IT Support for Schools & Education Providers
Akita provides day-to-day responsive IT support for schools, colleges, universities and other educational establishments across London and the South East.
We also regularly support other institutions with ad hoc projects, advanced IT systems requirements and consultancy.
IT Support For Schools
Teachers and lecturers face enough challenges in their days – their IT setup should not be one of them. This is why Akita offers IT services and support for schools, colleges and universities.
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.
IT Services For Schools
We also provide IT services for schools, helping them save money on their IT setup through our more than 50 managed services. Solutions we typically provide to education establishments include:
- VoIP telephone systems to reduce phone costs.
- Server care & monitoring to keep schools’ IT running.
- Connectivity to provide a reliable Internet connection.
- Microsoft Office 365 licenses to slash software expenditure.
- Cloud-hosted servers to eliminate hardware costs.
- Mobile Device Management to create safeguards around how young people use devices.
- Hardware procurement to ensure your tech meets your needs.
- On-demand IT support and consultancy to provide specialist knowledge when you need it.
As a Microsoft Gold Partner, we can secure discounted Microsoft licences for education purposes. And as a Sophos partner, we can provide advanced anti-virus and security solutions, protecting your systems from anything that pupils may throw at them.
