Question: What software should be considered beyond the device?
Mike: School IT departments continue to look for ways to manage their growing device fleets, including saving time and increasing efficiency. Picture this: IT departments are still the same size in school districts – probably with three to five people – trying to enroll thousands of laptops into a school. Employing asset management software will allow IT directors to stay accountable and remotely update all the laptops at the same time, send updates and manage the software. IT directors can take it a step further and add content filtering to the laptops. One of the silver linings of remote learning is keeping students safe from conducting concerning online searches. Filtering solutions can alert administrators when students access websites with inappropriate material and also pick up bullying. Lastly, IT directors have several options for bundling up their services, hardware and software. Any vendor can sell a laptop, but Trox's differentiator is working with IT directors to get the right solution that is most effective in the school district.
