Working with your MAT

We are recognised for creating outstanding bespoke ICT solutions for Multi-Academy Trusts.

Multi-Academy Trusts exist to advance education in their group of schools. This approach provides a host of benefits to individual schools as they share and implement the latest best practice.

Virtue Technologies are recognised as innovators in our industry. We work hard to ensure that educational outcomes are complemented, not driven, by technology. We work with each trust to understand all of the challenges and issues they face and create practical, bespoke Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions.  

The services we offer support the evolving ICT requirements across all of the establishments in the trust, providing consistent services and tools for increased collaboration whilst also reducing costs.

The benefits of this joined-up approach include:

  • All users have the same experience regardless of location
  • Barriers to collaboration are removed
  • Improved disaster recovery
  • Ability to manage a scaled user base over multiple sites
  • Centralised data gathering and reporting
  • Cost savings

Private Wide Area Network (PWAN) 

Virtue Technologies can keep all of the individual schools in your trust connected, with our reliable Private Wide Area Network.

Our PWAN turns internet connections into true private circuits without the use of complicated VPNs.

We do this by building a dedicated private core network for a school. The whole network is then protected by a dedicated firewall which we customise to each school’s specific requirements.

A PWAN provides a collection of schools such as a secondary and its associated feeder primary schools, with a private network with absolute security.

As our PWAN has been designed to work across all of their connectivity solutions, we’re able to connect a primary school with a high-speed Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC) connection to a secondary school with a leased line.

Some of the nice words our customers say about their experience

Shahzeab was prompt at replying to my query, personable when helping at the printer itself and assured me that he could find a solution. He sent a follow up email and also checked in to see if things were working yet when he passed me in the corridor. Great service!

Dragos is an extremely hard-working, attentive and all-round brilliant support agent. I could not ask for more. Dragos solved our case with high level proficiency, professionality, and was pro-active enough to take the software to his testing lab and test firewall rules for us, as to not interrupt our daily workflow. Virtue Technologies and Dragos, I cannot express my appreciation enough – thank you!

For such a young man, Sam presented himself in such a polite and professional manner. His confidence around his knowledge and skillset was second to none, and his conversation was engaging. It was pleasant to come across such a motivated and enthusiastic young character.

I wanted to say thanks to Paul for all the work that he did in terms of the report. I honestly don’t know what would have happened without his input! It is very much appreciated. Many thanks again.

Excellent support from Myles. Above and beyond what I was hoping. Investigated the issues, and implemented the solution and then took time to explain and show me what had been implemented.

Paul setup InTune to save us time and lay the foundations so we have a recommended configuration to build upon, and be able to setup new surface tablets with a cloud first approach. I really enjoyed working with Paul on this and his knowledge and experience in this area was excellent.

The quality of the quotes and the process Virtue have for order confirmations (along with the speed at which they are generated) was significantly better than all the other businesses we dealt with. Virtue made it really easy for us.

Patricia is a great asset to Team Virtue. Her quick responses to any question posed are what customers need and, if she’s not able to answer, she always put us at ease by forwarding our query elsewhere. Requests for quotes are quick and detailed, and it’s great to know there’s a friendly voice/email at the other end if ever we need it.

Virtue Technologies actually understand what goes on in schools, it’s not all about a computer on a desk, it’s about the experience for the students. I think we share that with Virtue.
