IT Support for Schools - New case study for the education sector now available
Posted: 05 Feb 2010
Doherty Associates has been providing IT support for schools and those in the education sector since 2002. We support a range of educational institutions in both the private and state sectors, across London and the Home Counties.
The Gladys Aylward School in Enfield has a third line support contract in place, which enables the School’s Network Manager to telephone the Doherty Associates helpdesk whenever the IT department needs support. Systems engineers and consultants at Doherty Associates have also managed and conducted a range of projects including Altiris implementations, server virtualisation and the design and set up of a state of the art VLE.

All Doherty’s engineers are CRB checked and have experience working for schools and other businesses, onsite and remotely. We offer a range of tailored IT support packages to schools with or without IT departments at their premises, including:
· PC and server installations
· Network monitoring
· Email monitoring
· Web monitoring
· Disaster recovery planning
· Security audits
· Server virtualisation
· Installations of Altiris software to simplify device management and deployment
· Installations of virtual learning environments
We understand that requirements vary between schools and can tailor our support services to meet budgets. With the highest level of accreditations from partners including Microsoft and Altiris, we are able to negotiate best pricing on hardware from the fullest range of manufacturers, as well as educational discounts on software. We are happy to help just with the supply of the hardware and software resources needed, or with installations too.
Doherty Associates has built customisable virtual learning environments for a number of schools. Our VLEs utilise Microsoft’s SharePoint system, which enables staff and students to access the schools’ learning resources, as well as student data where appropriate. Doherty Associates adapts each VLE to suit the unique requirements of a school, ensuring that learning objectives are met and thereby breaking the “one size fits all” mould of traditional VLE systems.
