Does Cisco have any "Battle Cards" against Mitel and Shortel? I am working on a Collaboration Breakaway opportunity and I'm curious if Cisco has published material for Cisco partners to knock these two competitors out?
Yes there are competitive documents posted internally
Check out the all aboard the express slides IV and V and you will see some points in mitel and Shoretel

Hi there, thanks for the link but it only has Shortel. Any chance you can point me in the direction of information that would help me position Cisco against Mitel?
It might help if you look at the latest Gartner evaluation of all of the manufacturers in the industry.
You need to be a certified Cisco Partner, and you will need to register with Cisco. At the top of this page, you can see "Partners." Click on that and then click on "Get Partner Access" at the bottom of the pop-up menu. Follow the instructions, and you are on your way.
I hope this helps.

I am a Cisco Partner and Partner admin (that is why this is so confusing)... I am a Cisco HCS partner and Collaboration Architecture Specialized. I get thsi crazy screen that doesn't even load all the way (see attached).
That is strange. Since this is an older thread, perhaps the information has been moved or is no longer available. My suggestion would be to start a new thread in the Partner Community. Perhaps a colleague or Cisco expert will be able to provide you with the resources you are seeking.
Hi Philip - Sorry for the frustration. Can you please send me your business name and email address? I'll do my best to get you what you need by end of day. You can private message me or email me at streaves at cisco dot com.
