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 The overhaul included revamping the out-of-date, expensive and inflexible analogue phone system.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.

“When we wanted to make changes to the old phone system, we used to have to wait for our supplier to respond and incur expenses in the process.”

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Out-of-date printers were also replaced with multi-function printers that have transformed the way staff and students print – and saved £18,000 in just the first year.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 ITEC Engineers have been expert, very professional and highly responsive.”
