Re: Technical Support Service
“Having used the Technical Support Service for a number of years, I can honestly say that the service we have received has been second to none, from the procurement and rollout of new computers to the management of the network. Support incidents/repairs are always responded to in a timely fashion and have often had a technician arrive the same day. The service also embraces new technology, with a shift in recent years to more mobile devices they have been able to procure, rollout and manage our growing amount of iPads including the rollout of any apps required.”

Re: Technical Support Service
“Gateshead’s Technical Support Service has always provided a prompt and efficient support to any technical issues during my time in Gateshead. They offer advice and solutions whilst always ensuring that the school’s needs and priorities are fully respected and supported. They respond quickly to requests and have a clear understanding of school needs. They have offered a range of technical support and options, which have enabled me to enhance teaching and learning in school with the support of ICT. All technicians are helpful, approachable and knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to recommend the service as an excellent support for school”.
