Company hires Education expert and pre-releases NetOp School 5.5 at the BETT show 2008

2nd January 2008, Reading, UK; As NetOp Tech Ltd - a wholly owned subsidiary of Danish IT company Danware - prepares to pre-release NetOp School version 5.5 at the BETT show in January 2008, it has employed Peter Claxton to strengthen its focus on the Education sector for the year ahead.

With over 20 years of Educational ICT experience under his belt, Peter’s arrival will provide the company with specific industry experience and contacts, as well as creating a dedicated point of contact for channel partners working or hoping to join the reseller network in this area.

“Over the last few years, schools have spent well over £350 million on curriculum software without really maximising their investment. I’m really excited to be working with NetOp School, as I feel that it’s the classroom management tool all teachers have been looking for to do just that“ said Peter Claxton, Educational Business Development Manager at NetOp.

Peter has worked in a number of educational-focussed roles after training as an ICT teacher, providing advice to Local Authorities, and also to businesses worldwide including; LEGO, AVP (one of the largest software distributors in the UK) and most recently Steljes, where he headed up Software Business Development.

“Peter’s expertise is going to be a great asset to our customers, and will allow us to work closely with our key educational channel partners,” said Mike Kibblewhite, Managing Director of NetOp.

Peter and the rest of the NetOp team will be attending the BETT show, held on January 9 – 12 at London’s Olympia, on stand G69. NetOp will be using a fully recycled and reusable stand to create the ‘NetOp High School’ environment, which will demonstrate how its solutions support safe, fun, interactive learning in ICT classrooms.

There will be regular pre-view demonstrations of NetOp School 5.5 on the stand, the latest version of the company’s flagship solution, which is used by over a third of secondary schools in the UK.
