Acadia University Case Study: Giving Students an Advantage

Acadia University Case Study: Giving Students an Advantage


Acadia University wanted to enable students to purchase their own laptops but needed to narrow their selection to models that would meet exacting requirements and student approval. The university invited vendors to showcase their laptops to students and empowered students to choose the vendor offerings they liked best. Dell™ Latitude™ and Dell XPS™ laptops were among several models the students selected. Dell worked with Acadia to get a direct-buy program up and running by fall semester.

Benefits achieved:

  • Launched direct-buy program for multiple vendor offerings in just 2 months with Dell’s assistance
  • Able to provide 2-hour turnaround for repair and parts with Dell Warranty Parts Direct
  • And more
