CDI and Numonics Form Partnership

CDI, North America's largest supplier of recertified, brand name computers to the educational market, and Numonics, the internationally recognized pioneer of the world's first pen-centric interactive whiteboard have formed a strategic alliance and preferred partnership to bring Interactive Learning to classrooms across the nation.
As a result of the partnership, CDI’s recertified computers and Numonics’ Interactive Whiteboard – Digital Presentation Appliance DPA will be offered together giving classrooms specialized access to the best technology:

CDI’s most cost effective recertified technology and computers

Numonics' high tech DPA Interactive Whiteboards

“More than ever, districts understand the need to implement a cost effective, holistic strategy to tackle the technology challenges they face. We provided 250,000 units to schools in North America last year and many of our customers asked us for help in getting cost effective interactive whiteboards and projectors into their classrooms,” said Saar Pikar, General Manager, CDI. “We looked at a number of interactive whiteboards and realized that while many solutions existed in the market few of them covered all the needs of our educators and came in at a reasonable price point. Numonics boards are sold at the best price point in the business, are sturdy, made in the US, and come with the industry’s best warranty and no questions asked customer support. All of these things convinced me that Numonics is the company we wanted to partner with.”

“This partnership enhances both CDI and Numonics’ offerings by allowing us to leverage our products to provide more cost-effective and flexible solutions for our customers,” said Mr. Alfred N. Basilicato, Chairman & CEO Numonics. “It was a simple choice to partner with CDI on this initiative, given the company’s collaboration leadership, excellent reputation and their desire to increase their value to their customers.”

CDI offers districts a solution to increase the availability of computers for students while dramatically reducing technology spending through their cost effective recertified technology solutions. CDI provides schools with current, reliable technology that is far less expensive than new equipment. This approach has revolutionized technology purchases and allowed many districts to dramatically improve their computer to student ratios.

Numonics offers students, educators, trainers and presenters around the world patented award winning Interactive Whiteboard technology that allows them to share their ideas easily without spending hours learning the product. They pioneered instructor-led web based training over five years ago and still offer it at no charge.
