Lancashire Schools Group Telecoms Audit Results

We have just completed our Lancashire Schools Telecoms Cost Saving Project Audit which we ran throughout March. The project was a great success with 22 schools joining forces to increase their buying power to drive down prices. The project targeted cost savings across phone line rentals and calls, mobiles, telephone system maintenance contracts and broadband.

Most of the schools that took part in the project were members of the Lancashire Association of School Business Managers (LASBM) of which TGE Solutions are an Approved Partner. The continued support of the LASBM team and the willingness of their school members to work together to support other schools is a credit to them all.

The results of the Lancashire Schools Group Telecoms Cost Saving Project were as follows:

  • 22 Schools involved – 5 Secondary / 16 Primary / 1 Pupil Referral Unit
  • Secondary School savings ranged from £1,106- £9,431
  • Secondary School average saving was £6,642
  • Primary School savings ranged from £923- £7,825
  • Primary School average saving was £2,136
  • Pupil Referral Unit saving was £1,734


We are looking forward to attending the next LASBM conferences on 11th May and 7th June, at the conferences we will be launching another cost savings project for Lancashire Schools that were unable to take part in the last project.

TGE Solutions specialise in helping schools to reduce costs on their telecoms expenditure. Our Telecoms Audits identify cost savings on phone line rentals, call charges, telephone system maintenance, mobiles and broadband. We also assist schools to procure new telephone systems, we will design a solution that is right for the school, write tender documentation, advise on suitable products and suppliers, review all supplier quotations and ensure that the school is purchasing the best system from the best supplier at the best price. It is important to stress that we only offer advice and do not sell any telecoms products.
