C24 presented to 20 Birmingham Schools this week about the concept of mobile learning and UK based storage for student data. The event was well attended and we were asked for further meetings by a number of the Secondary schools. David Ricketts Head of Marketing for C24 said “we have a good understanding of the educational marketplace and we have been asked by a number of partners to present at such events. Mobile devices in schools is currently a very hot topic, and we are helping a number of schools in developing their future strategies.
Arthur Terry School, Birmingham have announced that they have selected C24 in conjunction with DTP Group to introduce a managed print solution into the school.
Arthur Terry is one of the top 10 comprehensives in the country operating a state of the art IT infrastructure, but had an ageing fleet of copiers and printers and outdated charging and management systems for student print and copy. “It was an inefficient and complex mix of different machines and technologies and the costs involved in supporting and maintaining all these various printers were high,” says Chris Butler, Technical Services Manager Arthur Terry School. “We needed to consolidate and come up with a system that would run to defined standards and meet the needs of everyone in the School”.
The Managed Print Service is expected to save the school around 20% on their print costs with the contract including support and automatic replenishment of consumables. This all inclusive service eliminates much of the administrative burden Arthur Terry School used to carry and reducing the fleet will also result in significant power savings.
Paul Hemming, Managing Director commented that “this is a great win for C24 as it not only solidifies our relationship with Arthur Terry School but also is a great start to our relationship with the DTP Group. We are hoping soon to be releasing further information about new cutting edge solutions between ourselves and The DTP Group”
C24 are pleased to announce that they have been selected to undertake systems integration work at Harper Adams University College. The solution, based around HP SAN and server technologies, is the latest in a series of wins for the Birmingham based company. Roger Greenhalgh, Head of IT at the University College, said that C24′s knowledge of IT solutions and their approach to account management were important in the decision to contract the work to C24.
David Ricketts Head of Marketing C24 commented “Harper Adams University engaged with C24 because of our knowledge of HP SAN technology and our drive to offer the very best account management possible. These comments just confirms that our investment in training, people and the C24 culture is extremely important to our clients and our future. We are very happy adding Harper Adams to our client portfolio”.
