LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2013) - Digital Signage Expo -- AVAD and the ProAV / Digital Signage Business Unit (BU) of Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) are teaming up once again to demonstrate and discuss the industry's latest ProAV and digital signage trends at this year's Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, Feb. 27-28, in booth #1602. The alliance marks the second year in a row the two lines of business have come together at the Digital Signage Expo to show the competitive advantages Ingram Micro brings to channel partners focused on ProAV and digital signage.
"ProAV and digital signage are among the IT industry's top-performing technology categories and represent a growing marketplace for us and our mutual channel partners," says Jim Annes, general manager, AVAD, an Ingram Micro subsidiary and the industry's leading supplier to custom installers of ProAV solutions and professional services. "Recognized as an experience-oriented category, ProAV and digital signage solutions are changing how companies communicate and how consumers engage. It's a greenfield of opportunity that we're ensuring our channel partners are well positioned to capture."
To accelerate success, Ingram Micro's ProAV / Digital Signage BU and AVAD have come together to offer channel partners a comprehensive and specialized solutions portfolio. Additionally, AVAD and Ingram Micro channel partners gain access to high-value, business enablement resources such as dedicated credit analysts and field-based and cross-trained technical support teams, as well as pre- and post-sales representatives, targeted marketing programs and vendor management experts.
"One of the biggest differentiators for Ingram Micro and AVAD is our ability to sell across the entire technology spectrum and truly enable our channel partners' success in all they do," says Kevin Prewett, senior director of Ingram Micro's ProAV / Digital Signage BU. "The Digital Signage Expo is a great show to demonstrate our market leadership and the unique business value we bring as a single-source provider for everything from core infrastructure hardware to customizable content software solutions and professional AV services."
