Ingram Micro and GoLive Systems Sign Distribution Agreement

Ingram Micro Becomes First Wholesaler to Distribute GoLive CyberStudio in the U.S.; Will Also Distribute in Canada and Latin America

SANTA ANA, Calif., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingram Micro Inc., (NYSE:IM) the world's leading wholesale distributor of technology products and services, and GoLive Systems Inc., announced today that the companies have signed an agreement making Ingram Micro the first wholesaler to distribute GoLive CyberStudio software in the U.S. Ingram Micro will also distribute the software throughout Canada and Latin America.

GoLive CyberStudio is a professional solution for visual layout, HTML source code editing, and Web site management. With this Web authoring tool, print and graphic designers can transfer their skills and expertise to the Web. This creates a unique product solution for resellers who can now go to their already established graphic design markets with a new product offering. GoLive CyberStudio also reaches beyond the typical WYSIWYG design tool to include HTML source-code and JavaScript tools, which helps Web designers and programmers make sites dynamic and user-interactive.

Al Mann, Ingram Micro's vice president of purchasing, said, "We are proud to offer GoLive CyberStudio software to our resellers. GoLive CyberStudio allows the Web author to utilize multimedia features easily to create and manage a professional-quality Web site -- without performing HTML programming."

"Solid distribution is a key step in building a successful sales channel," said Nilofer Merchant-Statton, vice president of worldwide sales for GoLive Systems. "With Ingram Micro as our partner, GoLive is able to focus its strengths on key initiatives -- channel marketing, training, and market development -- that will drive product sell-through."

The distribution agreement between Ingram Micro and GoLive provides a winning combination for the channel. In addition, GoLive is drumming up user and reseller demand through their GoLive Alliance programs including a 24-city roadshow, training, lead qualification and promotional campaigns.
