Pleasant Hill, CA — September 3, 2014 — Cantrell’s Computer Sales & Service – locally owned, value-added computer retail store with an outstanding computer service department, 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.

Cantrell’s Computer Sales & Service has partnered with Microsoft since it opened its doors in 1998. The company has been a Microsoft OEM system builder since the beginning and most recently has become a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher.

 “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 Wade Cantrell – Owner, Cantrell’s Computer Sales & Service. “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.”

The Microsoft AER 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.

Cantrell’s Computer Sales & Service offers new and refurbished computers as well as repairs and upgrades in our shop or on-site at your business or home office.  We are all about computers!
