How will this be of benefit to schools?
CloudHappi is ideal for schools who want to develop their IT systems and storage solutions. It was developed by a Governor who was frustrated by the procurement systems around IT, and so it was designed with schools in mind.
CloudHappi has developed a procurement system that is clear and transparent, which does not affect your capital expenditure and is based on number of children in the school.
CloudHappi will save your school time and money.
If your school wants to improve IT Solutions for your school, modernise IT equipment and reduce costs along the way, CloudHappi could be your perfect answer.
