San Jose, Ca. (May 10, 2019) – Serviceaide®, Inc., a global provider of IT service management solutions, today announced a distribution agreement with Ingram Micro, Inc. to offer Luma™, Serviceaide’s AI-powered virtual agent, to resellers through the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.

“As a virtual support agent that is intuitive for end users and learns new skills over time, Luma represents a significant shift for IT service and support organizations.
