Are you still using Windows 7?

After January 14th, 2020, Windows 7 will come to its End of Support and therefore no further security fixes or vulnerability patches will be made available for PCs running Windows 7, leaving systems and networks at risk.

As recommended by Microsoft themselves, schools who are still using Windows 7 should consider upgrading to Windows 10 – Microsoft’s latest, most powerful and secure operating system, which offers an array of features fit for all types of educational establishments.

The benefits of Windows 10:

Intelligent security – Protecting against threats and attacks.

Simplified updates – Monthly updates guarantees the latest features and protection.

Flexible management – On-premises or cloud-based device management.

Enhanced productivity – Modern tools and features to help with collaboration and efficiency.

Simplicity and familiarity – Reflecting the Windows 7 operating system people know and love.

Whether you are upgrading an existing device, buying a new one, or just after some advice, we have the help you need. Click here to get in touch!

EES (also known as OVS-ES) is a simple way to manage Microsoft licenses in school and covers all software used in schools, such as Microsoft Windows, Office, Servers and Exchange. This even includes client access licenses which many schools aren’t even aware they need.

Savings for schools with a large number of devices

Licenses are counted on a per-staff basis and not per-computer.  This usually provides vast savings for schools, especially those rolling out new hardware on a continual basis.The best part is that only staff members that use computers on a regular basis need to be included in the staff count so cooks, cleaners etc don’t count towards your FTE number for the purposes of licensing.

Access to latest software (or downgrade if you like!)

You are automatically licensed to run the latest version of the software meaning you are always up to date with Microsoft Windows, Office etc.  Alternatively, if you prefer older versions of Microsoft software, you’re equally allowed to downgrade.

School Staff working at home

EES includes licenses for teachers working from home on their own devices as long as they use them for work (which most teachers do anyway nowadays!)
