Education Services Nottingham has partnered with TGE Solutions to save you money on your annual telecoms expenditure and assist with the procurement of telecoms products and services and are offering you 10% discount to all schools that use either their procurement services or telecoms audit before 31st December 2017.

With over 250 school customers, TGE Solutions is an independent telecoms advisory business specialising in the Education Sector. We are unique in that we do not sell any telecoms products, instead we use our knowledge of the telecoms industry to help schools combat the telecoms companies, ensuring that you are not being overcharged by your existing suppliers and that the products and services you procure are fit for purpose.

We provide two key services that will benefit your school, our Procurement Services and Telecoms Audits.

Procurement Services

We can assist your school with the procurement of new telephone systems, mobile contracts, phone lines and internet lines. As we do no sell any of these products we will work with you to advise on the best solutions for your school. Our Procurement Services provide you with the following:

  • After understanding your requirements, we will design a solution that is right for your school.
  • We then prepare tender documentation so that all companies are quoting on a like for like basis. We also focus on future costs to ensure that you are never overcharged throughout the lifetime of the contract.
  • We can recommend suitable companies if required or you can select your own.
  • We will review all the quotations and provide a detailed report showing initial purchase price and the total cost of ownership over the length of the contract, along with our recommendations.
  • We will assist you to select the best solution from the best supplier at the best price.

Many of the schools in Nottingham are still using the Virgin Centrex telephone system. Centrex is an antiquated system that generally no longer meets the requirements of most schools. Any schools still using Centrex can benefit greatly from the new technologies that are available, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss these benefits and the various options available to you.

Telecoms Audits

Most schools that we work with are being over charged by their telecoms suppliers without being aware. The telecoms industry is a fast changing market with products and prices constantly changing. We know that schools rarely have the time or knowledge to confidently deal with telecom projects making it very difficult to benchmark pricing, this puts schools in a vulnerable position with often leads to them being overcharged.

Our Telecoms Audits help to overcome these problems and ensure that you are paying for the products and services that you require at the lowest possible prices without sacrificing customer service and support. Our Telecoms Audit will provide you with the following:


  • We review your telecoms infrastructure to ensure it is fit for purpose.
  • We analyse your telephone bills, mobile bills and maintenance contracts to see if you are being overcharged.
  • Source competitive pricing on your behalf to meet your procurement regulations.
  • Detail potential cost savings and our recommendations in your audit report.
  • You will be armed to make the right decision for your school – Renegotiate better prices with your current suppliers of switch to new ones.
  • We guarantee to save you at least double our audit fee.
