TORONTO, ON, — September 5, 2013. Compugen Inc. today announced its participation in the Microsoft Devices Program, empowering the organization to resell Surface Pro and Surface RT to commercial customers. The goal of the Microsoft Devices Program is to serve customers by activating Microsoft’s channel of partners to resell its devices to businesses of all sizes, from the classroom to the boardroom.
“Business customers are increasingly seeking devices that span work and home, can be easily managed and configured, and run standard software to get the job done, whether it’s working at home, on the shop or hospital floor, at the library or coffee shop, reading an e-book, watching a video or gaming,” said Michael Charter, VP, Software, Compugen Inc. “We’re excited to participate in the Microsoft Devices Program for these reasons, because it addresses the needs of customers relying on Microsoft software, devices and services, and because we are equipped to handle so much more than just sales: easy procurement, complete imaging, set-up and configuration, and a host of post-delivery services such as asset tracking and multilingual Help Desk Support.”
“Bringing Surface Pro and Surface RT to the Canadian commercial channel greatly extends the reach of our devices-and-services strategy, delivering our family of devices enabled by cloud services to more organizations than ever before,” said Jason Brommet, Director, Partner Business and Development, Microsoft Canada. “We look forward to working closely with our Microsoft Devices Program partners to better serve their customers and create compelling solutions together.” Launching first in the U.S., and now activated in a total of 18 markets, Microsoft Devices Program creates a two-tier distribution model with authorized partners to enable commercial customers to purchase Surface Pro and Surface RT.
Compugen has announced the success of several of its community outreach initiatives as it reaffirms its commitment to corporate citizenship through ongoing charitable work. Historically, the national IT solutions provider has encouraged individual branches across Canada to support their local foundation of choice through donations and employee volunteerism. Every year, different Compugen offices organize fundraising events such as silent auctions and raffles with staff and partners to benefit their chosen cause. Read More …
