Specialising in Education Sector

Net Communications, leading providers of technology for business and education, has been selected as a Preferred Partner by HP.  The Preferred Partner status is in recognition for Net Communications’ particular strength in the Educational Sector. 

Marcus McKenna, Head of Channel Sales for HP Ireland says, “We are excited about working in partnership with Net Communications as an Education Value Partner in Ireland. Our partnership is based around HP quality client and server platforms supporting a wide variety of innovative educational tools and services.”

Net Communications is established as a leading provider of IT based solutions to the Education sector. It is this focus, their detailed understanding of the practical  challenges facing primary and secondary education and their determination to utilise the best available IT hardware and software to provide enhanced educational content, tools and services to schools throughout Ireland that have made them our Preferred Partner.”

Net Communications offers full IT turnkey solutions to both Business and Education sectors. It is also integrated into the Procurement Framework set up the Department of Education.  The Procurement Framework is newly introduced and assists schools to buy quality products and services at a competitive price.  It simplifies the purchasing processes and presents only suppliers that have been through the rigorous vetting process operated by the Department.

Paul Roche, managing director of Net Communications is very happy with the recognition.  ‘We have worked extensively with Primary, Secondary and Third Level institutions across the country developing projects and have a very good understanding of what is needed,” he explains.  “We advise schools on the right ICT investments for their particular needs. We help them make informed choices.”

Roche has an advantage on most IT advisers as his early career was as a teacher for more than ten years.  Following that, he was involved for many years in teacher in-service training for University of Limerick and Marino Institute of Education. Roche’s extensive background in education gives Net Communications an insider’s view of the ICT needs of Irish classrooms, a clear advantage over competitors. The company prides itself on understanding Education and its ICT requirements better than most companies.

“Obtaining the Preferred Partnership status with HP is a tremendous feather in our cap and will enable us to better support our educational customers,” he says.
