Our Bett 2017 Reflection

Our Bett 2017 Reflection

on Jan 31, 2017

Now that Bett 2017 is sadly over, we can only look at the highlights of our very first year at the world’s leading education show! We had a great time, we loved meeting lots of new schools and we were over the moon with how many Agile schools stopped by our stand to say hello! We saw all the Microsoft, Google, Apple innovations while we were at the show, and it is most definitely an exciting time for technology in Education. Schools have the opportunity to step into a new world with all the latest tech products and solutions, and IT has never been more critical to every aspect of a school’s environment… And Agile ICT will most certainly be at the forefront of this, helping schools to maximise their IT resources! Bett was an amazing week for us and it is just the start of what is to come from us in 2017!! Here you will see photos from over the 4 days and as you can see, it was a lot of fun, a lot of orange and a successful week! Thank you once more to all of those who came to visit us! We had a great first Bett show!                  ...

Agile Panthers Website Launch!

Agile Panthers Website Launch!

on Nov 1, 2016

Back in July 2016, Agile ICT proudly began to sponsor the Agile Panthers, who are competing in the First Lego League (FLL)! Since then, we have met up with the team and their coach, Liz Stoneham to help with the preparations for the journey ahead. To support Liz and the enthusiastic team of ‘panthers’, we have designed a set of team shirts that includes their ferocious Panther logo, roaring across the front. We have also been working closely with Liz on a fantastic new website for the team and all their supporters! The website offers a host of features, including two new blogs: the first is named the Panthers Portal for collaboration and communication between the team. The second is a public blog, called “What we’re up to”, this is for everyone else to follow the team’s progress and see how they are getting on in their workshop/training sessions. We recognised that FLL was a great way to encourage children to learn, and that Lego can be used to educate children about programming, electronics, and real life challenges. This year’s theme is ‘Animal Allies’ which has a range of challenges for the team’s robot to complete. Liz first ran a FLL team in 2015, and didn’t know what to expect, however she told us that it was incredible and an amazing experience, and we can really see why! To show your support to the Agile Panthers, go have a look at their brand new website and see how they are getting on so far! Be sure to keep checking the site for any updates about what they’re up to and you can also follow the team’s blog posts about the challenges they face in the FLL competition! Go go go Agile Panthers Please visit the Agile Panthers’ website...

A reminder of the importance of checking your suppliers’ financial strength!

A reminder of the importance of checking your suppliers’ financial strength!

on Jun 6, 2016

Many of you may have heard that SMART’s UK distributor, Steljes, has gone out of business this week and is now in Administration. We would like to reassure all of our schools that use SMART products that this does not affect your continued use of your SMART products. Any warranties will remain valid and we are able to support you with any issues you may experience with your SMART products. SMART themselves are still trading successfully and you can still safely buy their products. Steljes has been trading for 29 years but suffered a drop in sales in May which tipped it over the edge and Administrators were called in. This acts as a timely reminder of the critical importance of the financial strength of your suppliers and why this should be a very important factor in deciding who you entrust with your ICT services. It is very easy to assess the financial strength of suppliers as the information required is freely available from the Government’s Companies House website. We have prepared our free guidehttp://www.agileict.co.uk/checkyoursuppliers/ to help you interpret what the numbers mean. You can of course rest assured that Agile ICT is very strong financially, unlike our competitors, and be confident that you will never be left in the lurch by Agile ICT. If you do have any questions about your SMART products or anything else, please pop us an email sales@agileict.co.uk or give us a call 01329 801801 and one of the team will be more than happy to...
