Intel has awarded Ingram Micro SA with authorised distributor status and officially acknowledged the value that Ingram Micro and its resellers bring to the Intel brand in South Africa.
The new status allows Ingram Micro it to make new inroads into the local technology reseller and system builder channel, by offering its customers a wider range of products.
Ingram Micro SA has full access to the Intel product range, which includes the processors and motherboards for desktops, servers and notebooks. The distributor also offers customers warranty swop-outs on Intel's behalf.
As an authorised distributor, Ingram Micro will now also be able to get its resellers involved in the various channel programmes and rebate schemes Intel has in place.
Damian Nelson, Intel product manager at Ingram Micro SA, says that its resellers are delighted with our increased Intel product offerings and the additional service offerings.
He adds that Intel's decision to promote Ingram's distribution status will be met by strong commitment from the distibutor.
