Hewlett-Packard Offers Schools IT Freedom And Teacher Resources
HP Schools Programme Includes Dedicated Web Site And Packages
AUCKLAND, 16 July 2001 -- Hewlett-Packard New Zealand (HP NZ) Limited today announced the launch of its HP Schools Programme offering schools IT packages and teacher resources.
Available through a dedicated web site (www.hp.co.nz/schools), the programme offers New Zealand schools online HP packages, promotions and information. The easy to navigate site will be updated quarterly to coincide with the school term.
Offers available to order on the site will be available only through specially appointed HP education resellers throughout the country. Reseller locations are included on the web site.
Justin Tye, Hewlett-Packard Commercial Channels Manager, says the HP Schools Programme offers schools flexibility and freedom of choice in selecting their IT products and packages.
“We have made it easy for schools to buy top quality HP products at special prices without being required to join or become a member of a club. That means they can select what they want, when they want, whether it is new products or upgrades.”
“Our research showed that schools wanted more flexibility in choosing IT products, as well as individual packages especially for them, “ Justin Tye says.
The HP Schools Programme web site also includes resource material for teachers. “We found that this was something that teachers really value and we are dedicated to developing an excellent technical resource site.”
Schools are being given the chance to win a special launch package of an HP external CD-writer 8230e, an HP Scanjet 5300c and an HP LaserJet 1220 all-in-one when they purchase any HP product during Term III. As well, those who join the HP Schools Programme mailing list go in the draw to win an HP Officejet K80 valued at $1,150.
The web site includes information on the competitions and how to enter as well as general material on HP products.
