PC vendor, Acer, has landed a $70 million two year contract with the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
Under the terms of the deal, Acer will provide a range of desktop, notebook and tablet computers as well as support services to Victorian government schools. It also comes with optional three one-year contract extensions.
Earlier this year Acer scored a three year contract to supply up to 40,000 TravelMate P466 laptops to teachers throughout the state.
The PC vendor was also the first supplier named on the Department’s Curriculum Computer Hardware Panel.
“This win caps off a highly successful year for Acer in the education market – one that saw us overtake Apple to become the leading supplier to the K-12 sector in Australia by units sold,” Acer Oceanic sales director, Rod Bassi, said.“We look forward to continuing to work closely with the Department as we extend our already successful partnership through this new contract.”
