Avanti Schools Trust
“Opening any new school is a challenge, but when you’ve only got 2 weeks to design, configure and implement your IT, that challenge becomes even more daunting. With just two weeks to go before Avanti Court Primary School opened in Redbridge, we needed to find a company who could immediately begin working with our builders to ensure a fully integrated solution.
Joskos Solutions were recommended to us as a company that can be relied upon to listen to the customer and deliver an outstanding service. In our experience so far, they have not only met that brief, but have delivered above and beyond what we expected – enabling us to open the school on time with a fully functioning ICT system.
What has impressed us most about Joskos Solutions is their attention to detail and ability to communicate effectively at all levels. Meeting with the architect to give design guidance, liaising with BT to ensure that a telephone line was installed, ensuring that the builders correctly installed the required cabling, ordering and installing all the IT equipment and working with Redbridge Local Authority to establish secure broadband links. All these communications happened seamlessly, ensuring that the school’s Head Teacher and the Avanti Schools Trust were kept fully informed about progress, giving us the confidence that the education of the children at Avanti Court School would not be disrupted.
We now have four Reception classrooms, one Year 1 classroom and admin areas all with fully functioning IT that is supported by a Joskos Engineer. Next summer we take over the remainder of the site and will refurbish the existing school building and equip the remaining classrooms. Joskos are already giving us advice and guidance, and we see this as the beginning of an excellent and rewarding partnership that will benefit not only Avanti Court Primary School, but also other schools opened by the Avanti Schools Trust.
We would not hesitate in recommending Joskos Solutions to other schools and school sponsors. They understand the challenges of opening a new school, they ‘get’ education and have worked hard to support our vision, but most important of all, they have listened to us at every step of the way and ensured that they have delivered an outstanding service that fully aligns with our ethos.”
