Flypaper Studio, a creator of Flash and motion graphics software, has signed a US distribution agreement with Ingram Micro, a global IT distributor. Ingram Micro will market and sell the Flypaper content creation platform to IT resellers throughout the US. This adds to Flypapers distribution partnerships signed last year.
The new agreement broadens Ingram Micro’s digital signage solutions portfolio and allows channel partners to purchase a complete digital signage platform all from one resource. The Flypaper Flash content creation platform solves the content problem for digital signage networks by letting users create, edit, and share high quality Flash content on the fly, no special design skills necessary, at a very affordable price.
“Content creation is a critical and differentiating service within digital solutions and represents a lucrative revenue stream for IT channel partners.
