If you're looking for a new telecoms supplier for your school, then the chances are you'll start by requesting quotes from three different suppliers. With recent cuts to already stretched budgets, schools are under more pressure than ever. So, of course, it stands to reason that your choice of telecoms provider will depend on the price you are quoted. But is cost the only factor to consider?
As a busy school business manager, you don't want to spend any longer than necessary looking for the right supplier. That is why it makes sense to choose an education specialist.
Choosing a supplier who has been pre-approved by recognised bodies in the education sector gives you peace of mind and saves you the time it would take to check your supplier's credentials. Can all of your shortlisted suppliers provide references from multiple schools?

With our wealth of experience in the education sector, we are uniquely placed to advise you on the best system for your school.
Of course, ensuring best value always will be a priority for school business managers. The more you can save on expenses such as utility bills and telecoms, the more budget you'll have to spend where it really counts: the pupils. An education specialist supplier will understand the pressures you are under to stay within budget, and will work with you to find the most affordable solution.

Any disruption to the school routine makes everyone's job harder. You don't need us to tell you that everyday is busy in your school. The last thing you need in the middle of a busy school day is an engineer making a racket and disturbing lessons, or the health and safety hazard of cables strewn across the corridors.
"Brilliant, tidy worker, engineer became ‘part of the school he fitted in so well." - St Peter C of E Middle School
