Chicago, Ill. – April 2, 2015 – The SMB Help Desk, Inc. today announced it has become a Microsoft Authorized Education Reseller (AER), demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft academic customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft AER authorization, partners must complete a test to prove their level of academic licensing and market expertise.

The AER program is designed to train participating resellers on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorize them to purchase and resell Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrate to potential customers that they are approved and knowledgeable academic partners.

The SMB Help Desk’s cloud first approach allows the customer to implement enterprise level solutions without a large capital cost. The SMB Help Desk offers a variety of services from email migrations, SharePoint customization, hosted VoIP, managed services and Saleforce.com consulting allowing SMB’s to have a true partner for sound advice to help them meet their business goals.

“This Microsoft AER authorization shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products,” said Marvin Korves, President. “We hope to accelerate our academic customers’ successes by serving as technology advisors for their IT requirements.”

“By becoming AERs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector. “This authorization, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic customers the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.”
