facing demanding IT challenges. Small businesses and global enterprises alike love the simple, yet powerful solutions that Meraki offers which not only help them save time and money with an intuitive, feature-rich interface that allows customers to manage their IT from anywhere in the world.

What’s in it for me?

  • Meraki as a platform
    Want to create your own solutions or managed services to generate long-term, recurring revenue? With our open API's and managed service-ready dashboard, you can get started in minutes.

How do you know when to offer Meraki?

    There are many reasons why your customers will choose Meraki, but keep an eye out if your customer talks to you about...

    • wanting to easily connect and manage their networks across thousands of sites
    • providing enterprise-class security and reassurance with just a few clicks
    • proactively ensuring a high-quality network experience
    • wanting state of the art analytics and intelligence
    • instant scalability if their needs change
    • increased productivity in the IT staff
    • future-proofing their IT investment and make their investment go further

Will I still be able to sell on-prem Cisco products?

    Because Meraki is part of Cisco, it's not one or the other when deciding to sell Meraki. The same is true for when your customers want to integrate Meraki into their existing IT operations: There's no need to rip and replace - Cisco and Meraki are better together, rather than alone.

What if I’m interested in managed services?

Setting up a recurring revenue model through managed services couldn’t be easier with Meraki. As more customers migrate towards subscription-based IT solutions, this is an opportunity for you to identify new revenue streams. Meraki provides all the resources you’ll need to get started with your new managed services business.
