NeedThese earns distinction through commitment to academic customers.

We are so excited to share that for the 10th year in a row, we have become a Microsoft Education Reseller!

To earn a Microsoft AER authorization, partners must complete a test to prove their level of academic licensing and market expertise.

The AER program is designed to train participating resellers on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorize them to purchase and resell Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrate to potential customers that they are approved and knowledgeable academic partners.

NeedThese works to provide the very best technology tools which are beneficial to student’s classrooms.  “This Microsoft AER authorization shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products,” said Tony Riggs, Director of K-12 Sales. “We will continue accelerating our academic customers’ successes by serving as technology advisors for their IT requirements.”
