Cloud Services

Cloud Platforms are increasingly becoming the solution to modern education needs and demands of schools. With anytime anywhere access, our services provide increased security and collaboration for peer groups including governors, staff, pupils and teachers. The benefits of moving to the cloud can have a positive impact of every aspect of school life.

We offer a range of services designed with your school, academy or trust’s priorities in mind.

If you are planning to move (or have already moved) to a cloud platform, we provide various packages to support use of the Cloud across your education community. Whether you are interested in going to Office 365 or GSuite, we are experts in both platforms.  We can help you decide between the similar feature sets, walk you through how they are developing and when they are released.

Some Benefits of moving to a Cloud Platform:

  • Security & Compliance

    While we all have a responsibility for GDPR compliance akin to Safeguarding, both Microsoft and Google education offerings are fully GDPR compliant in their use of data, data centre storage and communications through their native tools. Their administration controls further secure the environment through user access, user rights and device management.

  • Cloud Based Deployment

    Deployment can be modelled according to a school’s or MAT’s needs and with considerations for preserving content of user leavers.

  • Anytime and Anywhere Access

    Microsoft and Google offer a range of access points, both online and with Smart mobile apps, with online and offline access removing compatibility and mobile access issues.

  • Improved Communications and Collaboration Across and Between Users

    With access to a range of applications from email, discussion tools, shared documents and calendars deployed to meet your needs for pupils, teaching staff, support staff and Governors.

  • Online Meetings

    Made easily with Skype for Business or Google Hangouts, physical boundaries are broken down.

  • Competitive Cost

    Our experienced staff will work with you to ensure that the deployment matches your specific needs;

    • setting-up and deploying your tenancy
    • supporting sustainable process development for users
    • identifying and delivering training needs

Once you have migrated to a new Cloud platform you can continue to work with us, as part of your strategic plan, to embed the new services in your school through a series of training sessions.
