“Aruba has earned the trust of the IT channel, and is a welcome addition to Ingram Micro’s federal portfolio,” says John Santoru, president, HOLMANS USA Corporation. “Ingram Micro has been a strategic partner to HOLMANS for many years, and continues to help us grow, differentiate and add more value to our federal business for our customers.”
Since 2013, Ingram Micro has collaborated with Aruba to provide end-to-end solutions to help channel partners build and meet their customers’ networking needs seamlessly. This new federal authorization rounds out the complete portfolio and support Ingram Micro provides for Aruba and gives channel partners access to a greater breadth of partners.
“For nearly 20 years Ingram Micro has helped channel partners navigate the complexities and needs of federal, state, and local, and education markets to drive optimized environments and grow sales, margin and market share,” says Jamie Ferullo, director, Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro. “Adding the Aruba Federal business is a timely and strategic win that builds on our value by expanding the choice and flexibility channel partners gain by working with Ingram Micro. We look forward to scaling our success with Aruba and our mutual channel partners.”
Working in conjunction with its Promark Technologies team, Ingram Micro has streamlined the sales cycle of federal contracts, offering authorized channel partners support throughout the entire sales engagement starting at identifying and quoting deals to deploying the technology.
