Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services Wins 2019 Mobile Breakthrough Award
IRVINE, Calif., and INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., – Nov. 13, 2019 — Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services today announced it has been selected as the winner of the “Overall Mobility Management Solution Provider of the Year” award by Mobile Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization recognizing the top companies, technologies and products in the global wireless and mobile market.
Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services’ expertise is built on decades of experience providing services to address the complete lifecycle of products within the wireless industry through partnerships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), carriers, and other mobility industry leaders. The company has launched dedicated and multi-client logistics sites for some of the nation’s largest wireless enterprises, provides comprehensive distribution, mobility supply chain solutions, demand planning, and manages large-scale new product introductions. In addition to providing forward logistics services, Ingram Micro is leading the industry in developing innovative reverse logistics solutions for mobile device returns and repairs. Expertise in reverse logistics is increasingly critical as popular trade-in programs and device complexity drive up the demand for refurbishment and the average selling price for devices continues to increase.
“In today’s mobile landscape, OEMs continue to develop more advanced products, leading to higher consumer price points and longer device utilization. These factors increase OEM and carriers’ reliance on logistics providers to manage returns, repairs, and refurbishment, as well as data security and destruction,” said Alex Paskoff, senior vice president and managing director of U.S. mobility, Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services. “For more than a decade, many of our customers have relied on our ability to flex our operations to meet the ebbs and flows of their demand cycles, and we are committed to the continuous development of new logistics solutions to meet the next wave of mobile innovation. We are extremely proud to receive this industry recognition in the 2019 Mobile Breakthrough Awards.”
The mission of the annual Mobile Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success of leading enterprises across a range of mobile and wireless technology categories, including Cloud Computing, Mobile Management, Wireless and Broadband, Mobile Analytics, IoT and Smart City and many more. All nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the wireless industry.
“We have traditionally targeted software solution providers for this category, however, the importance of logistics providers to the mobility industry is increasing exponentially,” said James Johnson, managing director, Mobile Breakthrough. “Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services is leading the way in providing forward logistics for mobile phone companies, including software flashing, device configuration, kitting, and more, while also filling the significant need for reverse logistics. We extend our sincere congratulations to the entire Ingram Micro team on this well-deserved industry recognition.”
Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services’ operational footprint includes over 150 locations across the globe. Its expertise in mobility management solutions has accelerated rapidly since Ingram Micro’s acquisition of the Indiana-based company, Brightpoint Inc., in 2012. In addition to its mobility solutions, the company supports a variety of other industries with its comprehensive product lifecycle solutions, including forward logistics, reverse logistics and ITAD services.
