IT’s About Excellence in Learning
At Viglen, we believe passionately in promoting excellence in learning through the latest ICT. For schools, we have assembled a unique array of innovative, tailored products and support, designed specifically around schools budgetary and space constraints.
Modern, forward-thinking schools have rushed to embrace the almost limitless horizons opened-up by today’s content-rich learning technology with fast, high-bandwidth networks and powerful processors. Viglen is playing a leading role in bringing learning to life, with the definitive package of solutions and service.
At Viglen, IT’s personal. Working in partnership with schools and LEAs, we are pioneering to bring ICT directly to the desks of pupils across the UK.
Specialising in delivering the latest wireless networks to set teaching and learning free, Viglen supports education with a raft of initiatives, by pushing the boundaries of wireless technology and offering a range of cost-effective notebook PCs, securely lockable in portable trolleys.
Viglen’s dedication to wireless mobility and portability doesn’t stop with its Notebook range — it is committed to providing the students of today with the facilities to learn without walls. Viglen has also developed a range of learning platforms including it’s learning, a highly intuitive and easy to use virtual learning platform possessing full Becta Framework accreditation.
As ICT now touches every aspect of the curriculum, Viglen’s high-level software partnerships with respected brands including Granada Learning and Microsoft, together with its in-house licensing expertise, make it the perfect partner of smaller schools. Viglen is fully Curriculum Online accredited; the supplier of choice for schools wishing to invest in the most diverse array of compelling curricular software.
Our families of powerful desktops PCs — Viglen’s Genie and Omnino ranges — some designed in close collaboration with UK-based ICT Co-ordinators, will suit every budget, backed by the processing muscle of the Vigstor series of storage options which are able to soak-up much of the file storage capacity required by the latest media-rich applications.
Viglen supports it all, with a sophisticated array of curriculum delivery tools, offering a new learning gateway to seamlessly link home, class and any school network. Now, just about every space can be a learning place.
When ICT network management time or expertise is limited, Viglen offers the complete suite of user-friendly support services — from telephone-based or remote access advice and consultancy to full Managed Services provision. At Viglen, friendly help and support is only a phone call away.
Mission and Strategic Partnerships
It is our objective to offer ICT excellence in order to deliver measurable improvements to the learning process and drive down the total cost of ownership.
To achieve this we have sought partnerships with organisations of a similar vision and level of expertise: we are one of a select few Microsoft EdLARs, MCSPs and OEMs. In addition we are key education partners with Intel, Cisco, 3Com, Granada Learning, intY and Easynet.
Some 9,000 schools use Viglen’s managed services and products across the UK and we possess key partnerships with in excess of 25 LAs in the UK such as Knowsley, Derby, Wigan, Manchester, Oxfordshire, Wandsworth and Surrey.
