KRCS Managed Service for Schools
                                      At KRCS we recognise that even though Apple computers are easy to maintain, you will need
                                      support and hardware repairs from time to time. Plus we know that you don’t always have
                                      resource or technical expertise to look at those problems.
                                      The KRCS Managed Service for Schools includes five call outs per year to on-site incidents.
                                      We define a single incident as a new problem requiring an on-site engineer, dealt with until

    Top 5 iPad apps
    As well as the built-in software provided by Apple, iPads and iPods have access
    to a wealth of software from the App Store.
    Because they work on mobile devices, apps enable learning both inside and
    outside the classroom. From maths games to vocabulary flash cards to anatomy
    visualisers, there’s an app for every subject and every level of instruction — from
    preschool to higher education.

 “I have a set of 14 Mac’s purchased from KRCS over a number years. They offer not only competitive prices but advice
 you can trust and rely upon on. Whenever I have had a technical query (for example advice on memory) I received a swift
 response and nothing has ever been too much trouble. Large Items have always been delivered to the school in person and I
 have even had e-mails whilst on holiday letting me know when deliveries have been made in my absence. In the modern age of
 automated e-mails it’s refreshing to find a company that still has the personal touch”
 Stewart Gardner, Cardinal Wiseman Catholic Technology College Birmingham

“Over the past 9 years we have supported Nottingham city schools in developing their use of ICT across the curriculum.
Although we use a mixed economy of both Mac and PC platforms to cover a broad range of projects, the intuitive interface
and superb media handling of the Mac enables a greater degree of creativity in the classroom.....Students are therefore more
able to progress seamlessly to industry-standard applications and creativity is placed at the core of all learning activities.”
