Ingram gets Web licensing boost

Its taken 32% of licensing business

Online licensing now accounts for 32 per cent of Ingram Micro's licensing business after just three months of running the scheme.

Vendors covered in the LicenseLink service, which launched in October, include Microsoft, Adobe, Symantec, Lotus and Powerquest.

Peter Nevison, Ingram category manager, told Computer Reseller News that there had been a lot of new customers buying online because it was "considerably cheaper than buying boxed product,"

LicenseLink launched later than rival C2000's InTouch scheme, which has been going for more than a year. ®
