A World Leader in Education Technology.Talk to a Specialist
As a Platinum-Level and NMSO partner with Lenovo, the world leader in EDU Technology, we understand the unique challenges various education systems face in transitioning learning models into the 21st century.
Together with Lenovo we are helping schools incorporate new ways of teaching, learning, and collaborating, all while managing cost, efficiency, and security with the most streamlined solutions possible.
Partnered with the Future in Mind
As a Platinum Partner with Lenovo, we can offer their education-built products and services designed to empower our future IT leaders. Whether its laptops, 2-in-1s or rugged tablets, Lenovo can handle the challenges of balancing competing priorities and the importance of getting the right technology that scales easily to different-sized classes and needs.
Partnered with Perseverance
The key to successfully investing in new learning products is resilience and reliability. Lenovo tests education devices to standards that exceed MIL-SPEC standards: stress-testing LCD screens with 50% more pressure applied in 5x more places, dropping devices from 2x the regular test height - even the hinges on Lenovo’s education devices have 20,000 more open/close cycles.
Partnered with Dedication
We’re in it for the long haul as are the education devices designed by Lenovo. The education technology and hardware Lenovo offers have proven their ability to resolve challenges faced across educational environments and enhance capabilities to power the creation of strong digital districts. We’re dedicated to the future and the IT leaders of it.
Northern Micro and Lenovo have been partnered since 2005 and have built a relationship founded on our mutual dedication to going beyond for our customers. Education devices are essential and providing the very best of the best in product is only second to providing an affordable and sustainable solution to our customers. This is our passion and our drive. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders and we take pride in being able to facilitate schools and educational entities in providing the very best in education devices.
Today, students and parents need to be able to access educational materials remotely and depend on innovative solutions to ensure their connections extend beyond the classroom. Our service capability and Lenovo’s experience of providing global tech solutions allow us to provide reassurance to parents, teachers, and students by providing end-to-end services and expert support.
Technology is no longer separate in the Education environment and Lenovo knows this and is prepared to service the need to seamlessly amalgamate these two worlds. Technology must be educationally driven, not just technology-driven and more than this it needs to remove barriers to education rather than create them; the devices need to work as hard as the students are and Lenovo makes that happen.
