Contract enables members to purchase technological tools and services at a reduced cost
TETERBORO, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#cloud—Computer Design & Integration LLC (“CDI” or “the Company”) announced today that its cloud and managed services offering has been added to the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) Technology for Education and Career (TEC) Cooperative Pricing System. Offered through NJSBA’s contract with Carahsoft Technology Corp., New Jersey K-12 institutions will now have access to CDI’s cloud and managed services to proactively monitor, maintain and manage their day-to-day IT infrastructure needs — on-premises or in the cloud.
NJSBA’s TEC Cooperative Pricing System is a membership service, supported by the New Jersey Department of Education, that enables school districts and member charter schools to secure technology at a significantly reduced cost, to access free and low-cost resources, and to forego administrative red tape associated with individual purchasing.
“There’s no denying that the demands of managing technology can overwhelm understaffed IT departments,” said Chris Clark, Director of Public Sector, CDI. “The educational sector should only have to worry about enabling our youth through a high-quality, personalized curriculum – which now more than ever, is extremely challenging. Together with NJSBA and Carahsoft, CDI Managed Services provides a proven, cost-effective solution that increases operational efficiencies, enables innovation, and provides staff and students with a secure, redundant and powerfully backed infrastructure, allowing IT departments to focus on what really matters — the students.”
“We are pleased to offer CDI’s cloud and managed services to our local boards of education as part of the NJSBA TEC Cooperative Pricing System,” said Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, NJSBA executive director. “With CDI’s service, local school boards can ensure that their IT infrastructure is safe, secure and efficient.”
Carahsoft and CDI have partnered to make CDI’s solutions available to school districts and member charter schools under the NJSBA TEC CPS and through Carahsoft’s reseller partners.
“We are excited to partner with NJSBA and our resellers to add CDI’s innovative cloud and managed services offerings to our portfolio of solutions tailored to meet the needs of educators,” said Tim Boltz, Director of Educational Technology at Carahsoft. “As school districts throughout New Jersey and the U.S. work to balance the requirements of remote and in-person learning, CDI will enable these institutions to add resiliency and security to their IT infrastructure to ensure minimal interruptions to classes and maximum educational opportunities for students.”
CDI’s public sector practice builds on more than two decades of consulting experience, deep technology skills, and an award-winning cloud and managed services portfolio, which includes data center design, hybrid cloud infrastructure, DevOps, intelligent operations, digital workflow, digital workspace and security technologies.
