Education is a potentially very lucrative vertical for dealers right now. With more and more resellers aiming their business supplies ranges towards the school and sector, it’s vital that you understand the needs of this market in order to offer the services which suit best. Schools, colleges and universities are always trying to cut costs and improve services at the same time, and dealers can help in this area by demonstrating the benefits of Fujitsu scanners in both administrative offices and in the classroom.
Fujitsu is helping schools across the country embrace technology not only by boosting digital skills for pupils, but by improving the back-office systems of the schools themselves, helping them stay up-to-date with IT and embracing digital transformation.
Fujitsu’s scanning solutions help schools to create enhanced collaboration, boost productivity and address GDPR compliance in an atmosphere where data security is paramount. School staff at all levels are very time-poor, and end up wasting too much of their working day completing administrative tasks; fast, efficient capture of paperwork and subsequent seamless distribution of items such as permission slips, HR issues and catering requests can save huge amounts of time for them.
Additionally, scanners can give young children a strong foundation for their knowledge of technology, as well as giving teachers and parents a platform to build on. It is key to bridge the expectation gap between how children are consuming and learning at home and at school – and vice versa – so as to avoid disruptive behaviour.
Scanning also has the benefit of capturing children’s work in a permanent way, meaning that teachers are able to track the way their work progresses and evolves. Additionally, digital files are a more convenient way for parents to see and treasure their child’s work, and some schools are even recouping the costs of their scanning technology by charging parents for this service.
