NCS Support Services Ltd in Rossendale, Lancashire, has announced it has become a Microsoft Authorised Education Partner (AEP), demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft academic customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment.
In order to earn a Microsoft AEP authorisation, partners must first complete a test to prove their level of academic licensing and market expertise. The AEP program is designed to train the 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.
Carl Nelson, MD of NCS Support Services Ltd comments, “Our recent Microsoft AEP authorisation adds to our long list of Microsoft accreditations and other partner endorsements which we are immensely proud of.
“The AEP authorisation shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our enhanced knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products.”
“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 authorisation, 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.”
