Palm Beach State College faced declining budgets and the need to support a growing student body with the right technologies to foster learning. The college added the Microsoft Enterprise Client Access License Suite agreement to its existing Microsoft Campus Agreement to conserve costs while getting access to a range of technology solutions, including those that enhance IT management, security, and user productivity. As a result, it has eliminated many third-party products, gained IT staff efficiencies, improved communications capabilities, and streamlined operations, saving U.S. $500,000 annually. These improvements make it easier for faculty and staff to provide high-quality education to the colleges more than 50,000 students, and using progressive technologies better prepares the college and its students for the future.
