Norrcom, which recently became an official reseller of Google Chromebooks, will be providing tech and customer support to schools in New Zealand once Chromebooks are available.
Paul Norris, Managing Director of Norrcom told Techday.com: “Google recognizes our strong reputation for honest dealing with schools contending with slashed budgets, financial pressures, an ever changing ICT roadmap, we dislike spending excesses when we know many workable, cost-effective options are available. This agreement merely strengthens our position.”
Adam Naor, Regional Manager of Chromebooks in Asia Pacific, said several national and local IT firms and service providers were reviewed in New Zealand, before signing on with Norrcom ICT.
No dates were provided as to when Chromebooks will be delivered to the New Zealand schools or which models were selected, although Norrcom is taking advanced orders.
