MCHENRY, IL and VANCOUVER, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Loss of expensive
technology tools can be a thing of the past for K-12 districts that use the
new bundle package presented by Follett and Absolute® Software Corporation

The new asset management solution allows K-12 districts to efficiently track,

Follett's Destiny® Asset Manager™ and Absolute Software's Absolute Manage® for
the first time in an exclusive bundle package, the two companies are offering
a powerful combination - Destiny® Asset Manager™ IT powered by Absolute - that
provides full accountability and cost-effective management over a large number
of devices across a district's digital learning environment.

Follett is the largest provider of educational materials and technology
solutions to pre K-12 libraries, classrooms, learning centers and school
districts in the United States. Absolute Software has been providing schools
and other educational organizations with solutions to enable mobile student
computing for two decades.

"We are very excited to be working with Absolute Software," said Bruce
Hamilton, program director at Follett. "Absolute Software has an excellent
reputation for device management and complements our Destiny Asset Manager
product. No other device management system handles the multitude of device
types and operating systems from a single console like Absolute Manage.
Coupled with the accountability and other management features that Destiny
Asset Manager provides, it is a perfect fit and will benefit any school."
