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.
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.
All of our supported customers also receive a Technical Account Manager – a senior engineer who can 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.
