Adept Scientific has arranged an agreement between Eduserv Chest, an organisation delivering preferential pricing for software and information licences on behalf of universities and colleges, and Maplesoft, to make its range of high-performance maths software tools available on a site-wide basis to higher education sites, further education sites, research councils and selected associated sites in the UK and Ireland.
Maple 12, Maplesoft's flagship software, is a tool used in maths or technical disciplines. It provides teachers with an interactive, visual way to deliver lessons and explain complex theories in maths, science or engineering courses.
Chest Agreements are in demand because they save money and provide advantageous terms and conditions to suit academic requirements. They enable site-wide software installation and ensure the most current version via free upgrades and maintenance.
'The Maple Chest licence has been a long time coming,' said Elaine Bragg, the main driving force behind its creation and commercial director of Adept Scientific. 'The agreement couldn't have come at a better time thanks to the recent launch of brand-new Maple 12 and Maple T.A. 4.0. The addition of the very latest maths software to campus resources can only help to attract more students come enrolment time.'
The Maplesoft product range is supplied and supported by Adept Scientific in the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia and the Nordic countries.
