March 24, 2020 – Irvine, Calif. – Responding to the financial constraints and market challenges U.S. and Canadian small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) are facing, Ingram Micro Inc. today released two new partner financing programs; extending $110 million in additional credit to approximately 2,000 channel partners across North America; temporarily waiving any fees associated with the majority of its partner financing program; and now offering exclusive terms to members of the Ingram Micro SMB Alliance and Trust X Alliance communities.

Weighing in on the new financing resources, Ingram Micro Chief Financial Executives Kelly Carter (Canada) and Anthony Mackle (U.S.) note: “Our channel partners and their customers need the funding and flexibility to make the right business technology decisions for their organizations, now and in the future. Our teams worked smart and fast to customize programs that will work best for the type of solutions our partners are delivering, and for the business climate expected in the weeks and months ahead.”
