Getac, a designer and manufacturer of rugged mobile devices, has unveiled a partnership with the DC/POS BU of Ingram Micro's Specialty Solutions division, to distribute Getac's range of fully rugged tablets to the mobility sector across Western Europe. As a result of the partnership, Getac will gain access to Ingram Micro's network of some 90,000 resellers and benefit from its dedicated specialist teams across Europe, thanks to Ingram's DC/POS offices in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The partnership will help to meet growing demand for fully rugged devices in mobile markets, such as warehousing, transport and logistics, retail and hospitality, healthcare and field force automation. The partnership will also help to grow Getac’s brand and existing channel community.
Ingram will distribute Getac’s fully rugged tablet range - including the RX10, T800, F110, Z710 and V110 models - all offering 3D antenna for unprecedented connectivity and Lumibond screen technology for visibility in low or bright light conditions, as well as meeting industry standards for rugged devices and security.
Mark Cheetham, EMEA Director DC/POS at Ingram Micro says: "Getac rugged tablets are recognised for their reliability, security and durability and are a valuable addition to our portfolio. Getac takes a hands-on approach to its reseller partnerships, engaging on key sales with both partners and customers alike, leveraging our solutions team and expertise as well as providing speedy delivery."
"Partnering with Ingram Micro and its core specialist resellers expands our channel community and opens up new market opportunities", comments Paul Waddilove, Channel Director EMEA, Getac. "We're excited about the partnership and see this as a first step towards a broader relationship."

The transaction is subject to the approval of Ensim shareholders and other customary closing conditions. Alain Monié, Ingram Micro CEO, commented "This acquisition is an excellent complement to Ingram Micro and we look forward to Ensim joining our team." David Wippich, Ensim CEO, said "This is a superb next step for Ensim and we expect to leverage the financial strength, brand recognition and global infrastructure of Ingram Micro to further speed the growth of our business. Our customers and employees will benefit from this union and we are excited to partner with Ingram Micro."
A shareholder of broadliner Ingram Micro is hoping to stop the distributor's impending sale to Chinese conglomerate Tianjin Tianhai and has filed a lawsuit claiming that the US firm sold itself "too cheaply and via an unfair process". An unspecified stockholder has filed a lawsuit on behalf of all those who own shares in the broadliner. The plaintiff alleges that Ingram and its leadership have "breached their fiduciary duties" to those who hold stock in the New York-listed distribution firm. The alleged wrongdoing relates to Ingram's acquisition by Tianjin Tianhai, which was announced last month and is currently going through the approval process. The lawsuit – the ultimate goal of which is to "halt the proposed takeover" – claims that the €5.3b sale price "is grossly inadequate and undervalues Ingram Micro". Furthermore, the plaintiff believes the deal came to pass "via an unfair process". The all-cash agreement equates to a €35-per-share sale price, and a press release announcing the lawsuit claims that, on Monday, Ingram shares closed trading at €32.7. The release also points out that the distributor's sales have grown strongly in recent years, from €32.76b in 2011 to almost €41.94bn for the 53-week period to 3 January 2015 (source: Channelnomics Europe).
Broadliner Ingram Micro has enhanced its Cisco XCHANGE program for reseller partners in EMEA region. The enhanced XCHANGE program offers greater discounts across all Cisco architectures, comprising routing, switching, wireless, security, collaboration and data center. The streamlined process does not require deal registration or approval.
Working with Ingram Micro, resellers are able to deliver life cycle solutions and capture incremental business as they refresh existing customer product with Cisco-certified solutions through the XCHANGE program.
XCHANGE supports the environment and contributes to the circular economy by rewarding, with discounts, the removal and destruction of old products from Cisco and other selected networking vendors in an environmentally-friendly way and in line with local requirements.
XCHANGE is specifically for partners who are looking to do deals between €4,500 – 22,500. Generating the promotion code and applying the discount to the order is extremely easy and quick to do using the specially-developed and intuitive program tool.
Mark Chlebek, Senior Director - Advanced Solutions EMEA, Ingram Micro added "We had a very positive experience with the launch of the first version of this program in Europe. We believe this is a truly attractive and beneficial program for our reseller partners. The program enables resellers to be more competitive in the market and to be more profitable when selling Cisco."
