Arrow Expands ArrowSphere Cloud Solutions into North America

11:00 EDT Tuesday, June 04, 2013

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (Business Wire) -- Arrow Electronics Inc. (NYSE: ARW) today officially announced the North American launch of the ArrowSphere cloud service brokerage and aggregation platform that was established in 2012 and is currently available in five countries across Europe. In addition, Arrow unveiled a suite of services to assist the service provider community in building and scaling cloud practices.

The ArrowSphere cloud services platform centralizes the billing and provisioning of a rapidly growing array of leading-edge cloud services delivering storage and servers on demand, security-as-a-service, software-as-a-service and unified communications. Solution providers can sell the services via white-label webstores they create and manage through the platform, thereby maximizing their sales and marketing activities.

Tools, services and training designed to help solution providers build demand, enable onboarding and proficiency, enhance the brand footprint and grow revenue also are available through the ArrowSphere program. ArrowSphere business services leverage industry best practices to speed market entry by taking much of the guesswork from building a cloud business.

“In less than 12 months, we have taken our ArrowSphere cloud services model from launch to revenue,” said Laurent Sadoun, president of the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and global services for Arrow's enterprise computing solutions segment. “We are pleased to offer a richer and more robust cloud platform to solution providers in North America.”

“Given the successful launch of ArrowSphere in Europe, we are confident the platform will offer significant benefits to solution providers in the U.S. and Canada seeking to sell cloud services,” said Jim Livingston, vice president of services for Arrow's enterprise computing solutions business in North America. “ArrowSphere enhances our current cloud services offerings by making the selling motion for cloud solutions simple and the ramp-up to the cloud expeditious.”
