Helping schools and the education sector stay connected for less

As the education sector faces more challenges in managing outdated technology, budget cuts, and security threats, we are here to provide a solution. Our commitment to helping schools, colleges, and universities stay connected and ahead using the latest technologies sets us apart.

Airacom is a leading provider of telecom and connectivity services for schools in the UK. We offer a wide range of solutions to help schools improve their connectivity, communication, and security. Our solutions are designed to meet the specific needs of schools, and we offer a variety of pricing options to fit any budget. We understand the importance of providing quality education to students, and we are committed to helping schools achieve their goals through cloud technologies and digital transformation.

Education sector Challenges

Outdated Systems:

Outdated phone systems can be a major headache for schools. They’re expensive to maintain, have limited features, and can be difficult to use. This can lead to communication problems between staff, students, and parents, which can impact the quality of education. Airacom is helping schools to overcome these challenges by offering cloud-based phone systems. These systems are easy to use, cost-effective, and offer a wide range of features, including call routing, conferencing, and mobile access.

Budget Cuts:

Budget cuts have forced many schools to reduce their spending on IT and telecom services, including phone systems. This can lead to outdated and ineffective systems that do not meet the needs of staff, students, and parents. Airacom’s cloud-based phone systems are a cost-effective solution for schools. They offer advanced features and functionality without requiring large capital expenditures. This means that schools can reduce costs and still have access to the latest technology.

Teacher Shortages:

Unprecedented deficits in school budgets are forcing head teachers to make cuts to teaching staff. This impacts schools’ ability to provide quality education and services to students. With fewer teachers available, schools need to be more efficient in their communication and collaboration. Airacom’s Microsoft Teams Direct Routing services can help schools to improve communication and collaboration. These services integrate with existing phone systems and provide advanced features like conferencing, messaging, and video collaboration

Security Issues:

Schools face physical and cyber security challenges, with student safety being the top priority. Airacom is helping schools address these challenges with physical security solutions like ID badge tracking systems that offer real-time location tracking and panic alarms. For cyber security, Airacom offers mobile threat defence (MTD) services that protect school-issued mobile devices from cyber threats like malware and phishing attacks. With MTD, schools can ensure student and staff data is safe while maintaining compliance with data protection regulations.

school communications

Airacom’s push to talk is less expensive to operate and maintain vs two way radios

Many schools are switching from traditional two-way radios to Airacom’s Push to Talk (PTT) technology to reduce costs and improve communication. With cellular and WiFi connectivity, Airacom’s PTT solution is less expensive to operate and maintain than traditional radios, which require separate licenses, infrastructure, and maintenance.

Airacom’s PTT removes these challenges and costs and also offers greater flexibility, scalability, and redundancy, ensuring that communication is always available when needed. Talk to our team about our special plans and discounts in place for schools which have been locked in for up to five years, ensuring your communication needs are met while also saving your school money.
