SYNNEX Corp. has announced that it is the first distributor to offer Google Play for Education on tablets to authorized solution providers.
The addition to SYNNEX’ Google education solutions portfolio, which also includes the Google Chrome Management Console, allows resellers in the education market to provision and manage a wider variety of platforms and devices.
Especially beneficial for K-3 environments that use a high level of touch devices in the classroom, Google Play for Education gives resellers the ability to sell management of both tablets and content, including apps, videos and books, in the same console. Similar to the Google Chrome environment, a large number of devices can be set up and deployed in a matter of minutes or hours. The Google Nexus 7, ASUS Transformer Pad, HP Slate8 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Tab for Education are all available through SYNNEX.
“We continue to invest in bringing more opportunities for our customers in the education market to make the 1:1 goal a reality in school systems across the country,” said Eddie Franklin, vice president of sales for the public sector and vertical markets at SYNNEX. “Adding tablets with Google Play for Education to our K-12 portfolio and providing the right accessories and additional software make it easier than ever for our resellers to continue to win more business from the school districts they serve.”
