CDI Computer Dealers, one of North America’s leading providers of education technology solutions is pleased to announce a partnership with Impero Software, reputed specialists in classroom monitoring and management software.

“Some areas our education clients consistently inquire about are online safety, classroom and network management,” added Collins. “In response, we are thrilled to offer Impero Education Pro, a cross-platform, monitoring and management software suite. It allows teachers to deploy innovative digital learning initiatives while ensuring students remain protected online. The suite will also streamline network management tasks for IT staff. With this new offering, CDI remains committed to expanding the range of solutions for our education clients as their needs change.”

“At CDI, we’ve worked with over 6,000 Education institutions in the last five years and we have seen an unprecedented rise in the use of mobile computing devices, notably Chromebooks, in the classroom.”
