Aston University was seeking to provide workstation-grade laptop devices
to their first-year Computer Science students to provide a consistency of
experience for all students on the technology-intensive courses and to
provide the flexibility to continue their studies through any disruptions
They were looking to take advantage of the agreements in place and
identified Getech as an ideal partner to assist them with the organisation
and physical distribution of over 400 devices to students during term time,
working around their study timetables.
Getech, in partnership with Lenovo, identified the ThinkPad P15v as an
the ideal combination of portability and performance. Lenovo also upgraded the
warranty to provide Premier Warranty Support including Microsoft Windows
support, ensuring that every student can obtain support 24×7 and minimise
any problems impacting their studies.
This rollout has proven to be so successfully received, that they are looking
to expand the provision to cover a larger number of students and on other
courses going forward.
Reflecting on the event, Getech Account Manager Michael Kelly said, “I
was delighted to be able to assist the University in handing out these
laptops. Getech greatly appreciate the support that we received from the
University on both days, which we feel contributed to making the event a
resounding success. From our interactions with students on both days, I
was left with the impression that it was well-received by them too.”
