NEW YORK – Mar. 5, 2013 – GLOBO (LSE-AIM: GBO), the international leader and technology innovator delivering Enterprise Mobility Management and Telecom software products and solutions, today announced it has signed a distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc (NYSE: IM), the world's largest technology distributor and a global leader in IT supply-chain, mobile device lifecycle services and logistics solutions. Under the terms of the agreement, the Ingram Micro Mobility division will provide GLOBO's revolutionary Enterprise Mobility solutions for the Enterprise and Small and Medium Business (SMB) market to authorized resellers in the United States and Canada.

"The addition of GLOBO's GO!Enterprise platform to our lineup allows Ingram Micro resellers to provide an even wider portfolio of solutions to serve the growing number of customers looking to mobilize their business operations," said Bashar Nejdawi, president Ingram Micro Mobility, North America. "We're committed to offering products to our reseller customers that provide them with ever-expanding opportunities for success in a competitive marketplace and GLOBO's portfolio of mobile solutions is an excellent addition to our mobile offering."

The comprehensive solution includes hosted Microsoft Exchange accounts, cloud hosting and file storage, GO!Enterprise office productivity and collaboration apps, an integrated development studio for creating customized apps, and an Enterprise Mobility Management console to manage and protect corporate assets.

Now SMBs do not have to settle for a scaled-down enterprise solution and can find Enterprise Mobility products anywhere, even on the shelves of major retailers.

"Enterprise mobility is a strategic initiative for organizations of all sizes and our product strategy is designed to deliver to the widest range of customers exactly what they require. Enterprise Mobility in a Box® came of out this business mindset. The distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Mobility complements exactly what we envisaged; the widespread cross-channel availability of a solution crafted for SMBs made available through the leading IT and mobile distributor in the world and addressing the most mature markets of USA and Canada in one move," said Costis Papadimitrakopoulos, GLOBO's CEO.
