HERNDON, Va., Feb. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ePlus inc. (Nasdaq:PLUS)
today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, ePlus Technology inc., has
again achieved a Customer Satisfaction Excellence Gold Star from Cisco. This
designation recognizes ePlus for delivering outstanding customer service to
customers in the United States.

“We’re pleased to be recognized by Cisco with this highest customer
satisfaction distinction for the fifth consecutive quarter,” said Jerry
McIntosh, vice president of advanced technology solutions for ePlus
Technology. “Achieving Cisco Channel Customer Satisfaction Excellence again
this quarter reinforces our commitment to delivering integrated Cisco
technology solutions with the highest quality customer experience,
empowering them to reduce risk and enhance efficiency–and change the way

“Customer service is a cornerstone of the Cisco Resale Channel Program.
We are pleased to recognize and congratulate ePlus for achieving outstanding
customer satisfaction,” said Edison Peres, senior vice president of the

Cisco measures the customer satisfaction levels achieved by its Gold,
Silver, and Premier Certified partners based on regional target goals,
providing a weighted average of a partner’s pre- and post-sales support over
a rolling 12-month period. Partners that achieve outstanding customer
satisfaction are awarded the Customer Satisfaction Excellence Gold Star.

The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides a framework for partners to build
the sales, technical, and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills required to
deliver Cisco solutions to customers. Through the program’s specializations
and certifications, Cisco recognizes a partner’s expertise in deploying
solutions based on Cisco advanced technologies and services. Using a
third-party audit process, the program validates partner qualifications such
as technology skills, business best practices, customer satisfaction, and
pre-sales and post-sales support capabilities–critical factors in choosing
a trusted partner.
