Safeware’s Institutional Program Allows Colleges to Save Money and Supports Campus Communities

New data published by Safeware illustrates an innovative, comprehensive protection solution available at universities nationwide

Dublin, Ohio, May 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today’s society is one deeply rooted in technology, and universities are no exception. Students rely on their laptops and tablets to complete school work, and professors must be constantly connected to answer questions and teach classes. Safeware, a leading provider of product protection and extended warranty solutions, has partnered with over eight hundred campus computer stores since 2012 to provide students and faculty with comprehensive protection for their technology.

With over four-thousand colleges and universities in the United States, many institutions provide their faculty and staff with mission-critical technology in order to create a collaborative relationship between the University and its students. Fortunately, an increasing number of school administrators are considering the impact that damage to or failure of those devices can have on overall productivity when deploying new technology on campus. In these events, the average repair on an institution-owned device can cost over three hundred and fifty dollars. Plus, over sixty-five percent of all damage to these units are caused by accidental drops, falls and liquid spills.

“By offering this new device protection solution for departments on college campuses, we are now expanding Safeware’s impact beyond just the student body,” says Safeware’s Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Schutjer. “Parents and students already trust Safeware to protect them against damage and failure, and now more faculty members are beginning to see the tremendous benefit of this service, as well.”

As Safeware began to receive requests from schools to create bulk ordering options for institution-owned devices, the initial idea for the Institutional Program was formed. This program offers the ability for schools to budget extended warranty coverage as a capital expense, receive discounts based on quantity, obtain repair service directly on campus, and supplement any manufacturer’s warranties that come with their devices. Safeware proudly offers plans that are fully customizable; no matter the size of the college or the type of technology they’re looking to protect, Safeware has the ability to create a protection solution unique to their campus.
