May 13, 2014
ADDISON, IL—ITsavvy, one of the fastest growing companies of its type in the U.S., just announced that it has joined an elite group of technology solution providers who are approved MHEC VMware partners. The Midwestern Higher Education Compact allows educational and government organizations in its 41 member states to broaden their pool of resources and expertise in order to gain advantage in the marketplace.
ITsavvy Client Executive Derek Jatko said, “This is a really big honor for us since MHEC has a national contract for VMware–the number one virtualization software. Most education and government clients are looking to virtualize their servers, so this contract will give our existing clients the best price and will bring in new business immediately.”
The contract, which is through Arrow Electronics, is in effect until 2019 and has pre-negotiated rates that eliminate the necessity of getting 3 quotes. Other benefits include: elimination of competitive procurement; pre-reviewed terms and conditions; and the allowance of ELAs (enterprise license agreements) and deal registration. Those eligible to purchase under the compact include:
• Higher education institutions (public and not-for–profit)
• K-12 districts and schools
• Other local governments
• State government
ITsavvy has already been approved and is currently listed as an official MHEC VMware partner. Mike Theriault, President and CEO of ITsavvy, said, “We are more than ready, willing, and able to serve education and government-related organizations in MHEC member states. Our long-term relationship with VMware makes us preeminently qualified to recommend, engineer, sell, and install just about everything that VMware has to offer.”
