ComputerCorp: Queensland education a goldmine

Government spending and notebook rollouts require infrastructure upgrades, which is great news for integrator partners

The Queensland education market is proving lucrative, with schools taking advantage of Government spending and looking to integrators for a variety of technology rollouts.

Fresh from winning an teachers notebook rollout tender with the Queensland Department of Education and Training, ComputerCorp is busy investigating a number of opportunities with individual schools.

ComputerCorp sales manager, David Wain, said one key area was pressure on schools to run a one-to-one notebook program for students.

“Schools are looking for solution providers to address this, in terms of logistics and capabilities, so we’ve developed a managed education environment and a managed one to one notebook program,” Wain said.

“So far we’ve had 20 schools sign on for the notebook program, and rolled out the managed environment to around 60 schools.

“We’ve also found that a lot of schools are demanding far more robust wireless solutions to cope with the increased number of notebooks on the school network, so we’ve done a lot of those installations.”

ComputerCorp is also expecting to gain incremental business as a result of its win with the Queensland Department of Education and Training, and sees opportunities in school datacentre infrastructure.

“We enjoy a close relationship with the Department, and being able to offer solutions to its challenges around logistics and rollout management has helped us get over the line with tender wins,” Wain said.

In March, ComputerCorp announced plans to merge with S Central and Synergy Plus which has led to the announcement that ComputerCorp CEO, Robin Rindel, would leave the organisation.
