Logicalis US Garners Cisco Best Integrated Marketing Campaign Award at Cisco’s Marketing Velocity Event in Cannes France

Solution Provider Creates Superhero, Flex Fantastic, to Lead Clients through FlexPod Education

NEW YORK, April 23, 2013 – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (http://www.us.logicalis.com/), announced today that it is the recipient of a Cisco Best Integrated Marketing Campaign award. Cisco unveiled the 20 global winners April 17th at its annual Marketing Velocity conference in Cannes, France.

“Cisco is proud to work with so many well-respected and industry-leading channel partners and distributors, and it is an honor to recognize Logicalis as a Cisco Best Integrated Marketing Campaign award winner,” says Sherri Liebo, vice president, Global Partner Marketing at Cisco.  “The Best Integrated Marketing Campaign award presented to Logicalis US recognizes its marketing excellence and quality execution in 2012.”

“Logicalis won this award for our creation of the ‘Flex Fantastic’ campaign offering a fun, interactive way to learn more about the FlexPod architecture for the simplification of data center transformations,” says April Harrington, marketing manager for Logicalis US.  “The campaign stressed FlexPod’s flexibility through the creation of a likeable cartoon character, Flex Fantastic, the superhero of data center infrastructures, who led potential clients on a quest to learn more about FlexPod in order to defeat the dreaded ‘Frankenvironment,’ which was representative of an outdated, unresponsive data center,” Harrington adds.

Cisco Best Integrated Marketing Campaign awards reflect a channel partner’s excellence in marketing and campaign execution measured by use of Cisco resources, creativity and innovation, business impact, and alignment to Cisco.
