We specialise in technology leasing and work with our customers to get the most out of their ICT budgets. We enable customers to get the technology, software, installation, training and services they need, when they need it. Leasing allows you to pay for technology as you use it and then upgrade when your needs change. This also avoids tying up valuable capital in rapidly depreciating assets. Our flexible terms ensure all contracts can be tailored to suit individual requirements, and with our transparent approach, customers remain fully informed all the time.


We work with schools around the world, designing and creating furniture so children can thrive in the most inspiring learning spaces imaginable.
