ePlus Honored with Social Impact Partner of the Year Award for the Americas at Cisco Partner Summit 2021

HERNDON, VA – December 2, 2021 – ePlus inc. (NASDAQ NGS: PLUSnews) today announced that it is the recipient of a Cisco® Partner Summit Geographical Region award for Social Impact Partner of the Year. Cisco announced the winners during its annual partner conference, this year held digitally.

The Social Impact Partner of the Year Award is given to a partner that embodies a commitment to making a positive impact on the world. The partner receiving this award is expected to demonstrate a visible and meaningful commitment to corporate social responsibility through investment and action. This may include: making a direct positive impact in the communities in which their employees work and live, giving significant time, energy, skills or investment to making a substantial and lasting difference in the lives and welfare of others, or being an exemplar in the arena of social responsibility.

“Cisco is proud to work together with leading partners to drive digital transformation, creating powerful solutions and fresh approaches to meet the needs of our customers,” said John Moses, vice president, Americas Partner Organization at Cisco. “It’s a privilege to recognize ePlus with a Cisco Partner Summit Geo-Region award as Social Impact Partner of the Year, further underscoring its outstanding accomplishments across the U.S.”

“Social impact isn’t just about the corporate social responsibility efforts we undertake, but about the people we are able to help and the positive outcomes we enable with our technology, our passion and our expertise,” said Mark Marron, president and CEO of ePlus. “We were recognized with the Social Impact Partner of the Year Award, in part, for a successful engagement with Rowan University where implementation of a cloud-based, contact center solution enabled its approval as an initial COVID vaccine distribution center. We were also recognized for our ongoing efforts around the Girls Re-Imagining Tomorrow (GRIT) program, which each year provides  mentorship, education and training about careers in technology to middle school girls. This award recognizes both the widespread impact of our technology solutions in action as well as the positive difference we’re making with our CSR efforts. We’re very proud of both of these initiatives as well as the many other similar, meaningful contributions of our employees around the country and beyond.” 

Cisco Partner Summit Geographical Regional awards reflect the top-performing partners within specific technology markets across the geographical region. All award recipients are selected by a group of Cisco Global Partner Organization and regional executives.
