UK-based direct PC vendor Dan Technology Ltd has won one of the first National Grid for Learning contacts, and will supply and install one million pounds worth of PCs to 47 schools in the Bradford area. The company will work with its own networking systems subsidiary Dan Network Solutions, network infrastructure company GT, and Bradford-based internet service provider The Legend Internet on the contract, which will see a minimum of six networked PCs plus a file server installed at each school. The contract is the first stage of the project, under the auspices of the UK government’s one billion pound NGfL scheme, which aims to fund educationally valuable content on the internet while also developing means of access in schools, libraries, colleges, universities, workplaces and homes. The government says it aims to triple the market in educational information and communications technology. Dan Technology, based in London, was formed in 1988 and sells desktop PCs, workstations and servers. It has 180 staff and a turnover of around 40m pounds. It’s one of a very few UK-based PC assemblers that also includes Elonex Plc, Evesham Micros Ltd, Panrix Ltd, Viglin Technology Plc and Tiny Computer Ltd.
