Take Advantage of The Quilt VMware Convenience Contract through KINBER

KINBER was pleased to offer a webinar for KINBER members to learn about the benefits of The Quilt VMware Convenience Contract. This webinar provided an overview of why institutions choose to utilize The Quilt VMware Convenience Contract including:

  • The Quilt contract is pre-negotiated, allowing customers the ability to purchase VMware products quickly and easily as all procurement rules and requirements have been met and done for them.
  • The Quilt contract has the best pricing structure for Education Customers outside of ELA’s, that require large upfront purchase commitments.
  • The Quilt VMware contract is a cooperative agreement and is therefore not protestable under the Competition in Contracting Act (CICA) allowing institutions to avoid the costly and time consuming RFP process.
  • Ease of procurement.
  • No upfront purchasing commitement.

In addition to learning about The Quilt VMware Convenience Contract benefits attendees saw a sneak preview of the new Enrollment Integrated-Cloud Based Virtual Learning Labs product, VMware Learning Platform, designed to improve student experience in higher education through curriculum driven cloud based computing resources (labs, desktops) dynamically provisioned.
