The Tunisian Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ministry of Technology (MoT) have chosen Acer Computer to supply them with high-end desktops and notebooks.
In the third deal of its kind, Acer will deliver 1,800 high-end commercial desktops to the Tunisian MoE, having already supplied more than 4,750 desktops to the Ministry of Education in the last two years.
"This deal is not just a significant milestone for Acer. It is a reflection of the strength and presence of Acer as a brand, especially with educational institutions across the region," said Mohammed Hilili, country sales manager at Acer North & West Africa.
"Acer is fulfilling existing commitment to supply Ministries of Education in Oman, Ethiopia, Morocco and Jordan with high-end Acer computers," added Hilili.
As part of the deal, the IT vendor will also provide after-sales support through its partner Tunisie Micro Informatique.
"We have had a close association with Acer Computers on strategic enterprise projects, and this new deal solidifies and demonstrates the corporate and business offering we can provide to valued clients," said Mondher BenAyed, CEO Tunisie Micro Informatique.
The IT sector in Africa is growing rapidly and Tunisia in particular is one of the stronger markets.
"Acer has a strong presence in the education sector across the region," Hilili added. "We have dedicated focus groups working to develop and promote the growth of the country's education sector."For all the latest tech news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
