This Manchester-based Apple partner recently delivered England's largest ever iPad deployment, providing 30,000 devices to UK schools in the 2020/21 academic year in partnership with Oasis Community Learning Trust. Sync's revenues rose by more than a fifth in calendar 2020, with net profits bulking up from £974,000 to £1.6m. Rebranding from GBM in February, it was awarded a place on the new iteration of the Apple HE framework on 1 November, and boasts a retail store in Manchester city centre.
The remote learning boom has certainly boosted Sync's coffers over the last 18 months. It recently invested £100,000 in three new online stores - Sync:Pro, Sync:Gov and Sync:Ed - to help UK organisations adjust to new flexible working/learning norms.
