Microsoft Authorised Education Partner
In September 2015 Adept IT became a Microsoft Authorised Education Partner (AEP), demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft academic customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft AEP authorization, partners must complete a test to prove their level of academic licensing and market expertise. This must be renewed annually to demonstrate current knowledge.
What is the Authorised Education Partner Program?
The AEP program is designed to train participating resellers on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorise them to purchase and resell Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrate to potential customers that they are approved and knowledgeable academic partners.
“This Microsoft Authorised Education Partner authorisation demonstrates our commitment in the educational IT sector and our expert knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products,” said Andrew Egan, Managing Director. “We serve as trusted advisors and forecast technical requirements, partnering with our academic clients to develop long term strategic plans for their IT environments.”
“By becoming AEPs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector. “This authorization, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic customers the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.”
The Microsoft Authorised Education Partner Program is designed to authorise and equip organisations that deliver academic products and services through the Microsoft platform with the training, resources and support they need to provide their customers with superior experiences and outcomes.
