St Anne’s pupils get to grips with innovative technology thanks to Taylor Made

28.09.09 St Anne’s pupils get to grips with innovative technology thanks to Taylor Made Fareham-based IT specialists, Taylor Made Computer Solutions, recently invited sixth form business and IT students from St Anne’s School, Southampton, to try out the latest in technology aboard the Cisco Systems technology bus. The bus is the only one of its kind in Europe and is equipped with the latest in modern technology and software. Global IT giant Cisco visited Taylor Made Computer Solution’s premises in Cams Hall, Fareham to show leaders of industry and local business personnel how readily-available such technology is. Nigel Taylor, Managing Director of Taylor Made, was more than happy to extend the invitation to potential entrepreneurs of the future and said: “In partnership with Cisco, showcasing the benefits of ‘unified communications’ or more simply, how connecting phone, video and computer networks can eliminate costly inefficiencies, was of great value to our customers and contacts. We’ve had some very positive feedback. “We were also delighted to offer the opportunity to students from St Anne’s to help them with their studies and particularly as they will be the local business people of the future; the more they learn now the better it is for our future business and economy.” St Anne’s were given practical demonstrations of what is possible using existing technology, as well as a thought-provoking demonstration of how technology could change in the future. -ENDS- Words – 234 Notes to editors Taylor Made Computer Solutions (TMCS) is an exciting and growing specialist computer solutions company based in Fareham, Hampshire, providing complete professional IT and Training solutions for businesses varying in size from small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs), right through to multinational companies.
