Providing a real alternative to schools in Hampshire and Dorset with great value, fast and trusted IT support services.
Nearly twenty years ago, I was a governor in a Primary School in the Southampton area. We had no choice over our school IT support provider back then, even though we were unhappy with their level of service. Logging calls was laborious and frustrating due to long on-hold times and it was hard to build up any kind of relationship due to changing personnel. I was working as an IT manager for a leading ERP company at the time and I felt that the education sector deserved a better standard of support.
I knew I could do a better job so I launched my new company - Coretek Ltd - to provide an alternative support experience with a personal, friendly level of service and fast solutions to IT problems.
Two decades on we have grown from supporting the network of this single school to providing a portfolio of IT services to schools throughout Hampshire and Dorset.
A few things that make us unique are that each of our schools have a dedicated technician so you will get the same familiar face each visit. In addition, your customer relationship manager will meet with you regularly to ensure our service remains consistently high and to help you plan and implement your IT vision. Finally, we offer unlimited remote support so you can contact us as often as you like without the worry of additional cost.
Our mission is to ensure that schools across the south have access to fast, friendly support and are empowered to use ICT in the way that suits them best.
Will your school be our next success story?
Director, Coretek Group
We are proud to offer a complete range of school support services. From friendly managed ICT support services, training, to the latest in ICT solutions such as Cloud Computing.
Wireless, computers, servers, networking, AV or software. If you want it, we can advise, install and support it. We also track all of your hardware and software assets so maybe…just maybe…you can finally throw out those Windows 3.1 license keys.
Our school ICT support services arose from the experiences of staff who had previously worked within primary schools and understand what is needed from the school‘s perspective. As a result we believe our service is one of the most accessible, flexible and individual ICT support services on offer. Our philosophy is to continually research and offer the latest in ICT technology to provide the best experience for schools.
We are the first place you can come to for support in any aspect of educational ICT.
We don’t like to use the word "customer" as we see our school clients more like partners or even friends.
Coretek support a number of schools throughout Hampshire and Dorset. These range in size from local primary schools, right up to large secondary schools with 400+ pupils.
Unlike some of our competitors, Coretek Ltd started life working in schools over a decade ago and we have been providing great ICT services ever since.
