Microsoft Authorised Education Partner

Pythagoras Becomes a Microsoft Authorised Education Partner

Pythagoras today announced it has become a Microsoft Authorized 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.

The AEP 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.

“This Microsoft AEP authorization shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and the value of our solutions and services within the higher education market place. We look forward to building on the 30% of universities across the UK we are already proud to work alongside.”

Lee Wise, Head of Marketing at Pythagoras.

“By becoming AEPs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market. 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.”

Anthony Salcito, vice president of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector.

The Microsoft AEP Program is designed to authorize and equip organizations 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.

Pythagoras has worked with over 30% of UK universities to redefine their approach to student recruitment, engagement and retention using the Microsoft Cloud.
