How we help colleges and universities

With a combination of students, staff, contractors, visiting lecturers and other guests using a variety of learning and teaching styles, colleges and universities can be a complex environment to manage. And faced with a 600% rise in education-related cybercrime, further and higher education institutions must strike a balance between offering the best student experience to attract and retain students while maintaining the highest level of security.

We help colleges and universities address the challenges of delivering modern and secure IT services for all key stakeholders, both on and off campus.

From BYOD and ongoing device management, to enhanced cloud security, SharePoint migration and Azure services, AspiraCloud provides the latest cloud solutions, managed IT services, and training, to maximise your use of Microsoft 365 so you can confidently deliver the best experience for students and staff in a secure way.

How we help schools and multi-academy trusts

We help schools and multi academy trusts adopt a new approach to technology through the provision of robust, proactive and innovative cloud strategies, IT support, mobile device management and more, to meet all teaching and learning objectives.

We work with best in class cloud services featuring the latest Microsoft 365 technologies to optimise existing technology, enhance IT governance and create the ultimate classroom experience for both staff and students.

From laptop schemes and ongoing device management, to cloud migration and remote learning, we offer the latest cloud services and solutions, devices, licensing and upgrades, including Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Endpoint Manager and other Microsoft technologies, to truly modernise your school IT environment.

Working with school headteachers, IT Technicians, Heads of ICT and other school leaders, AspiraCloud can help find the ideal cloud solution so you can create a serverless school that delivers best value for money while meeting all your compliance, regulatory and security concerns.

We can also manage all your schools’ IT support, reducing the pressure on teachers and negating the need for unpredictable firefighting, to ultimately safeguard your school.
