School ICT Support

Improving Schools’ performance through technology

We solve problems before you’re aware of them

Even simple printer problems and software updates can push your day off track. That’s why we run a suite of daily checks to ensure your IT is ready for you to hit the ground running. Our pro-active ICT support teams solve many IT technical issues before you’re even aware of them. And that’s the real benefit of the way we do things at Newark Computers Support.

Don’t take our word for it – try us out with a free IT health report worth £400.

CLEAR MONTHLY REPORTS

A single monthly report shows you how well your IT is performing. Our schools appreciate the accountability of reporting, as well as the opportunity to plan further ICT support, from IT replacements and improvements.

SAFETY NET: EMERGENCY SERVER RESPONSE

Servers rarely crash. But if they do, the results can be disastrous. Our safety net ensures an exceptionally fast response with remote support and engineers to protect your systems. In addition, our cloud backup service protects your critical school data with offsite backups.

PROJECTORS, WHITEBOARDS, AUDIO VISUAL EQUIPMENT

Regular maintenance can prolong the life of key electronic equipment in the classroom. We also provide smartboard technical support and an emergency on-site engineer response for projector and interactive whiteboard (IWB) faults.

ON-SITE ENGINEERS & TECHNICIAN VISITS

All our engineers are fully qualified and CRB checked. You can schedule on-site visits as regularly as you need to keep your IT system in fine shape.

DAWN PATROL

Regular checks every single morning fix the most common issues, before you even start your day. And last thing at night, we can also switch off dormant computers to save you electricity.

1 TO 1 DESKTOP SUPPORT

Not every IT issue requires an on-site visit. With conscientious desktop support, we can resolve the majority of issues for you without a visit from an ICT support technician.

OFSTED PANIC BUTTON

When you get the dreaded OFSTED phone call, we’ll visit for a whole day to work alongside your team and make sure all systems are running optimally. Even when things are going smoothly, NCS will always be there with ICT support, working in the background to make sure your IT performs not well, but outstandingly.

SCHOOL IT ROADMAP, REVIEW & IT DEVELOPMENT

Regular audits from our ICT support consultants mean your IT networks stay up to date in the most cost effective manner. We’ll help you with forward planning and recommendations to help you develop and maintain cost effective IT systems to help you run your primary school.

Finance

Why do schools rent / lease equipment?

Have you ever wondered why no-one owns a mobile phone? That’s because the industry has conditioned us into the way in which we acquire the use of mobile technology. People may believe they do but the reality is they commit to a monthly payment over a period of time, at the end of which they want to upgrade their phone to the latest model available or at least one with additional features.

The truth is they pay for what the equipment does and not what it is.

The funding program works exactly the same way for schools and it applies to ANY equipment. It enables schools to pay for the equipment over a period of time as they receive the benefit from it, instead of before they receive the benefit from it. And as they’re paying for what the equipment does and not what it is, there is no real benefit in owning capital equipment.
