Gillian Mathews | Network Manager
As Network Manager at Reeds School I was asked to devise a scheme to supply members of staff with laptops. This scheme has a number of objectives. The first was improving the levels of computer literacy within the staff, by ensuring that each member of staff has computer access to enable them to hone their skills. The second was to transfer more of administration carried out by staff into computer based formats and the third was to encourage the use of information technology in delivering the curriculum.
I decided to look at the Rock Tablet T200 as it was a feature rich laptop with high specifications supplied at a very reasonable cost. I also found the 3 year warrantee very reassuring.
When I contacted Rock Direct I found the staff very helpful. They were able to advise me about the upgrades which I wanted to make to the basic specification and to loan me a trial machine for a few days to ensure that it was compatible with my existing network setup. I was very impressed with the build quality and found that it joined my RM Connect 3 network with no problems.
The ordering process was efficient and the laptops were delivered according to schedule. The staff have been very positive about the laptop deployment and have expressed a high level of satisfaction with the scheme.
