Magicka is an education focused company that offers IT solutions. We make no secret of the fact that we are not a traditional IT company.
We believe in running a "cloud first" school based around Google Apps. Our focus is on making the technology invisible so that it "just works".
How do we save you money?
Unlike other companies who provide the usual solutions such as Windows servers and desktops we utilize the most up to date and relevant technology for you. This helps us to increase schools efficiency whilst reducing budget spent on IT at the same time.
We recommend G Suite for education because it has features that are simpler and more suited to education than competing products, each account genuinely gets unlimited storage and Google classroom is one of the most powerful tools around. It also has the perk of saving you a large amount of money.
We carefully selected Arbor as our partners. This is because they have a company ethic that matches our own and must obey ethical rules laid down by their investors. In addition, Arbor is a fantastic MIS (Management Information System) that is easy to use and centralises your data. They also happen to be substantially cheaper than other competitors whilst providing a premium product.
Magicka has chosen to be a Google for education partner as we believe that the use of the G suite and Chromebooks are the most powerful and cost effective tools for schools.
Why use the G-suite?
Setup and management is simple and these cloud-based tools scale easily across classrooms. The products are easy for teachers and students to learn.
G Suite for Education offers a free suite of tools for schools, including 24/7 support.
Educators can provide instant feedback and track a student’s progress to improve performance. Tools like Google Classroom also help free up educator time so they can focus on what they do best: teaching.
Work anywhere, anytime, and on any device with G Suite for Education. The tools encourage collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.
Ethics are very important to us here at Magicka. We only sell two products (Xirrus WiFi and Ericom connect). All other equipment is sourced via third parties that have proved The school is asked to buy directly after we have negotiated the best possible total cost.
We do not take commission or kickbacks. As well as this we only recommend products that we would buy ourselves. When and where we do make money we will disclose this to the school in advance.
