Daisyfield Primary School
Daisyfield Primary school was opened in 1971. They are a community primary school which also incorporates a nursery school. There has been much building work completed over recent years in order to re-develop the school, with new classrooms added and a super new garden in their EYFS area.
Daisyfield School were already using the services of Rapid IT’s sister company, LCWS Recycling Ltd, for the free disposal of redundant computer and electrical equipment.
Savings Of £50,000
After initial discussions with the school an introduction to Rapid IT was arranged to see if Rapid could assist the school in a requirement they had to purchase 30 new laptops on a very limited budget of 10k. The school were also using 60 laptops that were not performing well in the classroom due to poor battery lifespan and aging hard drives. However no additional funds were available to replace these as well.
Rapid IT suggested a solution that allowed the school to purchase 30 high spec major brand remanufactured laptops as well as extending the life of the 60 aging laptops by installing them with new solid state hard drives and brand new high capacity batteries. This was all achieved within budget.
If the school chose to purchase 90 new laptops of a similar spec, it would have cost the school in excess of £60,000.
The school was impressed with how Rapid IT managed to achieve the introduction of so many laptops into school for use by the pupils on a very limited budget.
