Local reseller Perfekt Com and its channel partner Acer Computer Australia have won a three-year contract worth around $3 million to act as sole desktop PC supplier for Holmesglen TAFE, Victoria.

The win sees Perfekt Com and Acer providing the Institute with its ultra small form factor (USFF) range of PCs, this includes the Veriton 1000.

Frank Ugolini, national education sales manager, Acer Computer Australia said
Acer was able to reduce both Holmesglen and Acer’s operating costs.

“This included enabling Holmesglen TAFE to provide warranty services to their own user base and sharing Acer’s e-Learning facilities with Holmesglen Institute’s IT staff,” said Ugolini.

Holmesglen was also interested in the ‘green’ benefits of the product range. These include additional energy saving costs and environmental benefits of using the products in their schools, said Rosemary Burns, IT Manager, Holmesglen TAFE.

“Thinking green is high on our list of priorities. The smaller footprint also enables us to rethink room design and build greater flexibility into that design. This coupled with the ability to work with Acer as a partner and not just a reseller gives us great opportunities,” said Burns.

“Holmesglen Institute, Victoria is another prestigious win to add to Acer’s already impressive list of education customers in Australia,”
said Ugolini.
