    Mac Specialists - Who would you trust?

    Afternoon All
    Just a quick question that I'm putting out there, I'm looking for an Apple Educational specialist to come in train teachers, set up kit, advise etc etc. Can anyone recommend a good company?

    KRCS have dedicated Education Specialists who should be able to advise you (https://www.krcs.co.uk/pages/education/contact-the-team).

    Square Group are pretty awesome. They do the Apple professional Development day and will give it you for free if you order quite a few (30+ i think) iPads etc.

    Let me know if you want me to pass on some contact details.

    Not sure if either of them will come in and do training, but Toucan Computers and Solutions-inc have done very well with us over the years.

    Heard nothing but good from these chaps - IT Solutions | Apple Authorised Reseller | Jigsaw24

    I believe they look after the macs at media city where the BBC and ITV are based.

    I'd agree with FM-GM

    They did a full install of 110 macs on our site, configured and built the network. Teachers were also given some excellent basics on Mac's training too.


    Would fully recommend these!

    if you have any questions please get in touch.
