Commenting on the launch of Cover lus, Mr.Felix Wong, President at Ingram Micro, said, “Having strongly established our presence in distribution, logistics and service management; offering Value-added-Services, which is still at a very nascent stage, is the next logical step for us. As mobility becomes mainstream, we have identified a growing trend for increasing gadget protection. We seek to address the same with the Cover Plus, which comes bundled with free insurance. Most of the mobile-insurance market is still unorganized with regional or city specific players. With Ingram Micro entering this arena, the industry will not only revitalize, but we are confident that that Ingram Micro Cover Plus will prove to be a win-win proposition for both users and smartphone manufacturers.”
