Primary School Project, Interactive Televisions
*Check out our video for this project by clicking here!*
In late 2018 Sourci was approached by staff members at Strathfieldsaye Primary School who were hoping to purchase interactive televisions for the use as educational aids in their classrooms. A teacher at the school had tried to obtain quotations from various companies but this resulted in them becoming increasingly concerned with the authenticity of the Chinese suppliers they had been dealing with – with company names & payment details chopping & changing at the last minute.
Sourci’s team began research right away, and quickly identified a number of qualified manufacturers of these TV’s thanks to our Chinese-based experts. Within 2-3 weeks our team had obtained formal proforma invoices for 55” 65” and 75” high-spec, quality interactive televisions. Within days the school selected their preferred manufacturer and Sourci completed an in-person factory audit which we provided in video & PDF format showing demonstration & functionality of the TV’s. An order was quickly placed, Sourci arranged freight & customs, and even helped unload the entire container when they were delivered to the school in Bendigo late February. Not only did Sourci’s team help with unloading & delivery (overdelivering..?) but the team filmed various instruction videos on how to use the TV’s, and are providing full aftercare service free of charge. We also negotiated a further 3 year warranty on these TVs over the original 12 month proposed warranty.
Oh and did we mention that by purchasing direct from the manufacturer Strathfieldsaye Primary School saved over $60,000? – This allows them to even further re-invest in their school, infrastructure, and importantly, their students.
