Ingram Micro Cloud announced that its Cloud Marketplace will include key solutions from Salesforce, including Salesforce Essentials, a solution for small businesses.
“Salesforce Essentials is purpose-built to give small businesses access to the tools they need to better connect with customers,” says Meredith Schmidt, executive vice president and GM of Essentials and SMB at Salesforce. “At a time when small businesses are facing new and unfamiliar challenges, we hope to bring critical small business tools and resources to Ingram Micro Cloud’s community of reselling partners and small business customers.”
In addition, Ingram Micro Cloud will provide sales support, helping Ingram Micro resellers to more effectively position the Essentials solution for small business customers.
“These are challenging times for all businesses, but in particular, for small businesses,” said Nimesh Davé, executive vice president of Global Cloud Computing at Ingram Micro. “This agreement further strengthens our marketplace of cloud solutions addressing the unique needs of small businesses.”
Operating in 64 countries with more than 55,000 reseller partners, Ingram Micro Cloud offers more than 120 SaaS and IaaS cloud solutions with automated go-to-market and integration tools, technical expertise to support vendors, resellers and managed service providers.
The expansion of Ingram Micro Cloud’s North America vendor portfolio is expected to empower small businesses with the Salesforce architecture to assist in sales and customer service needs.
