H-P’s partners in the contract…

The partner companies along with Hewlett-Packard in its successful bid for Idaho's $180 million, eight-year laptop computer contract for schools are: Education Networks of America, which will do the wireless networking and which also got the earlier contract to set up the Idaho Education Network; Xtreme Consulting Group, which will manage the PC imaging, putting the appropriate software on the products, making sure it's updated and operating the help desk, providing any assistance that's needed with the products; Black Box, which will “provide the break fix for these products,” according to H-P official Von Hansen (who added: 'They're right on site here, we use them for H-P. Very capable company.”) And the Idaho Digital Learning Academy will handle the professional development and training. “They're very capable folks right here in Idaho,” Hansen said, “and these are great partners, they're proven partners, ones that already work across the state.”
