CITE is pleased to provide the CITE and Microsoft Strategic Alliance (CAMSA) program supported by Softchoice. This is a California statewide purchasing contract with Microsoft for the Educational Enrollment Solution (EES) program. This contract can serve as a master purchasing vehicle for K-12 educational institutions in the state of California. Offering major discounts and simplifying the license purchase process, this consortium includes over 70% of LEAs in California who would not qualify for this type of pricing on their own. Contact Microsoft or Softchoice today to learn more.

The benefits of this program include:

-Simplified Decision Making
-Leverage Collective Purchasing Power
-Save Time Looking for the Best Price
-Reduce Overhead and Recordkeeping



It is our intent to provide California K-12 school districts with the aggressive pricing, service and support for EES Microsoft licensing. Softchoice provides reseller service for these accounts.
Softchoice will provide:

  • Low pricing for Microsoft products
  • Expertise in regards to products choices and options
  • Quick response and turn around with quotes, forms and paperwork
