Fraser Public Schools Partners With DynTek and Microsoft to Gain Online Collaboration Tools and Avoid $600,000 in Messaging Costs

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) -  DynTek, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DYNE), today announced the company is partnering with Fraser Public Schools to implement Microsoft Live@edu messaging and collaboration services to build innovation into the curriculum and avoid $600,000 in messaging costs.

Fraser Public Schools serves the needs of approximately 5,100 students from pre-kindergarten to grade 12 in Macomb County, Michigan. The school district wanted to offer online communication and collaboration tools to students and teachers to extend learning beyond the temporal and geographical boundaries of the traditional school day.

"We wanted teachers and students to be able to communicate and share documents using the latest messaging technologies both during and after school hours," says Kris Young, Director of Technology and Education Systems at Fraser Public Schools. "With our tight IT budget and our small IT department, it wasn't feasible to support a larger on-premises Microsoft Exchange environment, so we had to find an alternative."

Fraser Public Schools decided to look at hosted student/teacher collaboration solutions. For advice, Young turned to Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and National Systems Integrator DynTek Services. The company introduced Fraser Public Schools to Microsoft Live@edu, a no-cost suite of hosted communication and collaboration services for both teachers and students. The services include Microsoft Outlook Live web-based email with 10 gigabytes (GB) of storage, which is built on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010; Windows Live SkyDrive technology, which provides 25 GB of online storage per user; and Microsoft Office Web Apps that students can use to view, create, and edit documents using a familiar Microsoft Office interface.

By moving both students and staff to Live@edu, Fraser Public Schools can offer everyone the latest communication and collaboration technologies with highly secure data storage at Microsoft data centers. "With Live@edu, we can reaffirm our commitment to online security by using the bad word filter and anti-bullying features," said Dr. David Richards, Superintendent, Fraser Public Schools.

With Live@edu, the district gains scalable online communication and collaboration technologies at considerable savings over maintaining its own messaging solution for faculty, staff, and students. "Live@edu ensures we stay on the latest messaging software while saving us on-premises upgrade and storage costs of approximately [U.S.]$600,000," says Young. "That's money we can allocate directly to improving learning at Fraser Public Schools."
