Original reason for joining Computeam?

At the time of selecting to partner with Computeam were looking to replace an incumbent service provider. We wanted to build an in-house team with 3rd party support. Computeam stood out as being an education focussed support partner - this was totally unique when compared with all the other providers. And this has been the main theme of working with Computeam: always looking for educational benefits brought by ICT development, alongside first rate support when it is needed.

What are the main benefits of the service received?

Computeam are a well resourced and reliable partner. Whenever our in-house team are unable to solve a problem, Computeam are, and they are always willing to pass on the knowledge rather than retaining it for themselves. Alongside this, we have used Computeam for a number of small and large scale projects, all designed to improve ICT provision with the classroom at the heart of any decisions.
