Specialising in technology and communications for the education sector, we understand the unique requirements faced by Multi Academy Trusts (MATs) when procuring and sustaining their telecoms strategy.
The education sector has recently seen a rapid increase in Multi Academy Trusts in the UK. With the government aiming for all schools to become academies by 2030, the number of schools forming and joining Multi Academy Trusts each year will continue to increase.
However, due to this sudden transition to an Multi Academy Trust focused education system, a high percentage of MATs haven’t yet got round to identifying a coherent telecoms procurement strategy.
Many Multi Academy Trusts, of varying sizes, strive to move towards the centralised telecoms model, which helps to maintain the processes at a trust-wide level in order to enjoy the wide range of benefits provided.
At Tel Group, we have worked with a number of Multi Academy Trusts to provide the latest technology and communication solutions. Tailoring our VoIP Telecoms for Multi Academy Trusts, we are able to provide a complete centralsied service bespoke to the individual needs of your MAT.
A high percentage of MATs have not yet identified a coherent and integrated telecommunication procurement strategy across their schools.
We have developed our VoIP phone systems specifically for Multi Academy Trusts, allowing us to offer the most desirable and efficient features. providing flexibility, control and cost savings across your trust.
It is important to ensure your MAT is positioned in a way that will help improve standards, cut unnecessary costs and transform your infrastructure. At Tel Group, we can help your trust do this by implementing a centralised solution.
Our VoIP phone systems for Multi Academy Trusts offer a wide range of useful and practical features
As experts in the educational sector, we know the safeguarding and legal parameters that schools need to work to.
Whether you’re at the start of your journey as a Trust, or a longstanding Trust looking to make better use of resources, your centralised systems are completely tailored to the efficiencies you are looking for when it comes to telecoms.
The Diocese of Coventry Multi Academy Trust has been working with Tel Group for a couple of years, with many of our schools using them for Telephony. As a Trust we are working towards using them for telephony for all our academies.
Tel Group have been proactive and responsive as well as providing a very competitive deal for our schools.
The service has been excellent.
We switched our school phones over to VOIP with Tel Group this year. They gave us a dedicated account manager who made sure we were kept informed throughout the process and communicated with other parties on our behalf.
The engineers were quick and professional and made sure we were comfortable with the system before they left. Where we have requested changes/help from tech support the response has been fast and helpful.
We would recommend Tel Group to other schools.
Tel Group was awarded the OCL telephony business in 2019, having won a competitive tender against 8 other providers – in all categories they came out on top.
Since then, Tel Group have undertaken audits at a number of OCL academies, providing advice on switching lines and terminating those not required. I have always been impressed with David’s professionalism and resilience and his focus on what is right (and most cost effective) for the client.
I’d be happy to speak with any other Trusts or schools and recommend their services.
We have used Tel Group to provide the phone system in our schools for several years now, and have always been happy with the service we have received.
Prices are competitive. We have recently moved over to a VOIP system which was installed by a professional and friendly engineer on a date to suit.
When we were working remotely during the height of the pandemic, it was easy to transfer calls to our mobiles. Customer services are also great.
Thank you so much to Tel Group for all you have done in our schools. The engineers were really helpful and everyone’s said how lovely they were.
The excitement over new phones has been incredible – I’ve never known such communication between classrooms! I really appreciated your call the following morning to check we’re OK too.
That was a great touch. All in all, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.
