Oliver Gee, Co-Founder of Oakford Technology

Background

Oakford Technology became a limited company in 2006 and are now a leading provider of innovative IT solutions to over 90 schools throughout Wiltshire and a popular choice for remote IT support for schools across the UK.

The Problem

Directors Oliver Gee and Perry Sharples support schools with a comprehensive range of education-focused solutions, and have a clear insight into the problems schools face as education budgets tighten.

With budgets spread thinner than ever before, investing in the right technology approach is increasingly difficult, which ultimately will impact on teaching and learning.

The Solution

Oakford Technology partnered with LDF to help schools overcome the barriers to investing in technology solutions designed to support and enhance teaching and learning.

 

LDF's operating lease helps schools to spread the cost of these key investments over a more manageable term, typically over three years.

The Result

Oakford Technology are thriving. By offering the right technology solutions to schools, tightly linked to how they can support a school's teaching and learning, they continue to win business almost exclusively through positive customer recommendations. 

Growth is now very much on the agenda for Oakford with a move to a new headquarters in their development plan, to give them the facilities to host training and conferences.

Ultimately, through offering flexible finance solutions supported by LDF, Oakford Technology are allowing schools to focus less on budget constraints and more on how best they can support their learners.

What our customers say

We could not have been happier. Banks as usual were a nightmare - they took over six weeks to eventually refuse for vague reasons unexplained. LDF were professional, helpful, friendly, and best of all, fast.
