Merger of PrimaryTec and Tech4Schools will 'improve ICT in schools'

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 24 Jan 2017

A Hull based information and communications technology (ICT) business has announced the completion of its merger with Tech4Schools.

PrimaryTec's continuing mission of delivering a complete ICT support solution for education across the city and surrounding areas has been bolstered by this recent acquisition. The new firm will continue to operate with the PrimaryTec name.

As well as a visual rebrand and a new website, an entire new service package has been developed and was unveiled before representatives from schools across Hull and East Riding.

Mike Corlyon, technical director at PrimaryTec, said: "It was something that made complete sense; given the nature of the two existing businesses, their expertise, and the way in which we are delivering ICT now and in the future."We've always afforded the opportunity to both explain and provide technology within the education sector, bridging that gap between the need for information, and providing the right package by offering simple and flexible solutions."

PrimaryTec showcased its new, and more flexible, way of accessing and improving ICT in education at the launch event last week.

In front of a packed function room at the Hallmark Hotel, North Ferriby, PrimaryTec revealed its new support package PTOne, allowing schools greater access to ICT support on a more regular basis at no extra cost.

Mr Corylon said: "We install useful technologies while providing the training, ongoing support and the continuing development. "Everyone becomes more knowledgeable and confident with the use of their ICT – it's a win-win."

Prior to the merger, Tech4Schools built a platform for teachers and ICT specialists to access information and training on the latest developments and technology available to schools, making it a natural fit alongside PrimaryTec's expertise in installation.

PrimaryTec believes it is now in a solid position to offer all educational facilities a very broad spectrum of services, backed up with knowledge, skills and experience.

PrimaryTec has shown continuous growth since it was established in 2008, with a five-fold increase in staff and a near 2,000 per cent increase in revenue.
