The Challenge

Tyne Coast College is a further education college in the North East with 5 campuses and over 15,000 students.

Econocom has worked with Tyne Coast College for the past few years to strengthen learning and teaching processes with the use of technology.

Following the recent shift to a hybrid work environment, the college needed a way to refresh their IT estate with new laptops whilst keeping their payments level within existing budgets.

Econocom Solution

Econocom’s Technology Refresh Option (TRO) enables a cost effective way to keep the college’s digital estate current, while minimising the time and effort required in financing and maintaining it.

Included in the TRO were all the delivery and warranty costs of the laptops. This provided complete flexibility in the college managing their dynamic ICT portfolio.

The college can upgrade, refresh and dispose of any part of its estate at any time.

"The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a step change in how technology is used within education, a change that we think will persist after the pandemic ends. When we identified a need to upgrade our lecturers IT equipment to meet the challenges of Covid we were able to do so quickly and easily thanks to Econocom."
