Academia’s connectED programme has been designed to assist educational establishments who are considering a 1:1 device scheme. 1:1 learning allows for anytime, anywhere learning with students engaging in digital content. If this is a consideration with you, Academia can offer a direct credit portal for students and parents to purchase a device with insurance and accessories without the financial liability that comes with a traditional operating lease for an education establishment.
This parental portal offers the technology bundle chosen by the school and unlike a client operating lease, the credit facility is directly with the parent through our chosen credit facility (DEKO). The parents can choose to pay monthly or an outright purchase with the associated accessories.Insurance and warranty claims are processed via the portal. The devices are delivered to the school and therefore eligible for Education pricing.
