Focused on impartiality

As a not-for-profit, we’re able to focus solely on what’s right for our clients and the broader public good. We’re not tied to any specific technology and free to make appropriate recommendations, regardless of any financial incentives.

With Eduserv, you’ll receive high-quality impartial advice, which is built on a shared commitment to cost-efficient services to the public and for the public good.

Committed to excellence

Due to our steadfast dedication to excellence, we’ve been able to develop an exceptional team of over 100 high-calibre individuals. From specialist cloud architects, through to resourceful project managers, everyone brings their own ideas and experiences.

It takes a broad set of minds to improve services, whilst also reducing costs.

True partners

We value relationships and aim to increase the digital independence of our clients, rather than bind them to technological constraints. As such, you’ll feel empowered to make your own decisions and never coerced to take a specific route.

By working jointly around a shared responsibility, we can find lasting answers to a diverse array of problems.

Stable governance

Eduserv’s Board of Trustees can guarantee its future stability in governance. We’ll always retain our independence and our recommendations will be rooted in the public interest. When you partner with us, you can be reassured of your long-term security.
