Meet the teamOur Sales,Technical and Administration teams
We bring our expertise and years of experience to provide you with outstanding service.
The Sales, Marketing and Training Team
Our energetic Sales, Marketing and Training Team are based in Enfield in the office, but are out on the road a lot of the time, visiting schools and advising on a whole range of products, from a set of iPads to a total IT overhaul. Many of them also volunteer as school governors and with decades of experience (on both sides of the fence), they are very familiar with the complexities of educational IT.
The team also includes Sofia, who used to work for Apple and who now helps manage our marketing, organising all aspects of the website, e-shots and events; and Julian, who also worked for Apple and is now a much sought-after trainer. Julian delivers half day, full day and twilight training sessions around the country on making the most of IT across the curriculum. Schools often spend considerable amounts of money on equipment, and Toucan Computing believes that effective training is key to its productive use.
The Technical Team
The Technical Team: Our technical gurus each spend some time in schools on a variety of projects such as working on new installations, setting up wi-fi and problem solving. While they’re there, they can also provide technical advice and training.
They spend the rest of their time in the office, providing telephone and remote support and completing hardware repairs. In many cases, our education partners take out an extensive support agreement, which involves regular visits from our experts. We aim to ensure, wherever possible, that schools see the same technician on each visit. For the last couple of years, we have also employed apprentice technicians, who are based on-site with clients, while continuing their specialist studies.
The Administration Team
Our friendly Administration Team cover all aspects of finance, HR and delivery enquiries.
I have every confidence to say that working with Toucan and Julian everything is possible. It's really pleasing to see how with you guys (all of Toucan) our school is turning into a completely different technology led school. Well done to everyone.
Gareth did a fantastic job. We were both very impressed with what he did which has got us where we need to be with our iPads.
Thanks again for your years of continued support and expert advice, it means a lot to us that we can always trust on you to provide nothing less than the best!. You always go the extra mile and I appreciate that.
Can I just say a big thank you to Gareth for the work he undertook at this week and the assistance he gave to our engineer Antony. Antony had nothing but good words to say about Gareth, his professionalism, work ethic and ability to train on the job. Antony feels the install was a great success and is now much more confident in managing this solution for the school going forward.
I meant to email you today to say how happy I was with Andrew's support on Monday. Everything I asked for was possible and completed. There was no moan, no fuss, no impossible thing. Andrew made our training day successful and complete. His patience was tremendous.
Julian was excellent. Staff were really engaged and motivated. We'll book him again!
I have just got back from a very valuable morning at Heronsgate which has been immensely helpful. Thanks very much for facilitating this. Your advice is much appreciated.
