Public Sector, specifically Education in all its forms, face many of the same issues with technology as our Enterprise customers. Multiple locations, increasing budgets demands to do more, state and federal compliance issues, a constantly changing user profile and Public accountability all factor into today’s Education Technology landscape. ACP has a proven track record in supporting Education in both K-12 and Higher Ed. and have provided “best in class” solutions for Security, Network Infrastructure, Wireless, Voice, Servers, Storage and desktop infrastructure.
The way teachers teach and develop curriculums is changing right before our eyes. In the past, Districts and teachers selected textbooks in support of their lesson plans. Today and in the future, teachers will select a chapter from several texts and combine it with other content available on the web and will have the flexibility to change or add to their plans as the needs arise. This flexibility demands a strong network infrastructure, secure and capable wireless along with servers and storage to support all that is required. ACP understands the growing needs of our Education customers and partner with world class manufacturers to bring these solutions to market.
