Microsoft New Zealand signs new licensing model with the Ministry of Education

Schools can immediately take advantage of the Enrolment for Education Solutions (EES) agreement between Microsoft New Zealand and the Ministry of Education.

Simple and easy to understand, the newly signed variation to the Microsoft Schools Agreement has removed traditional barriers to software licensing and is designed to provide schools with significant value for money – reducing the total cost of ownership so more resources can be focused into the classroom.

In addition to the current core Microsoft products, schools are now able to access:

  • Unlimited Microsoft core servers (Windows, Exchange, Sharepoint and Lync)
  • Coverage for Apple Mac computers (including the use of Office For Mac and Windows OS Upgrades on school owned or leased Apple Mac computers),
  • The Microsoft Desktop Optimisation Pack, and
  • The ability for students to access school Microsoft servers from their own personal devices.

All schools need to re-enroll in the agreement in order to take advantage of the new additions.  Please contact Datacom for more information.

More details on the varied Microsoft Schools Agreement are here.
