Theys: "We ended up at VanRoey.be via a public contract. For us, it was not so much the price, but rather the quality of its technical people that was the deciding factor in setting up the cooperation," says Bram Smets, Education Sales Manager at VanRoey.be: "In the first phase, we were called in to keep everything working. A structurally proactive approach was discussed later".
Davy Theys: "What we soon noticed was that the cooperation with VanRoey.be is professional, always clear and transparent, Bram is our first point of contact, so that communication is very direct and we receive immediate answers to our questions. after some maintenance work, our cooperation today has grown into a structural cooperation with a shared vision for the long term, and we want to evolve towards a future-proof environment with maximum uptime, which is why we have decided to call on VanRoey.be Managed Services for the day-to-day maintenance of the ICT infrastructure of our 5 schools... for at least 4 years now!
Davy Theys adds: "We like to focus on sustainable technologies and hardware that we are sure will be usable for the long term, and VanRoey.be's professionalism and expertise provide considerable added value. We can use a specialist in all sub-domains, for example in the field of licensing: the city council buys its terminal server and Office 365 licenses from VanRoey.be as they have a certified specialist in the field of Microsoft licenses and they are a very reputable partner of Microsoft, which creates trust and makes it work easily.
Theys: "The result is that we use a collection of technologies that work together seamlessly, and thanks to the Managed Services contract, the continuity of the ICT services is unrivalled... You can be sure that this will benefit the end users! It is still a little too early to say a lot about the final results of our investments today, especially since we still have many plans on the table and other things have only just started, but we are entrusting more and more things to VanRoey.be. We are moving away from the ad hoc extinguishing of fires and we are looking forward to the next 4 years with great confidence!
