Director of Cloud Services, ACP CreativIT

Since 1984, ACP CreativIT has provided world-class technology solutions to its customers with unwavering commitment. Its 2018 merger with Camera Corner Connecting Point, an organization with a long history of offering Microsoft products, has helped the business carry out this mission. To strengthen its ability to become a preferred IT and managed services partner, the company relies on Ingram Micro—not just as a distributor, but for the many perks it provides. By tapping into Modern Workplace Accelerate, the company has been able to double its cloud revenue year over year. In the near future, it has its sights set on quadrupling its business.

Challenge

ACP CreativIT entered the tech space in the 1980s, going from hardware provider to value-added reseller to cloud service provider (CSP) and managed service provider (MSP). To give itself an extra edge as it continued to evolve, the company needed a distributor that could offer a wide range of tools and resources.

Solution

Shortly after transitioning to managed services, ACP CreativIT discovered that Ingram Micro was more than just a distributor. Yes, it could help the company deliver cutting-edge solutions from leading vendors to its customers. But it could also provide the business with an array of offerings to propel its Microsoft 365 practice and CSP program forward. ACP CreativIT found this added value through Modern Workplace Accelerate.
