SERVERS

Servers are the unrecognised heroes of educational ICT. Invisible to all until they fail or run out of capacity.  At Trusol we are very careful to specify systems that exactly match the requirement and leave room to grow without breaking the budget. We generally base our servers on Dell hardware, though other options are available if required.  We can offer inbuilt resilience in the form of additional hard disks and dual power supply. The remote access controller allows schools to have robust remote support which allows for a speedy response in the event of a major system failure.

Trusol is expert at building the server software systems, including backup and archiving and our servers meet the requirements specified by Capita to run its applications (SIMS, FMS and Discover).

At Trusol we always recommend a suitable SLA based support package for servers. We can provide predictive maintenance to stop your server running slowly or running out of capacity as well as installing essential security updates.  If the worst happens we can rebuild your servers and restore them from backups with minimum downtime.

PC’S & PRINTERS

PC’s

Desktop PCs have been the mainstream of educational computing for many years. We recommend and supply Dell, HP, and Lenovo systems, generally in single box configurations that are robust, compact and easy to maintain.

 

Once your new PCs arrive we’ll be there to install them and make sure everything works seamlessly, there is more to buying and using a new PC than a box arriving at reception!

 

Printers

A cost cutting blog started by the Microsoft education team in 2010 uncovered the fact than an average secondary school uses over 1 million sheets of A4 paper per year. Whilst usage might have dropped in the intervening years print and paper costs are still a substantial drain on school budgets.

 

Paper remains an important communication tool and we appreciate the challenges and diversity of printing requirements in school as well as the flexibility and cost control required.

 

At Trusol we recommend HP, Cannon or Dell printers, chosen for their high-reliability ease of use and low running costs, and we’ll swiftly install them on your network too.

 

VISUALISERS

A visualiser is a very flexible teaching tool, perhaps a little out of fashion but still an excellent way for teachers and students to display books, worksheets, maps and other 3D objects on an interactive panel or screen so they can easily be seen by a large audience.

 

Being able to share writing or other work with the whole class can transform the teaching experience, especially in a primary school.

 

Trusol is able to recommend and supply visualisers, seamlessly connected to your network and screens.

DIGITAL SIGNAGE

Digital signage is an extremely flexible, cost effective & dynamic way of communicating through an array of display screens in your school, all controlled centrally across your network from your own server or a cloud-based portal.

 

A digital signage solution generally uses large, high definition display screens to deliver a dynamic, eye-catching multimedia presentation to your desired audience in the form of video clips, animations or still images.

 

From a single screen in your reception area through to a large scale deployment of many screens throughout the school and covering everything from corridors, staffrooms, waiting rooms or even external screens where the parents congregate regularly, a well-designed digital signage solution is the easiest and fastest way to reach large numbers of people with the click of a button.

 

Trusol is able to offer your school an exciting proposition and easy migration onto a digital signage solution which best suits your individual requirements.

Trusol can help you choose the right Servers, PCs, Digital signage and peripherals for your school. 

Plus our complete supply, install and support service will keep them running smoothly too.
