How Office Technologies Helped a Local School District Refresh Their Projector Fleet

Schools must continue to operate while facing a wide variety of daily challenges. One of the primary issues that administrators need to contend with is reduced budgets and working with older technology. As the quality of education depends on dedicated teachers, administrators need to find innovative ways to improve their daily productivity like upgrading classroom projectors. One of the tools that help teachers deliver better lectures and improve student engagement are LCD Projectors.

New projectors do not come cheap, so when a school wants to upgrade and deploy them, they’ll need assistance. NEC’s Star Student Program helps educational facilities update their imaging devices at rates that don’t strain their budgets. The program includes many benefits, such as increased warranty periods and trade-in or trade-up recycling initiatives. Office Technologies recently helped a School District upgrade over 100 projectors via the NEC Star Student Program.

A Brief Summary of Office Technologies LCD Projector Replacement Project

During spring break of 2019, a local School District contacted Office Technologies regarding a projector refresh to be completed during the summer of 2019. After price negotiations with NEC under their NEC’s Star Student Program, Office Technologies was able to offer the school Educational discount pricing.  Along with great NEC projector pricing, Office Technologies was able to win the award with NEC’s  5-year NEXT DAY exchange service warranty.  Under this warranty, when service is needed on a device, a projector is sent overnight to the customer asap.  The 5-year warranty is a benefit of the NEC Star Student Program and exceeds any other projector manufacturer’s warranty. Office Technologies, received the Award of Proposal on June 18th, and immediately ordered 118 NEC Projectors.

Office Technologies’ team started the refresh by installing a new laser projector in the High School’s Auditorium. After completing the Auditorium installations, Office Technologies continued installing 7 – NEC NP-UM351W-WK projectors and 111 – NEC NP-UM361X-WK projectors at various locations.  The entire 118 projector installation was completed in a four-week span at two different buildings, which included a junior/senior high school, as well as an elementary school. The entire project ran for just under two months and was completed before the start of the new school year.
