Thank you for visiting R-E-M, the acknowledged market leader in educational software. R-E-M has been supplying educational services to schools, colleges, LEAs, parents and students for over 48 years, and is committed to providing the very best service and support to all our customers.
R-E-M originally supplied schools with colour slides and filmstrips before expanding into the software market. R-E-M were one of the first companies to supply BBC and Sinclair Spectrum tapes to the original Computers for Schools schemes in 1984. R-E-M was also the first company to catalogue educational software products from a range of publishers.
Following a move from London in 1983 R-E-M is now based in Somerset - an ideal location for a direct mail business. The company has a well-trained and motivated team.
In 2008 R-E-M acquired Zings Music to expand our range of resources which now includes software, special needs, musical and classroom resources under a variety of brands.
In 2011 R-E-M acquired exclusive rights to all of the Logotron software titles. David Bennett, Joint Director of R-E-M says “We are delighted to have secured the future of the Logotron range, as we feel they are still very good teaching tools and have a good future within education. With R-E-M acquiring the range, it ensures there is no disruption to the supply of resources into schools, as R-E-M previously distributed all of Logotron’s titles on behalf of Logotron Ltd.”
Over the years R-E-M has become the leading supplier of educational software to schools with over 150,000 catalogues distributed world-wide annually. This has been due to our unrivalled range of educational software and knowledge of the education market, backed up by our outstanding levels of customer service. Our commitment to meeting customer needs has seen a variety of innovations over the years, including:
- Specialist catalogues - Basic Skills & Special Needs, Secondary (subject specific), Adult Basic Skills and Secondary Special Needs
- Free Software Scheme to help schools stretch their software budget
- The online, secure order web site that you are accessing now
- Scottish Curriculum classification online of all software titles
- Key Account Services for LEA and bulk purchasers

With over 48 year's experience of supplying services to schools R-E-M has seen many changes in education, with the introduction of the National Curriculum and the rise in importance of ICT in schools. R-E-M has been there to provide advice and guidance to teachers wishing to enrich their lessons with new and exciting material, from slides and videos to interactive multimedia software.
