Class Technology Solutions: the independent’s choice

Sponsored: Peter Maslyn describes how Class Technology Solutions have become the technology partner of choice in the independent sector

Class Technology Solutions (CTS) is your trusted technology partner of choice. We are an innovative Microsoft Gold Solutions and Google Partner that provides managed IT support services and solutions exclusively to and across the broad and complex terrain of the UK education sector.

We are a passionate, forward-thinking company, dedicated exclusively to investing in the future of schools and colleges.

Founded in 2006, CTS continues to go from strength to strength, demonstrating healthy, year-on-year growth in the independent sector. It is growth in both scope and reach. Our partnerships with schools and colleges are open and transparent; this is reflected in our ICT support models and services which are easy to implement and adopt.

We achieve this through alignment with our partner schools’ aspirations, visions and values – as well as their desired future learning experiences – whilst managing costs and improving reliability of systems and services.

CTS’ offerings have widened and deepened in response to changes in the IT support requirements of schools as they adjust to the introduction of new technologies in the post-Covid 19 environment.

CTS is spearheading the provision of Cloud-based services and integration, implementing a dynamic mixture of Microsoft Cloud-based services including the whole Microsoft Office 365 Suite, Microsoft Azure, SharePoint and Google Cloud Solutions – implementing the whole ‘G-Suite for Education’ product suite.

Additionally, CTS continues to furnish schools with software and hardware products across the full spectrum of their requirements, including:

● Infrastructure design and implementation
● Physical and wireless networking
● Specialist advice and consultancy on Microsoft licensing, systems integration and design
● Complete server, desktop and network refreshes
● IT training on collaborative learning and technologies
● Mobile device deployment (parent and purchasing schemes, BYOD, etc).

Taking care of your IT needs

The aim of our services is to provide you with tailored, bespoke support arrangements that match your needs and deliver consistent, high-class, professional support services.

Class Managed Services consists of an array of mechanisms and tools:
