Ingram Micro EMEA bags RIM software rights

by Stuart Wilson, Thursday 14 February 2008

“We are delighted to add the renowned BlackBerry solution to our European mobility portfolio. This agreement offers great growth perspectives for our European customers to further capture market share in the mobile convergence market,” said Jay Forbes, President, Ingram Micro EMEA.

“The channel plays an increasingly central role in wireless and mobile connectivity and we are happy that RIM recognises the value of channel relationships and the effective results that can be achieved by partnering with Ingram Micro,” Forbes added.

Mobility and wireless offering

The agreement with RIM broadens Ingram Micro’s mobility and wireless offering in Europe as the distribution giant aims to become the leading channel partner in wireless and mobile technology solutions. Ingram claims that its expanded product and service set will allow reseller customers to take full advantage of the growth opportunities that the mobile and wireless market has to offer. The BlackBerry software is available through Click2License, Ingram Micro’s licensing platform.

For corporate customers, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and Novell GroupWise and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based wireless access to email, calendar, contacts, notes, tasks and other corporate data.

BlackBerry Professional Software is based on the BlackBerry Enterpriser Server software and targets small and medium-sized businesses, providing access for up to 30 wireless users. The software can be installed onto a company’s in-house Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino server, eliminating the need for additional hardware and operating system licenses.
