Ingram Micro Wins 2023 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award

Ingram Micro Wins 2023 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award

Each year, Microsoft selects its Partner of the Year honorees. This year, Ingram Micro earned the 2023 Indirect Provider Microsoft Partner of the Year Award! 

This award is a competitive, worldwide recognition of excellence among Microsoft partners. The Indirect Provider Partner of the Year Award recognizes empowerment of customer transformation through a value based, solution-provider model that reaches resellers at scale to drive usage, consumption, and customer acquisition growth across the partner channel. This award recognizes Ingram Micro’s proven ability to deliver more value to our partners and help them grow with Microsoft.  

Ingram Micro’s Transformation Journey 

We’ve been on a transformation journey centered around our partners, providing more ways to run their business better and more profitably, so they can grow faster and do more for their customers. This Microsoft award celebrates Ingram Micro’s innovative spirit and ability to drive growth for channel partners.  

How Ingram Micro helps partners grow a profitable business, leading with Microsoft: 

  • Automation through Xvantage, our AI-Driven e-commerce platform that provides our partners with access to a tailored single-pain-of-glass view unique to their business. This is a gamechanger in distribution, helping partners manage their daily operations more efficiently through integrations and data driven insights. 

  • Dedicated Microsoft experts from pre-sales through implementation and delivery, helping partners maximize growth and uncover new opportunities for their business, without needing to expand their sales or technical bench. 

  • Investments in partners that drive enablement and customer outcomes through tailored partner programs. These investments also span into engineering, service delivery, and financial solutions, giving our partners real time Microsoft promotions through our advanced API connections, the ability to leverage service delivery capabilities through our Center of Excellence (COE), and creative financing for partners. 

  • Best-in-class support taking the administrative load off our partners as customer challenges arise, paired with Customer Success Managers to drive growth and ongoing utilization of all that Ingram Micro has to offer. 

Operational Excellence Award Finalist 

In addition to our worldwide recognition for the 2023 Indirect Provider Microsoft Partner of the Year Award, Ingram Micro was named the worldwide finalist for the Operational Excellence Award. The Operational Excellence Award recognizes a partner who excelled in driving superior execution excellence which has resulted in demonstrated digital and business transformation that meets or exceeds customer satisfaction. Ingram Micro’s innovative approach to Microsoft’s New Commerce Experience (NCE) migrations over the past year was a contributing factor to this recognition – taking the administrative work out of partners' hands with our auto migration tool and ongoing enablement sessions.

Proof is in the Partnership 

We share this year's honors with our partners, without whom our success would not be possible. We are excited about what we will accomplish together in the coming year by building an even stronger community of technology innovators who help their customers thrive. If you are not an existing partner of ours and are ready to start or scale your business, we are here to support you – become a partner.
