SheerID and Individual Software Announce 60% Discount for Military


Eugene, Ore. and Pleasanton, Calif. – May 23, 2013 – Just in time for Memorial Day, Individual Software, the leading provider of computer training software, is launching a new 60% military discount, powered by SheerID’s automatic military verification platform. The exclusive discount, which is only available to military personnel who have been verified by SheerID, is available every day on all Individual Software products, including ResumeMaker, Disney: Mickey’s Typing Adventure, Professor Teaches Windows 8, and many other titles, to active duty military, their dependents, veterans, and retired military personnel.
“Supporting our troops and their families is very important to all of us at Individual Software”, states Jo-L Hendrickson, President & CEO at Individual Software. “Using SheerID for verification allows us to offer our deepest discount to the military community because we know nobody else can take advantage of this exclusive offer.”

Recent reports from the Department of Defense show that the unemployment rate among military spouses is 26%, more than three times the national average, and the unemployment rate among veterans is around 13%. 85% of military spouses have reported that they want or need to work. By making software like ResumeMaker and Professor Teaches Office 2013 more affordable and accessible to the military community, Individual Software and SheerID hope to assist military spouses, transitioning military, and veterans who are looking to get back into the workforce.

“It is SheerID’s goal to allow companies to offer military discounts significant enough to make a difference in people’s lives so we are excited to partner with a company like Individual Software to offer exclusive discounts to the military community,” comments Jake Weatherly, CEO of SheerID. “The fact that they are offering a deep, 60% military discount shows their commitment to support our troops.”
