  • About Us

    "Michelle stepped in and provided me with plans, pricing and purchase information geared towards my environment that made sense and saved my institution money and time."

    Tom Scheer, Monroe County Community College
  • About Us

    "I was struggling with understanding how the different software manufacturers handle their licensing, maintenance and renewals of their products until I started working with Jason Watson and his team at JourneyEd.com. Jason is extremely knowledgeable and courteous, he is more than willing to go that extra step to help me. He has called me to walk me through some of the new options available through Adobe and Microsoft cloud computing."

    Lorraine M Wentzel, IT Procurement & Requisition Specialist

    "Working with Jason and his team has already resulted in far greater efficiency in configuring new computers for our faculty and staff, especially with Adobe products, which we have only recently begun to purchase through JourneyEd. "

  • About Us

    "Before I started working with Amrita Sethi and her team at Journeyed.com, I was struggling with getting quotes in a timely fashion, getting help untangling the mess of MS licensing, Adobe licensing, etc. Her ability to keep her pulse on the general IT landscape and bounce ideas off is very helpful. I have, also, found myself in the bad habit of not monitoring our license renewals and she is always on top of the renewal dates."

    Bob Williamson, Network Administrator
  • About Us

    "As the director of group business initiatives, Jason has helped me become more engaged with this program and more comfortable with the details of what he offers to our members. Jason keeps me informed about each member’s involvement and how I can partner with him and JourneyEd to meet both the individual needs of our members and the needs of our group as a whole. Jason is prompt to respond to questions."

    Anita Girelli, Director of Business Operations

    "This past year I have spent a considerable amount of time researching Microsoft’s Volume License Program. It is interesting to note that I have heard many different scenarios about their offerings. Your Account Manager (Odessa) had the ability to provide me with a clear explanation of the program, along with the best option for us. Please commend her for the work she does."

    Kathleen McCann, Technology Coordinator
  • About Us

    "I have used JourneyEd.com as a vendor for Tarrant County College for over 14 years. Over time I came to realize they were more than just an online retail store for boxed software. Michelle Griffin’s knowledge of their products has helped many times over the years to find solutions for our educational needs. She and her team of experts have found many solutions at the best prices. Their search for solutions at times goes above and beyond what you would normally expect."
