Kivuto announces that it has entered into a strategic partnership with NERCOMP, a nonprofit 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.”

Kivuto, a provider of academic digital resources, announces its partnership with The Douglas Stewart Company, North America’s distributor of educational software and technology products. Together, they will provide a tailored solution for the management and distribution of the Adobe Student License Pack for Higher Education.

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 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 for schools where software is required by students, faculty, and staff.

With the release of Adobe’s new VIP Student License Pack for Higher Education, Kivuto and Douglas Stewart will work together to provide a tailored solution for customers and their reseller partners that automates the entire digital supply, while eliminating the complexities tied to licensing individual end users. Douglas Stewart’s global reach and extensive education portfolio of products and services offers Kivuto the opportunity to extend its reach to a vast array of additional educational markets.

Jeff Blacklock, president at Kivuto, said: “Getting solutions into the hands of key individuals within educational institutions is challenging. Kivuto recognizes Douglas Stewart’s strength in the market and the reputation they have built over the past 65 years as an education reseller. We are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with them, adding extended value in the academic IT sector. With this partnership, Kivuto and Douglas Stewart will work together to solve some of the most challenging problems educational IT departments are faced with today.”

Charles Hulan, president at Douglas Stewart, said: “By partnering with Kivuto, we are now able to offer a solution that enables IT within educational institutions to safely, securely, and confidently verify and distribute software and resources to authorized students, faculty, and staff. Kivuto Cloud enables IT departments to have full control over a centralized model that can provide the much-needed adoption and insights that have been missing for so long. Kivuto Cloud will be a great addition to the solutions we offer to our clients.”
