HP takes a partnership led approach to the UK Education Market reflecting the challenges confronting its institutions. All tiers of the sector have seen big changes in recent years with the extension of the academies programme and the introduction of free schools. In higher education competition for students and funding is driving all kinds of initiatives to help universities differentiate themselves. In such a dynamic environment organisations are increasingly recognising the power of collaboration in developing new initiatives and in reducing costs.
Both HP and RivaNET believe that strong partnerships can yield real benefits for the Education sector. Institutions can share investments in new technologies whilst suppliers can co-operate to deliver best of breed solutions. RivaNET is focused on delivering solutions that help improve the learning environment and reduce costs. HP has an especially strong offering in this respect for the higher and further education sectors.
