“Ingram Micro Cloud's technology platform was the clear leader in both depth and breadth from the many platforms we reviewed. That fact, coupled with their deep industry expertise and ability to help guide us into the cloud services market, made it the clear choice for this critical partnership. We were able to launch quickly and leverage all of their out-of-the-box features yet still easily customize and configure elements unique to CDWs specific requirements.”
