Ingram Micro Cloud Innovates to Expand the Ecosystem, Enhance the Customer Digital Experience and Generate More Business Value

Jaa

INGRAM MICRO CLOUD SUMMIT – Ingram Micro Inc. today announced the next iteration of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, adding new features, functionality and resources designed to help technology partners and independent software vendors (ISVs) to do more with more. Inspired by partner feedback, the new enhancements streamline and standardize processes, increase efficiencies and effectiveness in sales and marketing, and ultimately will make it easier for technology partners and ISVs to grow their business more profitably using the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.

Among the key enhancements and features readily available today as part of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace are:

Ingram Micro Connect – Powered by CloudBlue, Ingram Micro Connect is an easy-to-use, digital module that provides a fast and cost-effective way to publish, manage and promote cloud services to as many as 200,000 technology partners using Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. Ingram Micro Connect simplifies and automates distribution by providing robust publishing tools, digital contracting, multi-marketplace targeting, and sales and marketing content creation tools.

New Customer Experience – A new, modern UI for the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace featuring an updated, user-friendly interface that makes it easier for technology partners to find, navigate, and purchase cloud services while streamlining end-customer management.

Sales & Marketing Hub – An industry-first, digital suite for technology partners designed to help educate and enable their salespeople on cloud services while providing pre-built campaign templates and valuable marketing tools to their marketers. The complementary resource provides a single destination to discover and learn about cloud services, create and execute marketing campaigns, and customize sales enablement and access industry insights so they can be the go-to cloud experts for their customers.

Marketplace API – A new API that enables technology partners to quickly integrate their own online storefront, CRM and billing systems into the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. As a result, technology partners using the Cloud Marketplace can now better manage and automate ordering and billing; create and manage customer accounts, users and subscriptions; and retrieve billing data that can be used to bill end customers.

“Ingram Micro has elevated the experience our technology partners and ISVs are having with the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, enabling them simply to do more with more and capitalize on the growing opportunity cloud continues to deliver,” said Tarik Faouzi, Vice President of Cloud Product Management, Ingram Micro. “These enhancements, powered by CloudBlue, all tie to Ingram Micro’s overall vision to provide our partners a hyper-scale digital platform, access to an infinite ecosystem, and proven go-to-market services.”

Ingram Micro’s Cloud Marketplace was first to market in 2009, and is now used by more than 55,000 technology partners worldwide to manage nearly four million fully-automated seats. The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace can be found here.
