Creative Solutions Help Schools Deploy Chromebooks and Google Apps
BOSTON, Feb. 12, 2013
BOSTON, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Schools looking to engage students and
deploy one-to-one technology programs face many challenges, including limited
budgets, annual budget cycles, and the need to select technologies and
services that integrate with curriculum goals and objectives. To overcome
these challenges, schools are turning to creative funding solutions like those
offered by Cumulus Global through its strategic partnership with First
American Education Finance. By offering deferred initial payments, flexible
payment schedules, short term rentals, and lease rates as low as 0%, the newly
announced alliance offers schools more ways to fit Chromebooks, Google Apps
for Education deployments, and related services into their curriculum and
"Chromebooks make a great choice for student computing as they enable
web-based learning and enhance student-teacher interaction," notes Allen
Falcon, CEO of Cumulus Global."Chromebooks also work well for schools as they
cost half to a third of laptops and tablets, and as much as 80% less for
administration, management, and support."
Adding value beyond traditional financing services, First American Education
Finance provides a web-based asset management system that reduces a school's
cost of tracking and managing devices, device assignments, and refresh
cycles. Cumulus Global and First American Education Finance will also help
schools dispose of older technology, applying funds to new purchases and lease
"We are uniquely positioned to help schools acquire and deploy Chromebooks
while saving them time, effort, and money," added Falcon. "Schools can obtain
equipment now, and pay for it as their budget cycle allows."
Chad Wiedenhofer of First American Education Finance echoed Falcon's
statements. "As a finance company committed to the education community, we
are excited to make Chromebooks more easily available to Cumulus Global
customers. We are committed to developing innovative finance solutions that
help schools to acquire leading classroom technology."
