Simplifying School Communications
Find out how this leading academy school is enjoying state-of-the-art enhanced unified communications and saving money thanks to ITEC’s Technology Managed Service.
Ringwood School Background
Ringwood School in Hampshire is a large secondary academy school. The school became a teaching academy in 2011 and offers students an outstanding education in a welcoming, caring setting.
THE CHALLENGE: Behind the times
As a teaching academy, Ringwood School is leading the way when it comes to providing outstanding secondary education – but their phone and printing systems had fallen behind the times. ITEC stepped in to provide a complete digital solution. The overhaul included revamping the out-of-date, expensive and inflexible analogue phone system. The school’s unreliable fleet of 80 printers – the cause of much frustration with staff - were also replaced with a cost-effective and more efficient solution.
THE SOLUTION: Simplified systems that save money
ITEC Engineers assessed the school’s needs and came up with a holistic approach that centred around a complete digital overhaul of the existing systems.
The transformation included a new phone system that was significantly cheaper to maintain and easy to control – although full training was also provided. It was promptly installed in under three days and thoroughly tested in good time for the start of the new school year.
Out-of-date printers were also replaced with multi-function printers that have transformed the way staff and students print – and saved £18,000 in just the first year.
THE RESULTS: Embracing digital in education
Introducing ITEC’s Technology Managed Service has brought the school up to speed with the latest tech at no extra cost compared to maintaining the old systems – with the potential to save significantly on maintenance in the future. The digitised new system runs like clockwork but ITEC remains on hand with support and advice – all part and parcel of its Technology Managed Service.
