New ICT Direct website

ICT Direct, a distributor of refurbished computers to the educational sector, has completely revamped its website. They advertise with us, and have sent me this press release.

The new website  is very comprehensive and user friendly and provides professional and knowledgeable advice and support to schools. It includes a much wider range of products ICT Direct supply to schools including computers, laptops, monitors, servers, printers, laptop trolleys and tablets.

One key enhancement that has been introduced to the site is a product comparison feature. This allows visitors to the site to compare the specification and price of the computer equipment ICT Direct supply with that of other comparative models on the market.

The ordering process has also been simplified. Buyers can quickly add items to their shopping trolley and also select to view the price inclusive or exclusive of VAT, a feature important to schools. For UK schools, colleges, universities and public sector bodies, ICT Direct will accept payment via official Purchase Orders. Customers would automatically be given a 30-day account on ordering, without any set-up. Deliveries throughout the UK are free too.

An intuitive search feature has also been added, where the site will make recommendations based on searches you have made.

The knowledgebase is one area which proved very popular on the old site, so this has been improved significantly with the addition of more help/fire fighting tips and solutions.

John Graham, Director of ICT Direct, commented,

“We have listened to our customers and carefully considered several enhancements to create a website which is informative and simple to use. There is a vast amount of information on the website about our products and the level of service we offer, however, we always encourage people to call us and speak to us about their requirements, you really can’t beat the personal touch. Anyone seeking reassurance can always look at our case studies and testimonials to see what other schools have said about us. Also, as member of BESA, we strictly adhere to their code of practice.”
