Our financial sustainability solutions

Subscription model

We can provide finance and leasing options for an assortment of products and services, either for the entire lifetime of the solution or for a specific period. We work with CHG-Meridian to buy and distribute your devices, allowing you to hire the devices and pay a fixed rental fee over a period of two or three years.

At the end of the contract, you can opt to renew your subscription, at which point we’ll recover the devices and replace them with the latest model. It all means your IT staff and teachers will have more time to focus on their other duties, saving you time and money in the long run.


A subscription model gives you everything you could need, including:


All your devices ready to use right out the box, complete with WiFi, web filter settings and apps installed, and restrictions set to your your specifications.


Devices, charging stations, software, and a management service to monitor and configure devices and install apps across each iPad.


A secure and easy to use purchasing portal.


Extended warranties, with the option to choose to insure devices against theft and accidental damage.


CPD training from our Apple Education Trainers, which is the highest level of classroom-focused training available for iPad.

Compliant operating lease

There are lots of benefits to leasing over purchasing, primarily helping to make your technology deployment cost-effective, and best of all, most equipment can be leased. While strict laws govern leasing, you can rest assured that we’re 100% compliant and work closely with our finance partners to help you put together a leasing plan and fully understand all the rules and restrictions.

Parental contribution schemes

Once schools begin to notice the impact learning devices like iPad have on students, they often start to think about a 1:1 (one device per user) iPad deployment. A popular way to fund such a huge deployment is by setting up a parental contribution scheme whereby parents were more than happy to fund an iPad for their child once the educational benefits had been proved. See how schools are benefiting from parental contribution schemes in our 1:1 iPad Impact Study.
