Windstream Enterprise Now an Approved Vendor for USETPA Members

October 30, 2019

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 30, 2019--

Windstream Enterprise (WE), a managed communications services provider, announced that it has been awarded a US Educational Technology Purchasing Alliance (USETPA) contract for internet, broadband and telecommunications services.

“The opportunity to serve USETPA’s members recognizes our partnerships and years of experience working with various public sector and non-profit entities,” said Desi Stoops, vice president of state government and transport sales at Windstream Enterprise. “Our nationwide local and long-haul fiber network and our proprietary cloud core architecture enable us to provide a robust portfolio of solutions tailored to meet this sector’s diverse needs.”

USETPA leverages the purchasing power of schools, libraries and public entities nationwide to secure the lowest prices available for its members using a “reverse auction” process. This process allows users to request proposals from USETPA-approved vendors, negotiate and select the proposal that offers the best value without the constraints of the formal RFP process.

In addition to OfficeSuite UC® and UCaaS/CCaaS offerings, Windstream Enterprise offers its SD-WAN Concierge™, Cloud Connect and industry-leading WiFi services. It also offers a range of complementary network and communications solutions including Managed Network Security, Wavelength Services with Optical Encryption, Switched Ethernet and Fixed Wireless.
