Software4students Bridges the Digital Divide

Software4Students helps bridge the digital divide this back to school season by offering parents, students and teachers up to 90% off top software

The Software4Students program offers students, teachers and parents up to 90% off Microsoft, Adobe and other leading branded software this back to school season.

At a time when the economic pressure on families is at its highest and university fees are surging in the UK, Software4Students offers students of all ages, teachers and parents the opportunity to make huge savings of up to 90% in software costs.

Sarah Mc Garr, Communications Executive, tells us how it all started and why they are able to offer the software so cheap; “We started as a pilot program in 2005 helping disadvantaged schools to minimise the digital divide and boost social mobility, providing students with low cost opportunities to enhance their digital skillsets”.

“Due to the success of the program we extended it to all students and their families in the UK and Ireland, to help students prepare for their future and compete in the demanding technology–led world. Our strong affiliations with Microsoft, other leading manufacturers and the education community enable us to offer these products at hugely discounted prices”.

The Software4Students portfolio of products includes software from popular manufacturers like Microsoft (Office 2010 and Windows 7), Adobe (Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Creative Suite CS5.5), Kaspersky antivirus software and more. The offering has proved to be hugely successful in the past few years, being endorsed by many positive mentions on different media like The Guardian and a massive following of over thirteen thousand people on Facebook.

In addition to their existing offers, Software4Students has recently launched bundled packages of software that lead to even bigger savings when buying software together. And as if all of this was not enough good news for the education community, Software4Students are also giving customers the chance to win one of the hottest tablets in the market each week for the month of September when they purchase any Adobe product through their site.
