Alain Monie, CEO of Ingram, said his sales teams worldwide managed to grow. The mobility extra margin gave a strong boost after its acquisition. It bought Aptec in 2012.
Ingram made a distribution deal with an unnamed mobility OEM, while it did OK business with its cloud offerings after its acquisition of Softcom.
