SANTA ANA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) today announced an expansion of its K-12 solutions portfolio to include Pearson's digital learning solutions. As a result of this new alliance between the leading technology distributor and the world's leading learning company, Ingram Micro channel partners can now create customized offerings to meet the personalized learning needs of schools and districts.

"Supporting new ways to teach and learn is essential to the education process, and digital curriculum is at the core of a complete solution for schools," said Michael Humke, executive director of vertical markets, healthcare and public sector unit, Ingram Micro. "By adding Pearson curricula into our portfolio, we are empowering Ingram Micro's channel partners with the capabilities they need to open up new opportunities and deliver holistic solutions that enable the schools to transition to a 21st century learning environment."

Pearson creates innovative learning solutions powered by technology that enable educators to leverage the power of data to improve teaching and learning, and align the way they teach with how students communicate, work, socialize and live. Ingram Micro channel partner and successful technology integrator Camera Corner Connecting Point in Green Bay, Wis., has built a thriving IT services practice around the education vertical, and sees tremendous value in the new relationship between the two industry-leading companies.

"More and more curriculum is going online and, as a true integrator, it's critical that we align our technical services and expertise with the goals of the instructional coordinator to deliver a complete and customizable solution," says Dave Pisani, senior vice president, Strategy and Operations, Camera Corner Connecting Point. "Incorporating Pearson into Ingram Micro's education portfolio will further simplify the sales process and make it even easier for us to scale, deploy and support the growing demand for e-learning and e-text solutions."

"Today's digital education programs are improving learning outcomes for students," said Larry Singer, managing director for Pearson. "Our collaboration with Ingram Micro will allow its channel partners to easily and effectively provide their school customers with best-in-class education technologies and services that support teachers in their efforts to accelerate and personalize the learning experience for students."

Ingram Micro and its Public Sector Elite partner community work with hundreds of specialized channel partners who have relationships and provide products and services to the K-12 market. The distributor's education-focused products, solutions and services portfolio continues to grow year after year. Throughout 2014, Ingram Micro will continue to bring to market new resources to accelerate its success in education, such as a K-12 playbook for channel partners and field-based training and education courses.

"The addition of Pearson to our solutions portfolio gives our resellers a competitive advantage when it comes to helping schools and districts transition from textbook- and teacher-centered instruction to digital content and student-centered learning solutions," said Humke.
