Education in the Information Age
By IT@Spectrum | Posted: 15 Sep 2017
There can be no shortcuts in education. Yet today’s schools, colleges and universities have to provide agile, more personalised learning, with limited budgets and closer regulation than ever before. IT@Spectrum has considerable experience of supporting educational establishments, teachers and students with services and technology, that enable learning experiences fit for a fast-moving, mobile and connected world.
Delivering world-class education
Students demand outstanding learning experiences at every stage of their education. Even pre-school children are smart technology users. Schools and colleges are also being challenged to make learning more personalised, with access to resources at all times and from any location. These issues have become key concerns for parents and children choosing the best places for their education, which can cause financial challenges for educational institutions. Choosing the right technology and services can help you create world-class educational experiences for students, while helping to reduce costs and get excellent value from your restrictive budgets.
Learning support systems created by education specialists
For many years IT@Spectrum has worked alongside educational establishments across the North of England. We have developed a range of solutions and services that give teachers and administrators the technology they need to work efficiently and productively, supported by an experienced team of field and desk-based technicians to ensure market-leading service and response times.
We have helped schools to streamline their finance and pupil records processes, simplifying data capture and reducing errors. Our innovative services, such as mobile printing, also help to extend essential services to students and teachers beyond the walls of schools and colleges. We support all these solutions and services with expertise and experience that allows them to be adapted specifically for the needs of the organisations we are working with, without disrupting the daily routine.

Print Optimisation – The education sector inevitably generates vast amounts of printer material, from glossy prospectuses to parent communications, much of which needs to be personalised. Ensure you’ve got the right equipment in the right places with our best-in-class hardware.
Cost and Energy Management - Printing costs can be a significant overhead for educational institutions, as well as placing extra demands on your IT and admin departments. IT@Spectrum’s Managed Print Service can take away routine management and servicing, ensuring you spend no more than is necessary.
It is IT@Spectrum’s experience, reliability and first-rate support that explains why so many educational establishments turn to us for help with the services, systems and processes that form the foundations of successful education provision.
