SURFspot.nl is an initiative by the not-for-profit organisations SURFmarket
and APS IT-diensten.
SURFmarket is the ICT-marketplace for higher education and research. It
facilitates the use of ICT. SURFmarket and APS IT-diensten offer software,
content, ICT services and hardware at unique prices and conditions. SURFmarket
provides this service to higher education and scientific research. APS IT-
diensten is aimed at primary education.
SURFmarket and APS IT-diensten allow students and staff in higher education
and pupils, their parents and staff in primary education to purchase ICT
products for home use at extremely advantageous prices through SURFspot.nl. This initiative makes it possible for SURFmarket and APS IT-diensten to directly
serve the end users. Moreover, SURFspot.nl takes over the distribution of
software and other resources from the educational institutions.
SURFspot.nl has been developed in cooperation with universities, universities of
applied sciences and primary schools. The range of products that is on offer "on
the shelves" depends on the (software) licensing agreements that the institution
has subscribed to. For most products the institutions have acquired a licence
for use by students, pupils and staff, including use at home. This is one of the
reasons why the products can be offered at such affordable prices.
It is important for ICT providers that students and pupils legally use the most
up-to-date software during their education. For them SURFspot.nl is the
perfectly suited channel to offer their software at a fraction of the standard
price, due to the authenticated access to SURFspot.nl as well as the fact that a
software package can be bought only once.

scientific research and for pupils, their parents and staff in primary
