Arkadelphia Public Schools Ditches E-Trust for Cost Saving AVG Anti-Virus
Arkansas school system saves money for when it switches five schools to AVG Anti-Virus
Newton, NC – September 2008 - Joey Andrews is the sole Computer Technician at Arkadelphia Public Schools in Arkadelphia, Arkansas He has managed the district’s five schools and over 700 workstations for the past three years.
"We were using E-Trust to maintain security for our network," Andrews said. "But, like many school systems, we work with a very tight budget for anti-virus software. E-Trust was just draining too much from our budget and we needed to switch to something more cost effective. More importantly, the new solution had to still maintain a tight security parameter for our network."
That’s when Andrews decided to dump E-Trust and move to AVG Anti-Virus which offers serious discounts for schools, districts, and learning institutions.
"I don’t know exactly how much we saved by purchasing AVG for Education, but I do know that it was considerably cheaper than our licenses from E-Trust," Andrews remembered.
Considerable Discount, Exceptional Service

"When we switched over to AVG Anti-Virus, the support team was right there to help us set it up," Andrews said. "They also helped us when we upgraded to version 9.0."
"We have a large network with five schools and over 700 workstations so it was nice that Walling Data helped me to set it up and also helped when we upgraded," Andrews said. "All I had to do was sit back and watch them remotely set up AVG Anti-Virus on our network, it was extremely easy and pain-free."
