Flagship Vendor of Ingram Micro Cloud Services Marketplace Looks to Build on Mutual Success in North America
Autotask Corporation, the world’s leading provider of hosted IT business management software, today announced that it has renewed its distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) for an additional three years. The renewal reinforces a technology and sales alliance the two companies have enjoyed since 2006 when Autotask was chosen as the preferred professional services automation supplier for Ingram Micro’s growing base of reseller, managed service provider (MSP) and cloud service provider partners in North America.
The agreement’s three-year term allows both companies greater opportunities to work on longer term strategic and tactical initiatives. As a result of the extended agreement, the company’s flagship software, Autotask Pro, will continue to be featured in the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace which provides channel partners access to hundreds of business, strategy, marketing, technical and sales resources.
More than 3,000 solution providers and MSPs access the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplaceto take advantage of the more than 750 free reference documents, sales resources and marketing tools available online at www.ingrammicrocloud.com. Autotask software has been a part of the portfolio since 2007.
“We have a tremendous, ongoing relationship with Ingram Micro and I am pleased to announce that we’ve renewed and extended our resell agreement for another three years,” said Jake Carroll, Autotask Vice President for Channel Sales. “We’ve enjoyed great success working closely with Ingram Micro to better service the business and technology needs of our mutual channel partners and continue to gain momentum within the distributor’s North America partner base.”
“Ingram Micro’s relationship with Autotask runs deep and represents an instrumental alliance within our Services Division,” says Jason Bystrak, director of sales, Ingram Micro Services Division, North America. “It’s great to see us extend our relationship with Autotask and continue to work together to help channel partners gain the business value and customer service edge IT service automation and management delivers.”
Autotask Pro is a SaaS-based, IT business management platform designed to streamline and optimize business processes for technology solution providers. The software integrates a broad range of critical business systems, including customer relationship management (CRM), service desk, tech scheduling, project management, billing and reporting. Additionally, Autotask’s open platform provides an opportunity for technology integrations with many of the cloud and managed service solutions available in the cloud marketplace, resulting in increased automation and scalability while reducing data entry requirements and lost data.
The announcement was made this week during Ingram Micro’s 2012 Cloud Summit, the IT industry’s leading channel-focused education and training event that illustrates to managed service providers (MSPs) and solution providers throughout North America how to monetize the cloud using innovative go-to-market strategies, solutions and services.
