Education Cloud Section

Education Cloud

Your data anywhere, anytime

Secure & flexible cloud environments designed to save costs and alleviate menial IT tasks.

Cloud Computing has been a hot topic in education IT for several years and many colleges, schools and universities are realising the benefits and adoption is on the increase. IT is rapidly moving from a function that is run, managed and maintained in-house to an outsourced service hosted in a secure environment and managed by a specialist provider.

Cloud computing services are attractive to the education sector because they enable colleges, schools and universities  to transfer the responsibility of running on-premises hardware and software to a specialist provider, who manage the hassles and costs that otherwise burden IT departments, such as software upgrades and hardware maintenance.

Cloud is a pay as you consume technology which means you can budget your IT costs into a monthly manageable sum. A hosted solution via a secure privately owned fibre circuit enables the hosting of a range of services from IT data and applications, to disaster recovery or telephony which can provide significant cost savings.

Reduce Printing Costs Section

Reduce Printing Costs

Keep costs down

Helping you control the numerous documents and files that are printed each day, our managed service will actively reduce costs, whilst increasing productivity.

With so many students and staff printing numerous documents on a daily basis, keeping track of these costs, can often prove to be a real headache. 

From reports to assignments, students, tutors and admin staff will require use of a print area most days, coming and going and until now leaving no evidence of a print trail.

In addition to the heavy print loads from manuals, work sheets and assignments, users often have no consideration for the waste in terms of paper, and particularly through using costly colour ink when work could easily be printed in mono. 

Developed in conjunction with network technicians and staff from a number of educational establishments, print management solution ‘UniFlow’ is designed to actively track and account for each document printed, scanned or faxed.

Through unique ID’s, UniFlow traces each person’s use, allowing administrators to monitor and analyse what users have printed, where they have printed and even the volume in which they have printed. 

Taking full control of costs, UniFlow restricts certain users or machines from accessing select functions such as colour print, preventing the waste of costly toner and conveniently assigning costs back to the user or department.
