Take the Meraki Challenge and Find out if Cloud Managed IT is Right for Your Business

We all hear that the role of IT in today’s companies is becoming increasingly complex. In Canada and around the world, companies are faced with this challenge on a daily basis.

Want proof? A report posted on Information Age indicates that 70% of businesses say that IT operations are holding them back. Companies need a solution that simplifies daily IT management so their valuable IT staff can focus on new business models and strategies.


Cue Cisco Meraki

With an easy-to-use network management system that works for large distributed global networks and mid-sized networks, Cisco Meraki is the ideal solution for Canadian businesses. In fact, companies can choose from a cloud managed network or hybrid system that leverages their current infrastructure. You don’t need an “always-on” cloud connection since only the management is done through the cloud. Meraki works for any network of any scale: mid-market or enterprise. Period.

Did I mention it’s easy-to-use? Cisco Meraki makes networking so simple that companies can deploy and troubleshoot it from anywhere. IT no longer needs to travel to branch locations to set up new sites. Instead, that can be done quickly and easily with any browser through a single easy-to-use online dashboard. We’re talking minutes vs. days.

But don’t just take my word for it. Take the Meraki Challenge and see for yourself how fast and easy network management can be.

It’s a fun, easy way to win prizes while trying the live Meraki dashboard. Just take the Challenge and see how long it takes you to answer the questions. You could qualify to win an Apple or Android smartwatch, or the grand prize – a tropical vacation!

Cisco Meraki has come a long way in the last couple of years. What was once a cloud managed wi-fi offering is now a complete network solution with switching, security, lwan and routing functionality. I encourage you to Take the Meraki Challenge now, and why not share your scores below using #merakichallenge.
