How we have helped
IT AND OFFICE 365 SUPPORT FOR LONDON SCHOOL
Collingham is an independent, co-educational GCSE and Sixth Form college, which was founded in 1975.
We provide IT and Office 365 support for this London School.
Working with companies across London (providing services including IT, server, network and Microsoft Office 365 support) and having strong experience in working with other education providers, we were only too happy to help meet their needs.
Akita successfully migrated Collingham College from an under-performing IT support company over to our support model. Our proactive approach to maintenance and preventative measures helped to meet the needs of this busy college.
Since our involvement, we have also been able to assist with other IT network improvements. This includes implementing an Office 365 email migration, segregating the LAN into Student and Staff subnets, and moving Collingham’s accounts package to Akita’s hosted environment.
As a result, system performance and reliability have been dramatically improved with all users noticing a significant uplift in speed. The migration has also eradicated the occurrence of system-wide downtime and has seen far greater reliability all around.
Akita is well placed to support educational institutions. Our IT solutions are set up to deal with a large number of users, with restrictions available to separate access permissions between staff and pupils. Several of Akita’s engineers have previously specialised in providing IT support for the education sector. This includes up to 5 years of experience directly supporting schools and their specialist software and solutions.
All of our onsite support staff are also fully DBS certified to comply with common school safeguarding policies. So if you’re looking for a support partner for your education establishment, we’ll be happy to have a conversation.
