Members of Tech ConneX gain access to a network of peers, as well as more than 100 solution architects from Westcon-Comstor and market-leading cybersecurity and networking vendors in the company’s portfolio. The platform offers various features, including the ability to receive near-real-time responses to direct messages, participate in Q&As and forum discussions, find and connect with local peers, join vendor groups, and develop skills. By actively using the features of Tech ConneX, partners can enhance their ability to support existing customers and win new customers, leading to business growth.

Expansion of the Tech Xpert Community

Cisco recently joined the Tech Xpert community, bringing the Comstor line of business into Tech Xpert for the first time. This addition has increased the total number of participating vendors to 16, further expanding the community and its resources.
