Ingram Micro is expanding its IoT portfolio in North America with the addition of CAD, PLM, IoT, and Augmented Reality solutions from tech innovator PTC Inc. The new distribution relationship is a first for PTC within North America and provides Ingram Micro’s channel partners with the opportunity to deliver digital transformation solutions within key engineering and industrial markets.
The addition of PTC’s entire product portfolio is synergistic with other Ingram Micro providers and introduces the concept of “Digital Thread” to the channel.
“A digital thread creates a closed loop between the physical and digital worlds to optimize products, people, processes, and places,” said Don Cooper, SVP, Partner Programs and Strategy at PTC. “Using PTC’s software solutions, channel partners can drive this digital transformation faster and bring more value to the globally connected economy.”
“We are honored to welcome PTC and serve as their first North American distributor,” says Eric Hembree, Director of IoT, U.S. at Ingram Micro. “Demand for IoT and mixed reality remains strong, and the addition of PTC expands our portfolio and enhances our ability to provide our channel partners with a wide range of best-in-class solutions that will help our partners and their customers run smarter, grow faster and do more.”
Adding a new presence to the Ingram Micro line card, the alliance is also expected to help PTC broaden its reach and further enable businesses to drive digital transformation on the premise, in cloud, or through a SaaS platform.
