Posted on: 3rd Mar 2016 by: ANME

I’m happy to announce that Groupcall is now one of the Silver sponsors of the ANME, and I’m really looking forward to working with them, and them sharing their knowledge and expertise in various areas with the members. Groupcall have a great reputation in the education community, and offer various services. As well as their services to schools, they offer the Child Rescue Alert service for free, and have a new free service due to be released soon called FamilyFirst.

They’ll be offering free trials and early adapter access to their flagship products, and will be promoting the ANME in various ways to help us grow too!

Here’s the announcement Groupcall have made:

  • A fantastic online resource of like-minded professionals that you can use to bounce ideas off, chat things through, get advice from. Invaluable.

  • The ANME is a priceless resource for anyone working in an IT support role in the education sector. The online forum is lively and informative and the regular meetings provide insight into new products and valuable networking opportunities with peers from other establishments. I've lost count of the number of valuable conversations and helpful tips that I've had since becoming a member. If you've not been to a meeting before then try to attend the next one in your area, you won't be disappointed.

    Dave Leonard, ANME Ambassador and ICT Manager at Matthew Moss High School

  • The ANME has been a great resource when you're a lone IT manager, now you have friends going through the same obstacles as you, with plenty of advice and guidance.

  • Being part of the ANME is like being part of a large corporate IT department, there's always someone you can ask for advice

  • ANME is like having a team of IT experts at my fingertips. It helps me keep up to date with the latest trends in IT education.
    Rick and the ANME members have always helped when I've needed extra guidance to make great IT decisions

    Clifford Fernandes, ANME Member & IT Manager at Claremont High School

  • I attended my first ANME regional meeting recently which was great. It was Informative, relevant and useful! Unlike some meetings I attend where you get one or two useful nuggets of information, but other bits have been added to the agenda as fillers. Glad to be a member of this group of like-minded individuals.
