If you have, or are considering purchasing Microsoft Surface devices, be sure to have a deployment and adoption plan in place. A study of 500 primary and secondary school educators, revealed that 40% of teachers avoid existing technology in their classroom due to insufficient training1. While 30% of the same group acknowledged that when implemented correctly, technology could improve student’s results1.
With up to $20,000 funding2 available to assist your school’s Surface deployment, the solution seems obvious, ensure your teachers are prepared to fully leverage your Microsoft Surface investment with Data#3’s Deploy Assist program.

The range of services offered under the Deploy Assist program are in addition to the value-added services we offer all our Microsoft Surface clients such as:
Extended Hardware Service extends the standard device warranty to cover you for a full three or four years, depending on the coverage purchased.
In the event of a manufacturer defect, we’ll ship a replacement device in advance of the damaged hardware being returned. Replacement devices are shipped within 3-5 business days via prepaid shipping.
Coverage for accidental damage can be added during the purchase process, through choosing either the Student Warranty or the Complete for Business scheme.
Surface Student Warranty is the smart way to maximise uptime in your classroom. If a device stops functioning – whether it’s a cracked screen, a spill, or power surge damage – it’s covered.
With basic and premium options, schools can make two or three claims over the three year warranty period. The $99 excess per claim keeps upfront costs lower for everyone, and rewards those who don’t incur damage.
Surface Hot Swap – a device exchange service facilitated by your Surface Education Reseller to provide students with an immediate replacement device when needed.
This eliminates the double handling created with loan devices and keeps your students up and running. Accidental Damage Protection (ADP) coverage is required.
Surface Pen batteries and Surface Pen Tips – we provide access to bulk packs of AAAA (Quad 4) batteries and Surface Pen Tips.
