Maximising your IT budget

Sync work directly with Apple Financial Services to help schools maximise their budgets. Utilising its subscription model, Sync can save schools up to 30% of the cost of their new IT, whilst also spreading the cost of their tech across two or three years.

Where schools also have existing IT equipment that they would like to upgrade or retire, our technology buyback service can help them to release any equity tied to their old technology, further helping to maximise the school’s technology budget.
