Our aim to support and maintain your school’s solutions to save time and money.

Supporting Multi-Academy Trusts

We provide solutions and support for MATs looking to achieve economies of scale, shared and integrated infrastructure. Out expert team works closely with our MAT clients to understand the specific requirements and highlight where costs can be reduced for shared services as well as pinpointing bespoke requirements for individual academies.

There are significant opportunities for MATs to save costs including shared servers, storage and backup, cloud infrastructure, broadband connectivity, cyber security and communication solutions. In addition, shared maintenance and support contracts put MATs in control of the support they receive, so our team of technicians focus their time on the projects that are a priority across the trust. As our technicians understand the unique requirements of each trust, they can also add value through specialist knowledge and understanding which can be used to further improve services and support knowledge sharing and implementation across the trust.
