Ingram Micro Offers Financial Partnership Program to its Trust X Alliance Members

Exclusive Program Offers Advanced Education and Financial Readiness Courses, Flexible and Extended Terms, Dedicated Financial Consultants and Custom Financing Services #TrustX2017

Orlando – May 25, 2017 – Trust X Alliance Invitational – Amplifying its top-performing partner’s sales potential, Ingram Micro Inc. today unveiled the Trust X Financial Partnership Program.

Available now to Trust X members in Canada, U.K. and U.S., the Trust X Financial Partnership Program is designed to speed the sales cycle around cloud, modern IT infrastructure and other advanced solutions and professional services by making it easier for channel partners to finance larger deals and grow their monthly recurring revenues.

“To bolster business and elevate valuation, channel partners must embrace a recurring revenue model and have ongoing access to a proven portfolio of flexible, customizable and scalable financial service offerings,” said Kelly Carter, executive director, Ingram Micro Financial Services.

Ingram Micro’s new Trust X financial services program offers the community access to a growing portfolio of flexible financing options and resources including a dedicated, field-ready financial services consultant and access to specialized education and training courses emphasizing financial and operational excellence, as well as business transformation. Additionally, all qualifying Trust X members receive benefits such as extended terms and the flexibility to explore and develop more custom financing services offerings for their company and customers.

Jim Veraldi, executive director, Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro and co-executive chair of Trust X adds, “There are no shortages of business benefits when it comes to using technology. There are, however, barriers to entry and financing is often at the top of the list for channel partners and their customers. This new Financial Partnership Program gives our Trust X Alliance members the ability to do more with more.”

Trust X Alliance council member and President and CEO of CXtec and TERACAI Pete Belyea sees tremendous value in the new program. “Financing is a clear differentiator – especially when you’re selling into larger organizations and deploying more advanced, high-ticket solutions and managed IT services. It’s great to see Ingram Micro bring yet another exclusive, business-building opportunity to the Trust X Alliance community.“

The Ingram Micro Trust X community is comprised of a select group of more than 330 of the highest-performing channel partners in Canada, U.K. and U.S, who represent more than $15 billion dollars in annual IT spend and IT services revenues. Recognized for its industry thought leadership, channel advocacy and philanthropic efforts, the Ingram Micro Trust X Alliance takes great pride in giving back to the greater community, as well as local and national charities.

“Trust X is unlike any other IT service provider community and takes great pride in serving as an indispensable partner to businesses big and small here, there and everywhere in the world,” concludes Veraldi. “This new and exclusive program from Ingram Micro Financial Services will work to accelerate Trust X’s sales success and help fuel the adoption of cloud and advanced solutions.”
