SANTA ANA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Expanding its point of sale solutions portfolio, the Data Capture/POS (Point of Sale) business unit of Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) today announced a new distribution relationship with Equinox Payments, LLC.
Under the terms of the new U.S. agreement, Ingram Micro will be named a master distributor of Equinox's wide-array of payment terminals including the popular L5000 series. The Equinox L5000, paired with Equinox's proprietary Remote Key Injection system, will enable Ingram Micro U.S. to download security keys to payment terminals on behalf of Ingram Micro's channel partners. This allows Ingram Micro U.S. to offer its customers a way to avoid the cost and time of taking terminals offline and shipping them to secure facilities for key injections.
"With integrated NFC/contactless technology, EMV chip reading, signature capture, PIN entry and remote key injection capabilities -- all on a large, brilliant-color display -- the L5000 series is fast becoming a channel favorite and offers a great service for any business that accepts PINpad and credit card payments," says Lloyd Baylard, vice president, Equinox Payments. "The market expertise, dedicated support and expanded partner reach offered through the Ingram Micro Data Capture/POS business unit will serve as a growth catalyst for Equinox Payments -- helping us to achieve our business goals, and bring increased value and greater service levels to our mutual channel partners."
"Equinox Payments is one of the top POS payment terminal manufacturers in the country, and we're pleased to be named distributor of choice for L5000 series of payment terminals as part of our growing solutions portfolio to resellers and MSPs throughout the U.S.," says Justin Scopaz, executive director and general manager of the Ingram Micro Data Capture/POS and Physical Security business units, North America.
"The retail market is a strong play for resellers who offer technology solutions that streamline efficiency, add convenience and help companies of all sizes adhere to business regulations and industry compliance requirements," explains Carla Cicero, executive director, U.S. sales and vendor management, Ingram Micro Data Capture/POS business unit. "Payment terminals in particular are becoming increasingly popular and present a good 'in' for channel partners to engage existing customers and prospects on adopting or refreshing their IT environment to include customer service innovations such as the Equinox L5000."
Equinox Payment terminals are now available to Ingram Micro channel partners throughout the U.S. Dedicated sales, marketing and technical resources are also readily available to mutual Equinox and Ingram Micro channel partners via the distributor's Data Capture/POS business unit.
Equinox Payment resellers who are interested in becoming an Ingram Micro channel partner can contact Ingram Micro's new accounts team at (800) 456-8000, ext. 41, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Eastern or visit www.ingrammicro.com/dcpos.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
