Large-scale examinations sometimes need specialized equipment that the institution conducting the examinations may not hold in inventory. These can be various items, such as desktops, printers, PA sound systems, projectors, projector screens, stacking chairs, tables and so on.
In certain situations, miscommunication in the planning stages could lead to a last-minute discovery that the equipment a school does have in stock is not sufficient for the needs of the examination.
In both circumstances, a simple solution is to hire equipment for examinations. This can solve unexpected shortages in equipment or make up for a known lack of inventory. If an institution is conducting an examination in a different location from its main campus, renting out equipment makes it easy as it will be delivered to the right location.
Virtual Reality & the Covid-19 Pandemic
With the current COVID situation affecting Events, Exhibitions and Training Opportunities, companies and the general public are looking into alternative methods of carrying on within the new normal. Virtual Reality Events and Virtual Reality Training are becoming more and more popular as an alternative for in-person Events and Training that cannot currently go-ahead.
When looking at Virtual Events benefits, cost saving, time saving & global reach (therefore reducing your global footprint) are the obvious standouts. However, collection of feedback and ease of tracking user results also give you instant benefits over a physical event option.
Studies over the previous year have been proving that VR-Training is both more effective & more cost-efficient than in-person training methods. V-learn concepts, have proved to increase confidence & provide less distraction than classroom or e-learning alternatives.
We can offer solutions for Virtual Reality Hire & Augmented Reality Hire, see our full range of Virtual Reality Equipment Hire, including a full Oculus Range, HTC, Samsung & Microsoft products and solutions.
How we can help
Using internal equipment will mean the company has to get a moving company to transport the equipment and this will add extra costs as well as increase the potential for breakage during transportation.
Renting will also protect an institution from using money from a restricted budget to buy equipment which it only needs in limited examination situations. This can save the school money which can be put towards investment in providing services for its students and increasing their overall educational experience.
Hire Intelligence has become something of an expert in providing OsiriX-capable Apple equipment to teaching and examination centres involved in radiology. OsiriX is image-processing software used for such applications as MRI, CT and Ultrasound.
Institutions involved in radiology can hire Apple equipment from Hire Intelligence, knowing that it will be configured in exactly the manner they require. Because we have the largest fleet of Mac equipment in the UK, we are able to provide dozens of identically configured Apple desktop computers, ensuring that nobody taking an exam has an unfair advantage over anyone else. Typically, 50 of the latest identical iMacs are configured and installed at the examination venues for each session.See others
