Blue Line Becomes a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner

Blue Line Technologies earns distinction through commitment to academic customers

Charlotte, NC – June 13, 2018, Blue Line Technologies, today announced it has become a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner (AEP), demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft academic customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft AEP authorization, partners must complete a test to prove their level of academic licensing and market expertise.

The AEP 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.

Blue Line provides IT support and services for small to medium businesses throughout the Carolinas and beyond. Blue Line’s leadership team is backed by over 15 technology professionals with years of experience, security, and trust, in providing IT services across a wide span of industries.

“We understand the IT support required for a school is different than for a business or home. With this Microsoft AEP authorization, we are showing our commitment to providing superior services and solutions for our clients in the academic IT marketplace, by serving as technology advisors with a higher understanding of Microsoft and its academic products,” said Jeff Sagraves, Blue Line President and CEO.

“By becoming AEPs, 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.”

The Microsoft AEP Program is designed to authorize and equip organizations that deliver academic products and services through the Microsoft platform with the training, resources, and support they need to provide their customers with superior experiences and outcomes.
