Langley Grammar School achieves integrated communications

Langley Grammar School is a co-educational selective school in Langley. The school has been independent of the local authority since gaining academy status in April 2011. They offer a forward-thinking academic curriculum and place great emphasis on participation in a wide range of sporting, cultural and social activities.

Challenge

Solution

Continual improvement

Simon said of the implementation project:

It was an impeccable changeover. CORETX managed the project really well and everything went very smoothly.

Since the school started using Microsoft BPOS, internal communication processes have vastly improved. A lot of time that was previously spent trying to organise meetings without access to other people’s calendars has been saved.

We are so much better organised now that we are using Outlook – the sharing facility means that everyone can see what everyone else is doing and we can all also access the school year calendar providing visibility term times are and who is teaching when.

Continual Improvement

Having an integrated email and calendar system has helped the school to operate as a more professional business, and they were so pleased with the way that CORETX managed the project, as well as the after-sales service that they provide, that they have used them for several other IT projects. The most recent being the virtualisation of five servers, which the school expects to deliver multiple cost  and environmental benefits in the long-term, but immediately has benefited from all of the applications they use working more efficiently and having just one back-up to do.

Another benefit that the school is realising through its relationship with CORETX is having an expert team of professionals to rely on for advice and assistance. The school has two very competent in-house ICT (Information Communications Technology) professionals but the knowledge and experience of the CORETX team is much wider, meaning that the school’s technicians are free to concentrate on other projects knowing that the CORETX team is available to resolve any issues for them.

It’s the confidence factor that CORETX delivers for us – we have peace of mind as we know we can rely on them. I can honestly say that the CORETX team has never let us down.
