Tuesday, September 17, 2019 - 9:00 am

OTTAWA, ON – September 17, 2019 – Kivuto, a leading provider of academic digital resources, is pleased to announce that they have entered into a strategic partnership with NERCOMP, a non-profit consortium focused on technology acquisitions by higher education IT professionals. Through this partnership, Kivuto will have exposure to NERCOMP’s higher educational institution members across the northeastern United States, who will have access to purchasing Kivuto Cloud through NERCOMP.

Cloud license management and provisioning is a challenge for academic IT departments as it is difficult to actively manage those who have access, the length of time and amount of access, and the rules around software license use. Kivuto Cloud addresses these challenges, empowering educational institutions to effortlessly deliver both product key license verification and distribution, and named user license distribution. Kivuto Cloud allows organizations to manage, distribute, and recover costs on any digital resource in a single cloud-based platform.

Jeff Blacklock, President at Kivuto, said:

“NERCOMP is one of the largest education consortiums focused on technology acquisitions in the US, so we are excited to be partnering with them. Through this partnership, Kivuto will have access to NERCOMP’s 300 educational institution members and will have ongoing exposure to them though various activities and events. This is an important strategic partnership for Kivuto.”

Kevin Brassard, Chair of NERCOMP, said:

“We are so pleased to have Kivuto on board as a NERCOMP partner, and that our members will have access to Kivuto Cloud. Because we take the time to vet all of our partners, our members can be assured that we see Kivuto is a trusted vendor, and that Kivuto Cloud is a key technology that they should evaluate for use within their organizations.”
