SHSU Forms New Partnership for Campus Workstations
Sam Houston State University has reached an agreement with Hewlett Packard (HP) Computers to be the main supplier of workstations for campus. The partnership will allow people on campus to have more powerful computers at a lower cost to the university while, at the same time, providing the campus with increased services.
This change means that Dell will no longer be providing workstations to SHSU. Dell has been the sole provider of SHSU workstations for the past ten years. While they will no longer be providing the campus with workstations, IT@Sam will continue to maintain a positive working relationship with Dell as they continue to provide the campus its servers and various other equipment.
Moving forward, Dell will continue maintaining any computer currently under warranty. As the warranties expire on remaining Dell computers, replacements will be ordered from HP.
This agreement also brings with it a partnership with a local HUB partner, NWN Corporation. NWN handles training and technical support for HP and will provide this service for IT@Sam.
NWN is a Texas based, woman owned, company that is able to deliver responsive service and technical support at no additional cost to SHSU.
