Absolute Software Announces Deal With Queensland

Absolute®Software CorporationAbsolute Software has announced that the company has completed a Computrace® software license sale covering more than 60,000 student laptops with the Queensland Government’s Department of Education and Training (DET) in Australia.

This transaction expands Absolute’s existing relationship with Queensland DET and will be completed in calendar Q4. Under terms of the agreement, Absolute will sell its Computrace Data Protection product, with the sale amortized to revenue over a period of three to four years.  Armed with Computrace, the Queensland DET has embraced best practices for data and device protection, and has taken steps to respond to and remediate loss and theft of their valuable student computing assets.

“By having access to laptops, our students are better equipped to access important online resources, resulting in improved collaboration and greater opportunity for personalised learning,” stated DET’s Information and Technologies Assistant Director-General David O’Hagan. “Absolute’s Computrace technology provides schools and students with the security of knowing their machine can be tracked and traced should it ever be lost or stolen.”

“We are pleased to strengthen our existing relationship with the Queensland DET by providing them with solutions to securely manage their laptops,” said John Livingston, CEO of Absolute Software. “We believe our products are a must-have for any organization to maximize the value from their computing assets and to effectively and efficiently embrace mobility. Our expanded partnership with the Queensland DET validates our investment in the Asia-Pacific region and is a good indicator of the international market opportunity for Absolute Software.”
