Just like in the Philippines, global tech titan Acer continues to earn accolades, this time via two major honors given recently in North America.
Tech & Learning Magazine awarded the TravelMate B117 with Best of Show award at International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2016. The TravelMate B117 was selected by an anonymous panel of educator-judges who scoured the ISTE exhibit hall and rated their impressions on quality, effectiveness, ease-of-use, creative use of technology and impact in the classroom against all other products displayed at ISTE.
This award at ISTE 2016 possesses a major impact on Acer, especially that the Philippines is starting its own K-12 program. It is a fitting accolade in Acer’s efforts to harness the power of technology in education, particularly its vision of the ‘classroom of the future,’” explains Manuel Wong, Managing Director for Acer Philippines.
The ISTE is a leading K-12 education tradeshow in the United States that draws 16,000 educators and school technology experts. It was founded by a group of educators in Eugene, Oregon who maintained their belief in the potential of educational technology.
Meanwhile, Microsoft named Acer the Microsoft North America Partner of the Year at the annual Microsoft 2016 Partner of the Year Awards. The awards recognize top Microsoft partners that demonstrated excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
The award finalists and winners were selected from more than 2,500 nominees from 119 different countries. Microsoft highlighted its unprecedented partnership with Acer to promote Cloudbooks, as well as sales and marketing initiatives that achieved 825% year-on-year U.S. retail growth in Office pre-installations. It also honored Acer for helping it achieve a 576% year-on-year increase in the Shape the Future program for education.
Finally, Acer was recognized as the number one multinational account for a Windows consumer tablet in the United States with its Acer Aspire One 10.
