INTELLIGENT ELECTRONICS TO DISTRIBUTE IBM RISC SYSTEM/6000

 INTELLIGENT ELECTRONICS TO DISTRIBUTE IBM RISC SYSTEM/6000
 EXTON, Pa., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Electronics, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: INEL) announced today it has been awarded IBM authorization to market the RISC System/6000 family of products as a Managing Industry Remarketer (MIR).
 The addition of the IBM RISC System/6000 product line makes Intelligent Electronics the only national aggregator which provides its resellers with solutions from Sun MicroSystems, Hewlett-Packard Company, and IBM Corporation, the three premier suppliers of UNIX, RISC-based workstations and client-server solutions.
 Jim Ciccarelli, president of the company's Reseller Network Division, said, "Growing our UNIX Workstation business is a top priority for us. With this IBM RISC System/6000 program, we're adding an important incremental piece to our advanced technologies' strategy." Intelligent plans to roll out the RISC System/6000 program to its resellers this fall.
 As an MIR, Intelligent will recruit Industry Remarketer Affiliates (IRAs) and provide a full range of services, including authorization assistance, reseller training and technical support. The company plans to recruit IRAs from within its current network of more than 1600 systems resellers and affiliates, and from currently non-affiliated value-added resellers and systems integrators.
 According to Ciccarelli, Intelligent will assist interested resellers in applying for IRA status and fulfilling IRA authorization requirements. IRAs who are granted IBM Business Partner status will be authorized to use the IBM Business Partner logo, have access to IBM marketing programs, and purchase the full line of RISC System/6000 products from Intelligent Electronics.
 The IBM RISC System/6000 line represents IBM's UNIX RISC-based mid- range systems. These products include desktop workstations and servers that run AIX, which is IBM's client-server operating system. High- powered workstations such as the IBM RISC System/6000 family provide tremendous power for individual applications. They also attach to host computers to share data and computing power, act as hosts themselves to support hundreds of workers, or share distributed computing power in networks with thousands of nodes.
 Intelligent Electronics, a leading source of office productivity solutions, operates three divisions: Reseller Network, Consumer Retail, and Distribution Services. The Reseller Network, composed of more than 1600 computer systems resellers and affiliates, provides sophisticated technology solutions to businesses in 700 business communities in all 50 states of the nation.
