Discounted Minitab Software Available to Academics Worldwide

March 25, 2005

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Minitab recently extended the opportunity to rent or purchase its software online at tremendous savings to academic customers worldwide through e-academy.com, a leading provider of brand name software discounted for education.

Thanks to the advanced technology it recently implemented, e-academy.com now offers students and instructors from every country convenient, secure access to Minitab® 14 in multiple languages, Minitab French 13, and Minitab Quality Companion® for as low as US$29.99 per semester – a savings of more than 95% off the regular retail price. Free, fully functional thirty-day demos, and 12-month and perpetual-use versions of Minitab software also are available.

Both companies are pleased that the new offerings allow them to provide exceptional value to an even broader educational community.

"Making our software accessible to students is one of our greatest priorities and we are thrilled that e-academy's technological advances are helping us accomplish that," said Christine Bayly, Minitab's Academic Sales Leader. "And with thousands of companies in more than 80 countries using Minitab, e-academy's global distribution offers students not only affordable software but also a chance to gain experience with a tool used by employers everywhere."

"This initiative validates e-academy's mission to provide affordable software to the international education market, particularly since the rental version of Minitab is e-academy's most popular seller,” added e-academy president, Ram Raju. “Students previously ineligible for the discounted software, such as individuals from the United Kingdom, now qualify, allowing us to provide a truly global software solution.”
