The Challenge

Overhauling print and connectivity

The existing print set up at Boundary Oak was expensive to run, unreliable and a drain on resources, as staff were frequently required to spend time fixing issues. It also lacked the capability to offer much-needed visibility across the school’s printing output. The school needed a smarter print solution — and more modern machines — in order to reduce print costs, improve security and gain much-needed insights into print volumes. Boundary Oak School has a stunning Grade II listed main building which was built in the 13th Century. While the old building of the school is part of its charm, the old existing network infrastructure was not. The existing system was an ineffective solution that frequently dropped out and caused problems. When the school built a state-of-the-art design and tech centre, it was the perfect opportunity to overhaul connectivity.

"Our other support company would constantly let us down but ITEC were always quick to respond and help."

— Thomas Kates, Commercial and IT Manager

The Solution

A smarter approach

As part of a Managed Print solution 18 modern, all-in-one Xerox printers — or MFDs — were supplied and installed. ITEC Engineers setup Xerox Workplace Suite to enable cost control, content security and mobility workflows. The ITEC team used their specialist experience at helping schools with connectivity to create a bespoke HP Aruba network.

The new design and technology centre was linked across the site using Fibre and Aruba network switches and new wireless access points were established for optimum performance.

"ITEC is an adaptable company that personalises support and service, putting your business needs first rather than recommending something you do not need."

— Thomas Kates, Commercial and IT Manager

The Results

Technology for enhanced learning

Thanks to ITEC’s Technology Managed Services, the staff and students at Boundary Oak school now benefit from a Managed Print solution that is more modern, more cost-effective and much easier to use. They can also enjoy modern, reliable connectivity that enhances learning — rather than frequently dropping out and causing frustration.
