Snelling Business Systems is delighted to announce that it has been appointed as the Audio Visual supplier for the University of Westminster.
Founded as Britain’s first polytechnic in 1838, it gained university status in 1992 and has since developed into a respected university, which is closely involved in business, professional and academic life within London, as well as overseas. The University of Westminster has a strong and historic commitment to promoting equality and embracing diversity, and prides itself on providing a vibrant learning environment, with a focus on fostering innovation and creativity for its 22,000 students.
Part of this passion is a commitment to deliver outstanding teaching facilities, for which Snelling Business Systems has been appointed to deliver all AV requirements during a five year framework. The agreement will see Snelling deliver the technology updates for approximately 350 AV-enabled teaching spaces. The project will be managed by leading consultants, Hewshott International who were responsible for developing the room standardization, and will comprise standard, enhanced, specialist and custom spaces, combined with the implementation and on-going development of a touch panel interface, centralised monitoring and management system and estate wide service and maintenance, with dedicated on-site Snelling presence.
Steve Royans, Business Development Manager, said:
“As part of the tender process for this high-value, long-term contract, we were required to demonstrate our ability to deliver a leading edge solution that offers innovation, flexibility and flair for design, as well as establish a product supply and integration service that provides the end users with an optimum combination of quality, service level and cost. We believe that our unique approach to this contract perfectly meets the university’s requirements.”
There is no doubt 2015 has been a very good year marked by robust year-on-year business growth and several new clients. A sizeable proportion of this growth has come from Higher Education, and renewing our Gold Sponsorship for the SCHOMS 2016 Annual Conference marks our on-going commitment to continue working with our existing and new clients within the Higher Education space.
In 2016, SCHOMS Annual Conference will be bigger than ever before with over 40 UK HEIs. Attendees of the conference usually range from Directors and Heads of Service to Operational Mangers. The group is comprised of some of the UK’s most influential buyers in the AV and IT Higher Education Sector, who are also involved in proactively influencing innovation and change in their own institutions. For the first time,members of other professional bodies have also been invited to attend the exhibition, such as AUDE, UCISA and SCONUL.
The Exhibition is a highly valued part of the Annual Conference and is designed to achieve a sensible ratio of buyers and suppliers to allow constructive conversations, exchanges and networking to take place.
We are very keen and looking forward to the SCHOMS Annual Conference and hope to see you there. We will be sharing updates about our exhibits closer to the date.
