So far, over 500 students are learning with computers, the teachers are learning to use them, and thanks to a social program called 'Schools Always Open', the school opens its doors to the community during vacation periods to give everyone the opportunity to benefit from the computer labs. Everyone is so happy with the solution, that are starting to do fundraising activities to increase the number of connected stations.
The project has been a complete success in several areas. Students and teachers are happy using the computers, and the Government of Veracruz is very satisfied with the solution's low cost, high performance and ease of management. "With the online support there is no need to worry about software failures, technical training or system formatting. You just connect a monitor, keyboard and mouse, and you are done. That's especially good for a rural area," said Guillermina.
Guillermina and her team realized that working with Userful eliminates ongoing maintenance costs and reduces hardware costs by 60%. After following the pilot very closely, they concluded that with the same budget they would use to setup a digital lab with 10 BenQ computers, they can build 3 digital labs with 25 stations each with Userful. Their goal now is to replicate the Userful solution throughout the Veracruz school system.
