Chess Devices - Designed for Education
For schools' IT professionals, the countdown is on to a new academic term. 2020 brings with it a fresh new challenge - the imminent demise of Windows 7 Support. Although there are a range of options, sitting tight and doing nothing is no longer a viable plan.
It's the beginning of the long school break - so it's also the countdown to a new academic term and the whole new set of challenges awaiting schools' IT professionals.
From ensuring student data is secure to facilitating classroom technology, helping teaching and support staff keep up to date with new platforms and apps, to the deployment and maintenance of a multitude of devices and applications, the role of IT in education is pivotal.
2020 brings with it a fresh new challenge - the imminent demise of Windows 7 Support. Although there are a range of options, sitting tight and doing nothing is no longer a viable plan.
Migrating to Windows 10 is a possibility on certain devices, but in most cases, it's legacy hardware that's been running Windows 7 - hardware that has also finally reached the end of the road.
The capital outlay needed for a large scale refresh has been a significant stumbling block. However, there is now an affordable, manageable option - leasing.
Know exactly how much you'll be spending each year, with regular, predictable, set payments. Costs are spread and budget remains available for other key projects.
Disposing of out of date, obsolete equipment is not straightforward. Leased devices are simply returned at the end of the term, and data is securely erased.
Providing the tech students need plays a key role in maintaining the reputation of a school or college. Leased equipment is refreshed on a regular basis, helping drive successful learning outcomes.
Chess's specialist schools service can offer laptops and pcs at exclusive education rates, on 36 month terms. Devices are returned at the end of the lease, in compliance with The Department For Education.
