Ingram Micro has created a new business group - called eSolutions - dedicated to helping its business partners handle electronic commerce, and the company reported it will handle distribution for Keyspan USB products.
eSolutions is designed to provide the latest electronic business applications for e-commerce. The group is co-chaired by Guy Abramo, Ingram's senior VP of marketing worldwide, and Richard Kish, senior VP and chief information officer. The two executives, who created barnesandnoble.com, are working with 190 people from Ingram Micro's sales, marketing and IT departments.
"By creating the eSolutions Group," Abramo said, "we are able to treat electronic commerce as a business unit and centralize accountability, allowing us to focus on the needs of customers who want to do business electronically."
This month Ingram also began distribution of Keyspan's serial and Universal Serial Bus products for Windows and Macintosh computers. These products include: a USB PDA adapter for Palm organizers at a $39 suggested retail price; a USB upgrade card at $49; and an SX PRO serial adapter card for Macintosh systems at a suggested $179.
