Software2 proud to partner with education technology experts ScholarBuys

Software2 announce key partnership with Academic Technology Experts ScholarBuys to bring AppsAnywhere to universities across the United States.

Software2 has partnered with ScholarBuys, the go-to education technology experts. ScholarBuys is dedicated to providing schools with the best technology for their budget, including software, hardware and digital learning solutions, working with companies such as Microsoft, VMware, Lenovo, and Adobe.

Having worked exclusively in the education technology sector for more than 10 years, ScholarBuys are experienced in providing suitable solutions to meet the needs of academic IT departments across the country.

When it comes to delivering software to students and staff, universities face unique challenges. With tens of thousands of students, thousands of devices and hundreds of apps, how does the IT department enable students to access software on any device at any time, both on and off campus?

With Software2’s AppsAnywhere, universities can improve the student experience by deploying all their software on-demand, at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. From a familiar and customizable app store, AppsAnywhere gives students access to 100% of Windows apps on their own devices while giving IT the ability to centrally manage software licenses and updates.

ScholarBuys’ focus on improving the student experience and their track record in using technology to solve real-world problems makes them the ideal partner to bring AppsAnywhere to universities across the USA.

Tony Austwick, Software2 CEO comments: “Having successfully brought AppsAnywhere to the education markets across the UK and Europe, and to notable US institutions including University of Michigan, we understand the problems faced by IT departments; how do we deploy all our apps to students anywhere and on any device?"

By partnering with academic technology experts ScholarBuys, we hope to use AppsAnywhere to improve the student experience at many more universities and colleges across the USA.

Bob Smith, President and Co-Founder of ScholarBuys adds: “Today’s students are constantly connected. They want access to school software on any device, any time of day, from wherever they are – the coffee shop, dorm room, home, and everywhere in between."

Software2’s AppsAnywhere, designed specifically for Higher Education, enables institutions to provide their campus with 24/7 on-demand access to the applications students need for their studies and coursework. ScholarBuys is very excited to partner with Software2!
