Case study explaining how Link ICT provided emergency interim IT Support to a local multi-academy trust in Derby.

When a local multi-academy trust (MAT) contacted Link ICT to request emergency IT support over the summer, we were certain that we would be able to help. Due to staff changes, the MAT needed a trusted IT support company to provide interim IT support in place of its internal team from the end of the summer until the new school year. 

Link ICT was quickly able to put together a cost-effective IT Support package to bridge the gap whilst the internal team was re-organised. The MAT needed support for 10 sites which all had varying needs. Our solution involved providing remote IT support and a fixed fee for onsite call-outs. Our expertise and knowledge of the education sector and how schools operate meant that our team was quickly able to understand each site’s specific needs and were rapidly up to speed delivering the services required throughout this interim project.

As a result, the MAT benefited from unlimited remote support for incidents affecting ICT issues, with access to our client ticket logging portal and support by telephone. Our knowledgeable technicians then worked with the customer to resolve their IT issues and provided dedicated remote support during their school working hours which were from 8:30am to 5:30pm. If an onsite visit was needed, once the work was approved by the MAT central team, our technician agreed the most convenient time to visit the location. This approach ensured all IT issues requiring a site visit could be fixed swiftly and efficiently.

All of our technicians are passionate about education and business and understand the importance that IT plays in all organisations. Our managed IT support ensures that you’re never without help when you need it. Our services can be delivered on a standalone basis or delivered as an extension to your in-house team.

If your organisation could benefit from a dedicated, ‘can-do’, experienced technician or our cost-effective remote support, contact us today.
