Lowering phone costs and working with school budgets

As a school, how does the idea of potentially saving money on your phone system as well as your daily calls and rental charges sound? How about actually getting a system that really works for your own unique set of circumstances and improving communication at the same time?

Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?

In reality, it’s really not. We’ve worked with hundreds of schools that now know just how true it is.

At a time when budgets are being squeezed, it’s important you know that you’re getting value out of every figure on the cash flow plan. That’s exactly where we come in; we tell you what will work and what won’t. We’ll let you know where you can save costs and where you’re getting good value.

Here’s a little about our flexible approach to working with schools…

Updated out of hours

We’ve worked with hundreds of schools and educational institutions over the past 30 years and one thing we’ve definitely learnt is that no two sites are ever the same. Whether it’s staff levels, campus composition or school hours and holidays, each school has its own unique nuances.

So where does that leave your phone system? The most cost-effective solutions are the ones that are built around solving your specific needs. That’s not just cost in monetary terms, it’s in time, staff and resources. The more tailored your solution, the better it’ll be on the bottom line.

That’s why we take time to visit schools, we understand how they work and how best we can build a system that works to solve all of those unique quirks in procedures, location or whatever they may be.

While many phone suppliers deploy a standard approach to schools, our approach starts with what you need to get from the system, how you need it to work and how best it can benefit your reception staff, your teachers and all of your other day to day contacts.

That’s how we start saving you money, whilst improving your communication.

We know that it’s not always possible to outlay the full capital cost of a new phone system or any large piece of technology in year one. After all, budgets are being tightened; we get that. We’ve worked with a number of schools on financing packages that allow them to spread costs over a number of years, enabling them to enjoy the benefits from day one, while allowing them to work effectively within their own budgets.

Our experience and systems…

As we’ve mentioned, we’ve been working with schools across the country for 30 years. With time comes experience and knowledge. We know what works and what doesn’t. We can quickly identify simple ways to improve performance while also mitigating additional costs. The schools we work with often stay with us for years and years (we’ve got one of the highest client retention rates in our industry); they know what they’re getting and they know they get pragmatic advice from a business that knows the sector inside out.

Our experience and systems…

We’re so convinced that we can help schools improve their communication systems that we even offer a free review. At a time when people believe nothing comes for free this really is a no obligation offer – we’ll talk you through what we think can be done and tell you how we would do it.
