At its ONE event in Las Vegas this week, tech distributor Ingram Micro said that its data capture/point-of-sale (POS) business is differentiating and expanding its channel partner value-add on five technology pillars: payments, mobility, networking, omni-channel retailing and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions.
The company also said that it has named Jeff Yelton as executive director and general manager of its North America data capture/POS business to support the effort. Yelton has more than 30 years of channel and industry-specific experience. He was previously president of ScanSource POS and Barcode.
“Ingram Micro is spearheading several strategic technology, solutions and partner enablement initiatives within the data capture/POS space that will deliver greater competitive advantage and invigorate our channel partners to provide additional insight and value to the small and midsize businesses they serve,” said Jay Miley, vice president and general manager, Ingram Micro Advanced Technology Division. “Under Yelton’s leadership we will become a more strategic business partner and change agent to channel partners who want to deliver a complete solution that stems from the core to edge of the network.”
