ComputerCorp has been awarded a tender with the Queensland Department of Education and Training.
Under the deal, the integrator will supply 9000 HP notebooks for distribution to the state’s TAFE lecturers and state school teachers.
It is the third phase of the notebook rollout, with the first two phases consisting of Lenovo/ IBM notebooks provided through integrator CoreTech, which was subsequently acquired by ComputerCorp.
In addition, up to 15,000 notebooks could be provided through the tender with extensions.
The deal was announced as the news emerged that ComputerCorp CEO, Robin Rindel, will bow out following the ASX-listed integrator’s (ASX:CZP) acquisitions of Synergy Plus and S Central. The combined company will also be rebranded Synergy Plus, subject to shareholder approval. The deal, which is due to be completed by July 1, will see Melbourne-based S Central managing director, Peter Mavridis, takeover as the combined group’s CEO and join the board.
