The Ingram Micro Difference
The growing adoption of “anytime, anywhere” work styles is driving businesses of all sizes to demand access to content and collaboration tools across multiple devices, including desktop computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets. Unified Communications & Collaboration (UCC) addresses this market opportunity through an emerging subset of technologies (i.e., middleware, communications platforms, user interfaces, etc.) that are designed to enhance business processes, streamline communications and improve productivity, while remaining device and application agnostic.
At the core of the UCC market is user experience, which ultimately drives adoption. Today’s users demand functionality, usability, availability, consistency and security from their UCC solutions. That’s where Ingram Micro can help!
As an Ingram Micro reseller, you have access to a wide variety of vendors to help your customers meet a variety of UCC requirements. We offer the largest solution set available in distribution – with over 1,700 vendor partners and many full product sets. View our Unified Communications & Collaboration Portfolio (UCC Portfolio Quick Start).
Professional & Training Services
Helping to speed the sales lifecycle, resellers and solution providers gain access to value-added pre- and post-sales services, including design and quoting support, targeted voice and video readiness assessments, implementation services, device management, onsite support and evaluation services to help you successfully advocate and advance the adoption of UCC solutions by your clients.
As a reseller and service provider, you’ll be able to pack more value into any UCC purchase by packaging professional and training services with it. Leveraging the capabilities of our experts, you can evaluate, discover, deploy, service and support new security solutions as part of your team or as an independent partner.
Through our Ingram Micro Link portal, you can expand your technical competency, extend your geographic reach and increase profitability through the expertise of other reseller partners and vendor technical resources in the Link community. And, you continue to maintain the relationship with the customer.
Ingram Micro offers several membership levels to meet the needs of all our resellers. Find out more at http://www.ingrammicro.com/.
