The rising demand for digital tech

Gratnells, best known for 40 years of designing, manufacturing and marketing advanced storage systems, has developed a smart, responsive approach to meet the increasing demand for digital technology in schools and colleges.

The company has used its in-depth knowledge of the education sector to react to this rapidly growing trend, applying its expertise in providing storage systems, good order and management of physical space.

The launch of the iPad in 2010 enabled students and teachers to create unique opportunities for personal learning at every level. Tablets have become a bridge of information and today’s children are born into a world of ‘digital immersion’ through the power of touch, motion and sound. Gratnells has responded to this universal adoption of technology in the education environment with storage systems that are compact, lightweight and versatile while providing security and additional functionality.

PowerTray F2 (deep) and F25 (extra deep) Charge models are available in both charge only and charge and sync and continuously analyse the appetite for power from digital devices, responding with an optimised rate of charge and syncing between them to produce a complete management system, besides offering secure, efficient storage and availability.

Where the technical skills set of students often surpasses that of the teachers and lecturers, the need for elements of good stewardship and control remain paramount. Product innovations such as the PowerTray/PowerTrolley deliver all the benefits of digital resources while retaining proper accountability for equipment, along with ‘regulated’ access and guaranteed readiness of the devices.
