Ingram Micro Expands North America Channel Finance Strategy

Ingram Micro has announced an expanded channel finance strategy that extends across the U.S. and Canada, welcomes new regional leadership, and introduces enhanced creative financing solutions to fuel channel partners’ growth.

The expanded portfolio of Ingram Micro financial services now includes:

  • Ingram Micro Flexible Payment Solutions – These solutions expand upon the former Ingram Micro Lease-IT! program, offering increased breadth of customized payment solutions, including “as-a-service” financing, consumption models, annuity financing, and our flexible rental and lease options. The majority of Ingram Micro’s new flexible payment solutions are available in both the U.S. and Canada.
  • Ingram Micro Managed Services Financing – Solving the cashflow crunch for a growing MSP practice, Ingram Micro Managed Services Financing is now available to channel partners in the U.S. and Canada. The program has been in play with select Ingram Micro channel partners in the U.S. for the past three years, and is now generally available across North America.
  • Ingram Micro Direct Express –Direct Express is now offering additional credit capacity and working capital support for U.S. partners and will be launched in Canada in early 2020. Based on partner feedback, Direct Express now provides streamlined support for multi-year software deals.

As part of its new and expanded channel finance strategy and solutions portfolio, Ingram Micro aligned the leadership goals of its U.S. and Canadian financing teams—promoting Kelly Carter to chief country financial officer for Canada and John Bak to executive director of credit and financial solutions for Ingram Micro U.S.

In her new role, Carter will continue working closely with Ingram Micro’s U.S. and Latin America chief financial officer Anthony Mackle to help channel partners across the Americas differentiate and close more deals using Ingram Micro’s proven creative finance solutions.
