Other Services

Broadband

Is your broadband service slow and do you need help upgrading it? Are you concerned you’re not getting good VFM with your broadband provider.

Schools IT work with a number of broadband providers e.g. EMPSN, RM, Wave 9 and Kcom to provide you with a number of connectivity options along with a firm recommendation. Moving to a new broadband provider is a huge undertaking for a school but is something we have a lot of experience in. The same also applies to Web filtering and firewall security.

IT Health check and security audit

Is your IT equipment in need of updating or do you have concerns about IT security in relation to GDPR

We provide a comprehensive written IT health check which we typically present to the Head teacher, Schools Business Manager, IT Coordinator and also Governors. The report contains a lot of technical information but the format has been designed to be school friendly. The main purpose of the report is to allow you to budget for future IT hardware and software purchases and provide you with business case information.

Office 365 setup and support

Have you moved to Office 365 but have yet to exploit its full potential or are you planning a move to this platform?

We moved all our schools over to Office 365 almost as soon as the platform was released following some thorough testing. We saw its huge potential early on to reduce support overheads for the team and provide supported schools with increased mailbox storage and a number of collaboration tools such Skype, OneNote etc.
