Disty earns accolades for supporting F5’s UNITY program partners
For the fourth time in five years, F5 recognized Ingram Micro as its distributor of the year for driving double-digit sales growth and enabling solution providers in the networking vendor’s UNITY Partner Program.
The Lowdown: Ingram Micro received the honors at F5’s Partner Leadership Summit last month, earning the UNITY Partner Program 2018 North America Distributor of the Year award.
The Details: Ingram Micro provides F5 partners with sales and marketing support, offers professional and ongoing SOC services, and facilitates training and certification around F5 solutions. Through those services, the distributor aims to help the vendor’s partners take advantage of opportunities in cloud-enabled networking and build recurring revenue. In addition, the distributor works closely with F5 on quarterly business reviews.
The Buzz: “Being honored four times in five years is a reflection of the commitment and engagement of our F5 team, and our ability and willingness to bring the full capabilities of Ingram Micro to bear on a partnership that delivers such value to our channel partners,” said Eric Kohl, executive director of Advanced Solutions at Ingram Micro. “Success happens when everyone works collaboratively to deliver the best service and solutions we can to the channel, and that captures what we’ve achieved with F5, engaging with them at every step of the sales cycle right through to deployment and professional services.”
