Crucial Technology, a factory-direct seller of memory upgrade modules, announced
an agreement last week with Leapfrog Smart Products Inc. that puts Crucial's
memory products on the General Services Administration schedule via Leapfrog's
Leapfrog, a smart card software developer, will act as the principal supplier
to government agencies, and Crucial will supply products under a pass-through
agreement, said Dale Grogan, president of Maitland, Fla.-based Leapfrog.
Crucial Technology, based in Meridian, Idaho, is a division of Micron Semiconductor
Products Inc., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Micron Technology Inc.
"This shows our commitment to federal government sales," said David McCarthy,
Crucial.com's government sales manager. "It allows agencies to call in and
get the best density and solution for them. Before GSA, most of our federal
orders were for $2,500 or less, so this means much larger orders for us
and better service for the government."
