Overview

 

We understand that the technology and business demands vary significantly within the different levels of education. To provide specialist support, we have dedicated teams in place supporting schools, colleges and universities. Our teams are always on hand to offer consultation and advice on any IT requirements you have, from simple requests to complicated IT projects.

We offer a wide portfolio of IT solutions and as we aren’t aligned to one vendor, we assess the best options to meet your requirements.
