    Techs to PC ratio

    Hi,

    Our PC/MAC estate is constantly growing but the technician staff number remains the same.

    I was wondering what other colleges have as a ratio. (We have 9 techs to 3500 approx. computers).

    Any help appreciated
    David.

    1 NM 1 ST and our Media Guy who's quickly learning the technical side of things! - circa 350 machines I think.
    I think the use of remote software, SCCM and patience (mostly on our part!) helps keep things ticking over, and this day and age (circumstances depending) the careful use of monitoring software, helpdesk etc help keep staffing efficiency stable.

    Just checked, 119 machines in all including 2 servers, plus the usual 17 whiteboards and 19 projectors, and the website.

    I think I need a pay rise

    1 x NM (Me), 1 x Classroom Tech (Term Time Only) & 1 x Apprentice Tech for approx. 500 devices. Bit of a joke really, and they wonder why I'm getting snappy recently!
