IDNS provides a range of technology solutions for education and to help mark its recent rebranding is offering a £25,000 technology giveaway for schools

Leading audio visual (AV), IT and infrastructure provider IDNS has launched a new brand identity as part of their continued growth and development.

To celebrate, IDNS is giving back to the organisations that have helped them get where they are today by providing a £25,000 prize giveaway. The competition, which runs throughout May, is open for anyone to enter but prizes can only be won by education establishments.

There are three prizes available to be spent with IDNS on technology:

  • First prize: £12,500
  • Second prize: £7,500
  • Third prize: £5,000

The technology available as part of the prizes focuses on improving learning outcomes and collaboration in a post Covid-19 world. Each winner will get the same consultative approach that is delivered to every IDNS customer, providing them with expert advice, design, installation and on-site training.

To enter the competition, entrants must input the correct code via the IDNS website. To obtain the code, they must visit a series of websites and collect a piece of the code at each. Once the entrant has collected all the pieces, they can return to the IDNS website to enter the combination and fill in the form to be in with a chance of winning.

The launch of the new IDNS brand began with a virtual launch event for key customers and senior industry figures and led by managing directors, David Shuttleworth and Darren Clayman.

A key part of the new brand identity is the introduction of new company strapline: "Technology that Matters". Mr Clayman explained: “We didn’t want to change the name of the company as the IDNS brand is already synonymous with exceptional account management and customers service along with market leading technology solutions. What we did want to do is make sure that everyone clearly understands who we are, what we do and why we’re here.”

Since a management buyout was completed by Shuttleworth and Clayman in 2019, IDNS has gone from strength to strength despite the challenges of Covid-19. IDNS has increased turnover year-on-year and are on track to surpass £35m for the first time in the history of the company. This on-going success is in part down to the solid foundations on which IDNS is built.

Mr Clayman added: “David has been here almost from the start and knows the business inside out. He has worked in every department but has spent the last 10 years running the finances and administration, keeping us financially strong.”

“My background is in AV and I actually started the AV division over 15 years ago. Since then, we’ve redefined what it means to be an integrator by adding IT hardware, software, networking and infrastructure to our solutions, therefore it was important that we had a brand that reflected who we are today. We’re not just an AV or IT company, we’re a full technology solutions provider.”

Mr Shuttleworth said: “Over the last few years, we have been investing heavily in the infrastructure of IDNS to enable us to grow and develop. We’re now starting to reap the rewards of that effort and the new brand gives us the vehicle to communicate clearly the values of IDNS. I’ve been with IDNS for more than 30 years, and I’ve never been more excited about what the future holds and the difference we can make.”

Mr Clayman added: “Everyone associated with IDNS is extremely proud of how far we have come in recent years. The brand launch has given us the perfect opportunity to celebrate what we’ve achieved, at the same time as giving thanks to the people who have been with us on our journey and helped us get where we are today.”
