Whole School Support (Maintained Schools only)

Our Whole School Support Package combined the support of the school’s Curriculum devices, including ICT suites and the school’s Admin devices (i.e., School office devices). This means that your School’s entire IT infrastructure is managed by the same provider and where 95% of issues are resolved remotely, removing the inconvenience and frustration of waiting until the next scheduled visit by a technician. Any issues that cannot be resolved remotely will result in a same day visit by one of the technical support team.

Schools’ software systems and applications i.e. curriculum software, cashless catering, sign-in and visitor management and broadband providers supported, at no extra charge.
