NGC Networks builds education client portfolio

Business communications specialist NGC Networks has added to its growing number of education clients with work for an academy in the North East.

The Yorkshire-based company provides business telecommunications and internet connectivity solutions to companies across the North of England.

NGC Networks has completed a project for Academy 360 in Sunderland, installing a new Avaya based telephony solution.

NGC works with a number of large academy trusts in the education sector including Outwood Grange Academies Trust, based in Wakefield, which is moving through a phased replacement programme of legacy telephone systems at each of its 12 schools as they come up for renewal.

NGC is implementing the new solution at each of the sites which include the trust’s main school and headquarters, Outwood Grange Academy. The move will improve communication between the academies and realise cost savings.

NGC is also delivering a programme of projects for Gorse Academies Trust which includes telephony solutions at the new Ruth Gorse Academy which has recently moved to state of the art facilities in the centre of Leeds.

NGC Networks Director Dean Harrop said:

“Academies and other organisations in the education sector are very much businesses and need to ensure their communications are fit for purpose especially where they are operating across a number of school sites. Our business telephony and internet connectivity solutions are providing real benefits in the efficient management of schools across Yorkshire and the North East.”

The company’s expanding group of clients includes Bradford-based mail order business Freeman Grattan Holdings, The Family Fund in York, Timpson, Superbrea
