NEW STARTERS

AND LEAVERS Please send us a list of all staff and pupils leaving at the end of this term so that we can disable or delete their information.

We will also need a list of new staff and pupils joining in September so that we can set up their new login information. Please ensure their full name is included. This complies with the new GDPR data retention policy in order to protect your data. It is especially important if you are using Cloud based email solutions such as Office365. Please send this information to support@concerouk.com.

MICROSOFT

DON’T

Just to make you aware that when you go back to school in September you might get an alert on your laptop saying that your Microsoft Licence has expired. Do not panic! Just restart your laptop two to three times and it will reactivate the licence. For those of you not licensed you will have received notification of the importance of renewal. Please get in touch ASAP as this may affect the operational use of your devices.

If you are using IT equipment in school over the summer holiday and notice any devices not working properly please contact the Support Desk team. We will assign a technician to resolve the issue speedily rather than waiting until the first day back of the new term.

LICENCE F O R G E T

SIMS

SUPPORT Before you go away on your summer holidays, please can you contact your SIMS provider to find out when your update is due. While you are away enjoying the sunshine, we can liaise with your provider to make sure all updates are completed before September which will significantly minimise any disruption for your return back to school. Please email our support desk at support@concerouk.com and let us know your name, school, SIMS provider, scheduled date and enjoy your holiday with the peace of mind that your IT support is being taken care of.

One of our biggest category of calls in the first couple of weeks of September is to reset passwords, Bitlocker codes and remind people of their email addresses. Please ensure that you store these in a safe place for next term.

BUILDING WORK QUOTES This is a very busy time of year for our sales department and education service providers so please be mindful if you are placing an order that there might be possible delays due to the increase of orders. We recommend the sooner you can place your order, the better.

WITHIN SCHOOLS Our Support Desk team will be contacting all of our schools before you break up for summer to see when we can gain access for any essential maintenance work that needs to be undertaken. At this point could you please make us aware of any building works or moving of IT equipment from one room to another as this can have an impact on the smooth running of your IT activities.


CONCERO 10 YEAR

ANNIVERSARY

On Friday 22nd June Concero celebrated 10 successful years in business with an unmissable event with over 300 guests. Our fabulous party was held at Grand Station in Wolverhampton City Centre, which is an amazing venue built at the old low-level station in Sun St. All the guests dressed up for this glamourous event and were definitely red carpet ready. The entertainment for the evening was kept a secret from James, Bradley and the Concero team which made it even more special to watch everyone’s reactions. Sweilem Ltd organised the whole event from start to finish including organising the guest list, designing invites, the entertainment, food and photography. Our highlight from the party was the surprise film about how Concero began which was created by Henry Go Park the Car Productions. The film included witty stories about James and Brad that had everyone in stitches. This was followed up with our very own ‘Concero Conspiracy’ band, blasting out soul and rock, formed with Concero staff members including Alan Foster, Jim Cooper, Stefan Jones, Chris Wilkinson, Andy Cunningham, Sean Russell and our cameo Concero member, lead singer Jason Mansell. After this amazing performance we all danced the night away.

Concero would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended the event and those who were unable to attend. None of this would be possible without the support of all our loyal customers. Every person who attended the evening has contributed to the success of this small local business getting to the position that it is in now. Concero are still passionate about what they do even after 10 years of business and wanted to share their success with you all. So, from everyone at Concero – thank you.

THANK YOU


PARTNERS IN LEADING AND LEARNING Concero recently sponsored the ConnectEd Partnership Conference which is designed to help advance educational opportunities and outcomes for children and young people across the city. The event gave local schools the freedom to network and collaborate with a range of exhibitors and attend innovative presentations from keynote speakers including Ian Gilbert who is an award-winning author and leading educational speaker. It was a successful day for everyone involved and Concero were proud to be part of such a fantastic organisation.

the next Connect-Ed conference will be held on 20th June 2019. We are already looking forward to it. www.connectedpartnership.com

READ ALL ABOUT IT -

CONCEROS NEW OFFICE After 10 years in business we have finally purchased commercial premises following funding from Barclays and we couldn’t be happier. Bradley Clegg said: “When we started out in 2008 it would have been difficult to imagine that we would have been able to grow the business to the size we have, to be offering employment opportunities and now to be owning our own premises. We will look to build on this success in the coming years.” Jaspreet Aulakh, relationship manager at Barclays in the Black Country, said: “Concero UK Ltd are a good example of a business that has grown steadily over the years and created a specialised service in the education sector. I am delighted we have been able to support them with this purchase and look forward to watching the continued growth of the business.” If you are visiting us or even want to write to us our new address is Concero UK Ltd, Suite D The Westlands,132 Compton Rd, Wolverhampton, WV3 9QB and is situated opposite the Grammar School.


WE WISH ALL STAFF AND

PUPILS AN ENJOYABLE AND RELAXING SUMMER BREAK

AND LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU BACK IN SEPTEMBER.
