Distributor Ingram Micro Inc. has announced two service offerings for channel partners focused on the fast-growth ProAV and digital signage markets.
Effective immediately, Ingram Micro resellers now have premier access to Signage Valet, a fee-based online tool that helps users create, edit, and manage digital signage content. Ingram is also offering qualified channel partners a variety of pre- and post-build design services at no cost. These services can be used to create video walls, menu boards, kiosks, stadiums, sound, video, and more.
“Technology has changed the consumer and business landscape forever, creating a new digital normal for how we communicate and consume all types of services,” said Kevin Prewett, director of ProAV and digital signage at Ingram, in a press statement. “Demand for ProAV and digital services is growing at a rapid pace and presenting an incredible and ongoing service opportunity for channel partners with the right expertise and service capabilities. Our new content creation and design services give our channel partners a service advantage, allowing them to own the lifecycle and customer experience from design creation to installation and ongoing service management.”
“With Ingram Micro, we’re the expert and the single point of contact for anything and everything connected to IT that our customers need,” said Robert Nishida, president and owner of HDDS Design LLC, in a press statement. “ProAV and digital signage services are incremental sales opportunities channel partners can’t afford to ignore and customers can’t do without to stay relevant in the digital economy.”
In a similar move designed to help channel partners capitalize on a rapidly growing opportunity, Ingram Micro added bundled combinations of printers, supplies, and services to its managed print offerings last month.
