Cloud technologies

The development of cloud technology is enabling changes to the way that technology is used in education. By making the use of cloud technology schools can reduce their costs whilst increasing collaboration, productivity and flexibility. Many of the new platforms from Apple, Google and Microsoft are free for schools to use, what you need as a school is a partner who can make sure these free platforms deliver maximum impact right across your establishment.

RM can help you make the most of those free applications and ensure they are integrated into your existing technologies.

Why it works for you


By utilising free software and online storage you can reduce the costs of on-site storage, software licences and with increased online collaboration you can help to reduce consumable costs such as paper and printing.


Cloud technologies allow pupils and teachers to use resources, set homework and give real time feedback both in and outside of the school.

Teaching and learning

Microsoft Class Dashboard, Google Classroom and iTunes U can significantly transform the way that you use technology in the classroom and beyond the school walls. Real-time editing of documents by multiple people, fantastic content from around the world, seamless deliver of homework. A future with one of these products can be more exciting for students and much easier for teachers.


One of the major fears about the cloud is security of your data, we can advise you how to properly consider these risks and how to minimise them whislt still enjoying the power of cloud technology.


Ensuring your pupils and teachers have seamless access without needing to remember lots of usernames and passwords is essential, we provide the technology that allows that to happen. Students can be automatically signed in to the cloud services that you want them to have simply by logging into a school device or a portal.


Our dedicated support team are highly experienced in implementing, managing and embedding cloud services.

Many, many years of excellent support. A real understanding of the issues facing school networks.

Identity management

Identity management in schools is another common barrier to schools adoption of cloud technologies as the process of adding new users and populating email addresses is so time consuming. The decision to implementing a new cloud based technology can often mean another username and password for students and staff to remember.

RM provides a seamless way to manage user identities in your school with RM Unify. Users can access cloud content via one username and password, on any device, anytime, all linked up via your school network and MIS data.

Cloud storage

Cloud storage is now significantly cheaper than having to purchase, implement and support hardware on the school premises. We can help you decide which is the best solution for you and how you implement it within your school, whether it be making the most of free user storage from Google and Microsoft or implementing a backup strategy in the cloud.

Everything is faster, stability is better, there's less down time and we are less stressed, everybody wins.
