"ITGUYS were able to achieve academic status for Saplings Schools with Microsoft and this enabled us to run our Emails and Intranet from the Cloud at a fraction of the commercial cost. We were also able to benefit from low academic cost for regular software such as Microsoft office"
Janet Duminy, Chairperson Saplings Schools.
Saplings are a group of special schools for Children with autism and complex needs. As a growing organisation they outgrew their existing mail and collaboration server. They put out a tender for a new mail server. They received a number of costly solutions from servers to mail providers...
IT Guys as a certified Microsoft Education Partner quickly identified a solution that would not only fulfill all of Saplings needs and more, but by leveraging Microsofts Education licensing would cost Saplings nothing permanently. This including eliminating the need to perform a costly server upgrade.
The benefit to Saplings is a reliable collaboration system that that works between all of their schools and offers the potential to store all their specialist content in one location available everywhere.
