IDT become Microsoft Authorised Education Partner


IDT is delighted to announce its partner status with Microsoft, through its Authorised Education Partner (AEP) programme.

The AEP program is designed to train resellers like IDT, on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorising them to purchase and resell Microsoft licenses to schools and academies and demonstrate to potential customers that they are approved and knowledgeable academic partners.

IDT has undertaken and successfully passed Microsoft’s competency test in academic licensing and market expertise. Our Technical team have completed the necessary assessment to become fully qualified in the AEP programme. As an AEP, IDT has access to key information about new products and events as well as new tools and resources

Luke Draper, Director for IDT comments,

“We’re delighted to be awarded this partner status from Microsoft in recognition of our commitment to IT in the education sector. Understanding licensing can be tricky, with many organisation’s failing short or not getting the best out of the licensing that they have, or even knowing what is available.  At IDT we will work closely with our customers, helping them to understand and recognise the benefits that Microsoft licensing can provide to their institution. With our Microsoft AEP status, it shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products”

Already supplying large number of schools and academies across the UK, IDT provides an extensive range of products and services, including, telecommunications, IT equipment, hosted services and IT support. IDT is committed to providing the highest quality service to its customers, whilst also meeting a school’s evolving needs.

Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector comments on making the grade as a partner,

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

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.”

IDT has a highly knowledgeable and experienced team of IT specialists, who work closely with schools and education establishments to supply the latest equipment and bespoke solutions, working in-line their budgets and timescales.
