Largely thin client technology based solution providing many benefits such as anytime, anywhere access with a consistent user interface and centralised management.

State-of-the-art smart-card-driven cashless catering, access control, e-registration, and library management.

Sensory applications for special needs pupils.

Such solutions are supported both locally in the schools and centrally from the Middlesbrough Network Operating Centre.

The team is also responsible for delivering a managed ICT service to local primary schools in Middlesbrough and they too can benefit from the expertise and knowledge gained in delivering state-of-the-art solutions across the country.

The team has a high concentration of skills and expertise in this marketplace, demonstrated by the achievement of Becta and SIMS accreditations and a number of new business wins.
