LICENCES
CALL PLANS
GET TO WORK

Schools and academies already have access to free Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) licences to give you the latest office, teaching and learning tools, plus secure email and file storage you can access from any device. These licences can be easily upgraded to accommodate the Microsoft's Phone System app.

We will migrate your existing numbers to Gamma, the UK's top SIP provider. This means your school will be prepared for Openreach's PSTN and ISDN switch-off deadline and will benefit from free calls to UK landlines and mobiles. You will enjoy business continuity features and protection from dial-through fraud too.

Use Microsoft-accredited handsets or headsets plugged into your device of choice to enjoy all the features you would get from a traditional phone system. Work from anywhere but feel connected to your colleagues, students and parents and enjoy easy collaboration using Microsoft's unified communications tools.

BENEFITS

TEACH ANYWHERE

Lessons can be delivered live with the teacher as the presenter broadcasting to students using their devices in their homes. Teachers can share their screens, files and links via a chat facility. They can create breakout sessions for smaller groups, set quizzes and mark homework all from one platform rather than having to use multiple apps. These online classrooms can be created for up to 49 pupils with the teacher in charge of the mute controls!

STAY IN TOUCH

Schools need to find ways of keeping in contact with isolating year groups and students. Safeguarding rules require teachers and tutors to contact students regularly and for calls to be monitored. Teachers do not want to use their personal mobiles to call students and parents, but neither do they want their calls ignored because the number is withheld. Teams can present the schools’ main number from whichever extension staff members are calling from. You can use Teams for parents' evenings too.

DRIVE DOWN COSTS

This should be a welcome development as schools get to grips with the cost of social distancing. This solution does not require any upfront capital. Like Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams and our calling plans are a subscription service with all call and support costs included in a set monthly fee. You can add users as you grow by simply adding on extra licences.
