Acer has won a contract to supply the Jordanian Ministry of Education with around 12,000 PCs — the third major deal the vendor has done with the government body in as many years. This latest agreement puts the number of PCs the Taiwanese computer maker has sold the ministry at over 30,000, and comes a week after Acer announced a contract to supply Emirates Airlines with at least 21,000 desktops over the next three years. The vendor’s local partner in Jordan, CEB, put the value of the total contract at around US$9million. CEB will install the computers in schools across the country during the next three months – part of the ministry’s initiative to provide all schools in Jordan with computer labs. Each school will have a lab of around 20 networked PCs, a server and connection to the internet. Acer Middle East sales and marketing manager Philip Ashkar described the deal a ‘strategic’ win for the company. “Every account is important for us, but this one, winning it three years running, is a real success,” Ashkar said.
