In partnership with Cisco Meraki, we can install reliable and high-performance WiFi for your school. Cisco Meraki is an award-winning Cloud managed WiFi solution that ensures complete coverage across the entire site. It means that WiFi would be available throughout the school to all computers and portable learning tools, including tablets and iPads.
The Cisco Meraki Cloud Controller provides powerful and intuitive management whilst eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers. Cisco Meraki’s WiFi access point also allows schools to manage network users by deploying apps and restricting access.
SIMS FMS SUPPORT
We work closely with academies, schools and local authorities to ensure we can provide full support for school MIS including SIMS FMS. We work closely with SIMS software providers Capita to ensure we are aware of any developments and provide additional support to schools as required. We know that managing and securing staff and pupil information is vital and we provide all the support you need to make the most of SIMS FMS.
If you’re looking to make some cost savings, moving your infrastructure to the cloud could be an option. We understand the rigorous performance and security standards required of schools and academies and can provide advice on how to effectively deploy cloud-based solutions at your school.
We provide daily data backup to remote servers and online to ensure your school meets the requirements for both the Data Protection Act and the Schools Financial Value Standard (SFVS).
Redstor Backup Service for Schools (RBUSS) is the market leading off-site backup service, currently being used by more than 12,000 primary schools across the UK. This fully automated system replaces the need to perform manual backups, as well as the need to purchase hardware, software or tapes. This secure backup service stores two copies of your school data in geographically separate locations within the UK and remains safe and encrypted at all times. RBUSS is also accredited by Capita and provides the ability to backup SIMS and SIMS Discover.
Our comprehensive data backup solution means that if the school lose data or functionality due to a major issue such as hardware failure, network outage or extreme weather, we can help with a rapid response. We can restore lost data, provide replacement devices and even imaging services to ensure they are all set up exactly as they need to be so that you can keep the school running smoothly.
