To Aitken, ensuring they have up-to-date technology that can deliver current/modern teaching outcomes is important. 

The driver for this project was to ensure Aitken has the best technology in place that can support its students and teachers.

Aitken engaged with Powernet’s IT Project team to replace their networking equipment, server infrastructure, and wireless setup. 

The school is a large site, 18+ hectares, and has many medium and small buildings across it. This project has ensured that wifi is accessible across the entire site, including inside the school’s farmhouse.

The new setup has worked seamlessly from the get-go,” says Pedersen. 

The Results

We have current, up-to-date technology that will support us through delivering the best education experience to our students and working environment for our team. 

Historically we had a disconnect between IT and the wider team, people were hesitant to go to IT for help. Since having Powernet onboard, everyone loves talking to IT. No matter how big or small the issue, having Powernet onsite has made a big difference to IT support service levels.

Powernet has been running projects for Aitken for a long time. Their project team is awesome, they do what they say they will do and keep things running on track.

Our school is operational 365 days a year and Powernet is with us for every one of those days, no matter what happens,” says Pedersen.
