Built on Kivuto's Electronic License Management System (ELMS), the new service enables software resellers to provide academic institutions with an quick and effective way to get cloud-based Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus productivity suite to eligible students. With this service, any academic institution currently licensing Microsoft Office Professional Plus or Office 365 ProPlus for all of their faculty and staff through an eligible Microsoft Academic Volume License Agreement can provide students with no-cost licenses of Office 365 through an ELMS web store. "By working with Kivuto, the reseller and the institution avoid the challenging time and labor intensive integration process resulting from deploying and managing the Student Advantage program independently," said Brad Brohman, Vice-President, Sales. "Our reseller partners work with institutions to get them on board. We then work with schools to deploy a custom-branded web store as well as provide program and customer support. There is no on-going management requirement for the school and no additional effort needed by the reseller. The whole process can be accomplished in about two business days, at which point students will have instant access to all the benefits of Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus. We are excited about this approach and believe it's a win-win for all involved." The Microsoft Student Advantage program allows academic institutions that are offering Office to all of their faculty and staff to offer it to their students at no additional cost. Office 365 ProPlus provides students with an Office suite that they can use both offline on their PC, Mac or mobile device and in the cloud, and it includes everything they need to succeed at school, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook & Lync. This allows faculty and students to work together in real time on assignments, group projects, and research, and communicate seamlessly through e-mail, instant messaging, or online classrooms.
