I'm new to the site. It was recommended to me by one of my schools and seems to be going well so far but thought i'd introduce myself and the company on here too.
We've been in business since 1996 and we literally supply everything and anything IT. All hardware & software plus we have our own engineering department so we do a lot of maintenance contracts, installs etc.
We work with every brand out there and have all the badges you'd expect such as HP Gold Partner, Microsoft Gold partner and the rest!
Please feel free to get in touch with me directly if you need any quotes, advice or anything else!
All the best
:welcome: Luke. Make yourself at home :D

Hi, I'm Graham and I'm a public sector procurement specialist, employed within a large company providing goods & services to a number of local authorities.
One of my main roles is providing advice & guidance to educational establishments with regard to hardware & software requirements. Most of the schools & colleges that I deal with either fall under the local authorities that we support, or have a managed service agreement with the company that I work for.
I won't disclose the company that I work for, simply because I am not here to advertise them or sell anybody anything. I am however, quite happy to share with users my experiences good & bad of products that I have come across in my day to day work and share the feedback that I receive from schools that I deal with regarding products that they have purchased through me.
I am also happy to share prices with users on the forum, purely to help them with comparing market pricing with the pricing that I am able to secure. I am happy to share details of suppliers that I have either dealt with or deal with on a day to day basis and happy to put people in touch with them if they feel that they are getting a raw deal with their current supplier. I will not emblazon any suppliers details all over the forum, but will quite happily PM any users with a contact name, number & email address to put them in touch with trusted contacts.
So whats in it for me?
The opinions of users on this site with regard to products that I am not as familiar with gives me some insight into any pitfalls that I should be looking for if one of the schools that we look after were to ask for said goods. I get first hand experiences from people at the coalface who are using these products on a day to day basis & in turn can share their experiences with my customers.
Tech + game enthusiast, I prefer Mac to Windows however my gaming computer is Windows. :P.
Love linux for servers though, Debian is my favourite flavour!
:welcome: Miles, Graham and ac3xx. :D
I've just inherited the ICT post at a third level school in Dublin. I'm an engineer and teacher but this is my first time as the network manager. We are currently running netware and windows 2000 and I am spending the summer setting up server 2K8r2 and win 7, should be fun.
Everything is going well so far, printers deployed, gpo's working, print manager in place, wds deploying and sophos protecting the place.
The only thing I am struggling with is a dhcp/dns/nat/nic type issue that's preventing Internet access. I won't get into it here, but it's doing my head in at the mo!
I stumbled across this site randomly and I'm very happy to have found it, looks like a great community!
:welcome: hello and welcome!
It sounds like you have a lot on your hands. We'll be happy to keep you supplied with edugeek hobnobs to prserve your sanity!
Yum hobnobs! I'm afraid the sanity is a bit of a lost cause already but isn't that part of the job?
:D OK sanity in all of us is questionable! However the eduhobnob is the standard stress management tool on here! Fortunately we have a limitless supply!

Welcome, start by browsing here for things you have in school, but try to avoid raising old threads.
My name is Glenn and I work for a Computer Recycling and Waste Management company in South Birmingham
