Challenge

AirDev partnered with UK-based consultancy Consenna to help HP reimagine and relaunch its flagship HP for Education program, enabling thousands of schools and colleges to procure modern IT solutions with credit from trading in their aging equipment. HP leadership sought to expand the program by creating a digital marketplace for IT solution providers. Key requirements included: • Intuitive school onboarding & equipment trade-in flow • Administrative portal for staff to review & approve claims • Authorized reseller portal where staff can track and support customers • Digital storefront where schools can spend earned wallet funds on solutions

Solution

Results

The revamped HP for Education platform launched on time and on budget, and in its first month supported hundreds of school registrations. A process originally scheduled for 6-12 months was cut to 3, including multiple iterations.
