The group's solutions support moving and selling mobility products through
markets across the globe with a single, highly-integrated partner.

both companies, but today highlights an even more significant milestone for
our customers and vendors who now have access to the broadest portfolio of
mobility and converged technology products and the most comprehensive suite of
supply chain solutions for mobile devices," said Alain Monié, president and
CEO of Ingram Micro. "Ingram Micro Mobility is at the center of the flow of
