Modrus has a wealth of experience in provisioning and supporting robust, intelligent IT services for schools
Through understanding the unique demands of IT in an education environment we can help you design, plan, implement and support the tools and solutions you need so that in the ‘step ahead’ stakes, you can be the ones in front.
Modern schools often lead the way in implementing best of breed infrastructure and applications
The rapid integration of online learning into the curriculum has made IT in general a critical enabler for academic success, whilst reliable, universal and well-managed high-speed Internet access is particularly important.
Embracing, integrating and then evolving legacy fibre systems and switches – all outside of core hours is one of the ways Modrus has helped some of our schools customers to achieve this.
In terms of supporting users, increasingly, staff and pupils arrive with a wide array of their own devices which ideally need to be enabled for hassle free, but controlled network access. This can now be done securely in an automated self-service workflow using proven network management applications.
Meanwhile expansion into IP telephony and integrated comms creates cost savings running to thousands, not to mention significant increased flexibility.
Microsoft Lync, for example, means school colleagues can now track and keep in direct contact with each other via phone, messaging, email, online meeting and video – wherever and whenever they are ‘signed in and present’ on the school network.
