Education supplier Stone has announced a PC rental scheme aimed at schools struggling with budgets but facing the need to invest in the latest technology.

The channel player used the education show BETT as the forum for its Rent-a-PC schem, which offers a three-year rental period with returns, upgrades or swap outs included as options during that period.

The scheme is designed to help those schools that are struggling to cope with budget cuts, which have been imposed by government to claw back the deficit, and allows them to pay for IT out of revenue rather than capital budgets.

James Bird, chief executive of Stone, said that the pressure on the education system was a real concern for customers and they had to juggle that with the need to be innovative.

"It therefore falls to the IT industry to be innovative with their offerings and proactively provide finance options that are flexible enough to meet the diverse needs and particular pressures of the education sector. We believe that the Rent-a-PC scheme provides a viable solution to the challenges schools and colleges shall be facing in 2012," he said.

"We understand that every school has its own unique set of circumstances and ICT requirements. Our offerings encompass a 'partial' support package, scaling all the way up to a full remote or onsite Managed Service," he added.
