Here’s a summary of what each company supports:

  • CDW Amplified for Education offers support to schools by way of consultation, performing tasks, and creating custom solutions for schools that have support contracts with us. If you want to know more about our support services or to request a quote, you can email your Google Customer Success Specialist.
  • The Support option page within the Admin console is not an indication of the status of the Support Contract with CDW Amplified for Education. The page within the Admin console indicates whether the Reseller relationship is active and may indicate that you purchased services from Google through us. In these cases, we can ESCALATE tickets you raise with Google when the response time is longer than expected. Having CDW Amplified for Education as your reseller places us as the default contact for questions regarding Billing for subscriptions you purchased through us. At the bottom of that pop-out, there is a Google support link for non-billing and other questions.
