TEMPE, Ariz., July 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insight Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq:NSIT), a leading worldwide technology provider of hardware, software and service solutions, today announced its U.S. operating division's participation in the Microsoft Devices Program, empowering the organization to resell Surface Pro and Surface RT to commercial customers. The goal of the Microsoft Devices Program is to serve customers by activating Microsoft's channel of partners to resell its devices to businesses of all sizes, from the classroom to the boardroom.

"There's a tremendous market opportunity for tablets in today's business environment," said Insight President and CEO Ken Lamneck. "In particular we are already seeing a big need in the education sector and for businesses with a choose your own device ( CYOD) strategy. Adding the Microsoft Surface line into our portfolio of products, gives our clients a great opportunity to provide their employees or students with portable, touch tablet style devices that also provide the full power of the Microsoft business productivity solutions. We're excited to participate in the Microsoft Devices Program because it further demonstrates our commitment to serving the needs of clients relying on Microsoft devices and services."

"Bringing Surface Pro and Surface RT to the U.S. commercial channel greatly extends the reach of our devices-and-services strategy, delivering our family of devices enabled by cloud services to more organizations than ever before," said Jenni Flinders, Vice President U.S. Partner Group for Microsoft Corp. "We look forward to working closely with our Microsoft Devices Program partners to better serve their customers and create compelling solutions together."

The Microsoft Partner Network is designed to equip organizations that deliver products and services through the Microsoft platform with the training, resources and support they need to provide their customers superior experience and outcomes. Launching first in the U.S., Microsoft Devices Program creates a two-tier distribution model with authorized partners to enable commercial customers to purchase Surface Pro and Surface RT.
