Once upon a time, the Cisco Quick Reference was free to download. Then you had to pay for it. Now it’s free again. Does that tell you anything ?
Why would Cisco charge for the most basic piece of sales reference material ? It always baffled me to understand why Cisco Marketing would think that making resellers PAY for marketing material would be good business. Given that for many SMB and mid-level resellers the CPQRG is an indispensable reference why would you outsource it to Nationsprint so that they can make a profit ?. I used to receive a printed copy every three to six months and always carried it with me.
Anyone wanna bet that they didn’t sell many ? I never bought one and would never pay money for it. Would you ?
