Effective IT SUPPORT FOR SCHOOLS
Educational institutions face unique challenges when it comes to IT support. And unfortunately, many schools experience poor service from council-run IT support providers, leading to frustrations and hindrances in their day-to-day operations.
Akita’s specialised IT support for schools and higher education providers can help leave those worries behind. We offer fast guaranteed response times, ensuring that your IT issues are promptly addressed, minimizing disruptions to teaching and learning activities.
Our managed IT services go beyond just fixing problems; we provide guided consultancy to assist you in developing your IT systems, ensuring they’re secure for staff and students. We understand the importance of aligning IT advancements with your budget, and our experts will work closely with you to create a roadmap for your school’s technological growth.
Furthermore, our IT support services can seamlessly supplement any existing in-house IT resources, offering co-managed IT support and wider expertise to tackle even the most complex IT challenges.
With Akita as your trusted IT partner, you can rest assured that your school’s IT infrastructure is in capable hands, enabling you to focus on providing quality education to your students.

Why Work With A Professional IT Managed Service Provider?
Educational establishments are increasingly adopting complex IT setups. While an onsite IT manager may be able to handle operations day-to-day, when it comes to updating hardware, integrating new software or embracing cloud computing solutions, we find that they can often do with the helping hand of our engineers and consultants as an overflow.
Equally, we have spoken with many Academy trusts that understand the savings and business benefits of outsourced IT support for schools. Akita’s large helpdesk and breadth of expertise make us far more effective than an in-house support team. And because our support SLAs are geared towards businesses, you’ll find that our response times eclipse many education-focused IT support organisations: you’ll get a resolution in minutes, not days.
Akita’s engineers are also fully DBS checked, ensuring schools stay within safeguarding regulations. This means we can also provide education establishments with our proactive IT support service – periodic onsite maintenance days that prevent the types of IT interruptions (software upgrades, compatibility issues, poor hardware performance etc.) that can really disrupt lessons.
All of our supported customers also receive an account manager who will help with the strategic development of your IT. For education providers, this can include actions such as segregating networks (to split between staff and students) and finding the most efficient way to run your IT systems.

Cyber Security Partner
IT Security For Schools & Higher Education
IT security is of growing importance to education providers. Schools, colleges and universities are increasingly the targets of ransomware attacks, some of which have been known to render systems redundant for weeks on end.
And given that thousands of students can be using IT networks, defending systems can present a real challenge for many education providers.
Akita offers a wide range of cyber security services, providing a ‘belt and braces’ security approach for schools and education providers. We can offer a wide range of security services, including enterprise-grade measures to stop cyberattacks from impacting your systems.
We also supply efficient backup solutions to ensure your operations continuity. So if your organisation is impacted by a disaster event, we’ll have you up and running again in hours, not weeks.
