Back in 2009 we discovered there was a real need to provide WiFi as a service rather than a product, particularly within the education sector as it was becoming more important to comply with growing technology and follow the educational curriculum.
Our background within the education sector brings us together to provide a wireless solution to enable schools to spread their costs over a 3 year service level agreement to avoid a large capital expense. Our focus is to provide your school with a fast, secure and managed WiFi service to ensure you receive complete peace of mind, and allow teachers to focus on what they do best, teach!
Simpli-Fi gave a detailed presentation to my Governing Body, offering a 30day free trial period. The installation was professionally carried out with little disruption to the running of the school. As we were highly impressed by the trial service, we agreed to commit to the 3-year service level agreement. To date, we have had superb delivery of service, with prompt back up and would readily recommend it to any school planning to extend ICT learning within their organization.
Simpli-Fi have been fantastic at giving us all round coverage with minimum problems. The children are able to work outside using the wireless system, as we requested, plus every area of the building is covered. I can only recall once having to telephone Simpli-Fi with a problem and because it was an odd one that they could not detect offsite, a techie arrived on a bike within half an hour of placing the call (only to find that it was an IT issue and not a wireless one!). We definitely could not fault the service and are very happy.
We have been very happy with the Managed Wireless Solution from Simpli-Fi. It has enabled us to extend learning across the curriculum by using groups of laptops within the classroom setting. Simpli-Fi staff have worked very closely with us during the initial setup of the laptops and were extremely helpful. Since then, the system has been so reliable that we have rarely needed to contact the Simpli-Fi help desk but when we do, we are always happy with the polite and speedy response.
The SimpliFi solution provides our school with fast and reliable wireless cover, an efficient help desk and full time monitoring of our wireless system. The wireless access has enabled us to use ICT as part of every lesson and liberates us from the ICT suite. Our children are very excited to access online learning in their classrooms as an integral part of their day to day lessons.
We deploy an extensive IT solution across all our schools - with a heavy focus on mobile devices and highly resilient, high bandwidth wi-fi as core to our pedagogical delivery and our successful outcomes. Simpli-Fi has made the process of installing, monitoring, troubleshooting and updating this core infrastructure straightforward and affordable and the combination of knowledgeable, helpful staff and a keen focus on our needs as their customer is greatly welcomed. Given the priority we place on high availability connectivity, the Simpli-Fi service and team continue to provide a critical support for our schools.
