In the first ever CxO breakfast forum of Cisco Systems Philippines held recently in Makati City dubbed ''Revolutionizing Business in the Internet's Economy'', top management was given a handle on how they can migrate their bricks-and mortar operations to an ebusiness organization.

The program also included discussions on the Internet’s impact to businesses, NetReadiness, success stories and a background on the Internet business solutions workshop.

Noel Rivera, country manager of Cisco Systems Philippines emphasized that the company has always adopted the out-of-the-box approach when it comes to providing solutions to their customers. “We always keep in mind that the New Internet Economy goes beyond marketing websites or selling goods and services on line. It is getting the right cost effective solutions so that your business can stay ahead of the competition.”

Cisco also reported that 70% of support calls are now resolved over the Internet with customer satisfaction consequently increasing significantly.
