We’ve put together a list of all the ways that we can help your school to save money both in the short term and as part of a longer term financial plan. Whether your school is affected by the budget changes brought in by the NFF or you could simply do with some extra funding to reinvest elsewhere, we can help.

IT support

Save on average £32,000*

If your school has more than one individual support contract to manage your technologies, or if you have recruited a number of IT experts to help provide all the skills you need, then it’s likely that you are spending more money on your IT support than you need to.

We can help by providing you with a choice of IT support services in one single flexible support contract that helps you ensure your IT provision is cost efficient, safe, resilient and future-proofed through professional IT management.

*Potential saving based on an average secondary school outsourcing their entire IT support.

Flexible IT support

Hybrid support services

Co-sourcing with RM supports your in-house team with the more basic and monotonous tasks, and expertise beyond their skillset so your technicians can get on with supporting IT in the classroom, while we ensure your network is robust and secure.

Fully managed IT

Get back to focusing on teaching and learning while we completely manage your IT for you, working to support your goals and targets. Our technicians will work in school when needed, complemented by remote support, to ensure your network is managed to the highest efficiency and standards.

Support for your onsite team

Our one simple, low cost support contract for your in-house IT team covers over 50 technologies, with additional options of proactive checks, external vulnerability scans and emergency response days. With an average response time of just 30 seconds before your team speak directly with a UK-based technical specialist and we are working on your issue.

RM Cloud

Moving your software and services to the cloud

The recent Department for Education White Paper on cloud computing services outlines some of the many ways in which moving to the cloud can save schools money.

  • Cost savings in terms of buying, leasing, and maintaining photocopiers and printers, ink cartridges, paper as well as operator time.
  • Reduction of the number of servers required for hosting.
  • Taking more advantage of "free" or lower-cost cloud software offered by major providers (for example Google Apps or Microsoft Office 365).
  • Reducing the traditional cost of supporting on-premise ICT across the school.
