About Gaia Technologies

Formed in 1992, Gaia Technologies has become one of the leading providers of ICT solutions to UK schools. From our headquarters in Bangor, and with operational bases in Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff and London, we currently look after more than 500 education customers.

Through a well-earned reputation for innovation, commitment to customer care and an unrivalled track record for on-time and on-budget delivery of projects, Gaia has established itself as a trusted partner for schools.

Gaia’s Managed Services offer schools a valuable resource in managing and maintaining IT assets. Providing bespoke solutions, developed to meet the exact IT requirements of each school, we work to gain a deep understanding of the unique educational needs and goals of each school. This approach does not revolve around just selling the customer a product to meet their immediate needs, but aims to support the school’s development over a period of time. We work with you to address your wider IT vision and to ensure that all your support and maintenance needs are met.

Gaia’s Managed Service support ensures that highly qualified and experienced IT personnel are continually and actively engaged in undertaking maintenance and precautionary activity for the school, both on site and remotely. We can provide complete reassurance that your systems and machines are always modern, fully maintained and work-ready.

Gaia's commitment to the quality process has been recognized through the award of ISO 9001-2000, ISO 14001, ISO 20000-1, ISO 27001 and OHSAS 18001. Helped by these standards Gaia was awarded a place on both Lot 1 and Lot 2 of the Department of Education ICT services framework (formerly BECTA) - becoming only one of five ICT companies to have been awarded a place on every DfE ICT services framework since it's inception.

Gaia is also a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, a Cisco Premier Partner, a Cisco SMB Specialized Partner, a HP Preferred Partner, an Acer Platinum Reseller and a Microsoft Small Business Specialist amongst others.
