To help meet the increased demand for secure, cloud-based file sharing services across the Asia Pacific region, Ingram Micro (NYSE: IM) today announced the availability of Dropbox Business on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace in Singapore.
Through the Cloud Marketplace, channel partners can seamlessly purchase, provision, configure, and manage Dropbox Business, a leading provider of file sharing and collaboration services, via a single automated platform.
"The inclusion of Dropbox Business on our Cloud Marketplace improves our competitive position in the industry and strengthens our existing product portfolio to better serve the needs of channel partners and their customers," said Francis Choo, vice president & country chief executive ASEAN and Hong Kong, Ingram Micro. "Through the Cloud Marketplace's automated portal, channel partners can now quickly access and deploy an affordable and secure file sharing solution that enhances collaboration capabilities and drives new business opportunities in the cloud."
With today's evolving business landscape now yielding a workspace that is no longer confined to a fixed location, many companies have transitioned to cloud technologies to effectively and securely collaborate in real time. Considered one of the most widely adopted collaboration platforms on the market, Dropbox Business allows users to work anywhere and at any time, providing the capabilities to save, access, and sync critical files and workloads across multiple devices with ease.
Built on a highly scalable infrastructure, Dropbox Business also offers seamless integration with hundreds of existing third-party solutions, allowing channel partners the opportunity to attach relevant software offerings and deliver a comprehensive end-to-end solution to their strategic customer segments and vertical markets. Channel partners will soon have the opportunity to experience greater cross-sell opportunities by seamlessly attaching Dropbox Business to Microsoft Office 365 via Ingram Micro's productivity suite, and deliver an affordable and complete offering that boosts productivity and communication across key vertical markets. The ability to bundle and sell unique Dropbox Business offerings will also allow channel partners to leverage the largely untapped SMB space and drive greater business transformation in the cloud.
