On June 30th Ingram Micro announced it had acquired with Rollouts, the Minneapolis-area IT services company that among many things has done a lot of digital signage deployments around the United States and Canada.

Rollouts’ unique and national technicians network, experienced project management team and extensive online project tracking tool are expected to immediately enhance the high-value portfolio of professional services now available to Ingram Micro channel partners.  As an integral part of Ingram Micro Professional Services, Rollouts will build upon its specialization within key vertical markets including retail, healthcare, finance, education and the public sector, to empower Ingram Micro channel partners with the technical expertise and field-deployable resources needed to realize the promise of technology .

“Ingram Micro is maximizing value for our channel partners by bringing to market the solutions, services and support they need to compete more effectively, scale their market reach and expand their technical expertise and professional services capabilities with ease and greater cost efficiency,” says Paul Bay, president, North America Technology Solutions, Ingram Micro Inc.  “Adding Rollouts’ proven and highly scalable workforce and project management services to our professional services portfolio will further enable our channel partners to pursue larger deals with confidence and look to Ingram Micro Professional Services as an extension of their own IT services practice.”

Rollouts’ current CEO Mark Webster will lead the services practice as director, North America Deployment Services, reporting to Greg Richey, director, Professional Services for Ingram Micro.

So now you have a massive distribution company that can do more than just give you a price and sell you stuff. They can put it in, as well, or sell you the services to get it put in. Hmmm.
