Ident-A-Kid Becomes a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner

Ident-A-Kid earns distinction through commitment to academic customers.


St. Petersburg, FL — April, 30th, 2019 — Ident-A-Kid, today announced it has become a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner (AEP), demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft academic customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft AEP authorization, partners must complete a test to prove their level of academic licensing and market expertise.

The AEP program is designed to train participating resellers on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorize them to purchase and resell Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrate to potential customers that they are approved and knowledgeable academic partners.

Ident-A-Kid is the leading provider of visitor management systems to K12 schools nationwide. Their visitor management system was first developed in 2001 to address safety concerns for students and efficiency for administrators. With this system, schools can perform sexual offender checks before visitors sign-in, track student tardies and early releases, volunteer hours and generate reports of all traffic within schools. Ident-A-Kid supports over 20,000 customers and continues to innovate safety products for children.

“This Microsoft AEP authorization shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products,” said Rick Hagan, Ident-A-Kid CEO “We hope to accelerate our K12 school customers’ successes by serving as technology advisors for their IT requirements.”
“By becoming AEPs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector. “This authorization, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic customers the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.”

The Microsoft AEP Program is designed to authorize and equip organizations that deliver academic products and services through the Microsoft platform with the training, resources and support they need to provide their customers with superior experiences and outcomes.
