You have devices. Now it’s time to choose a solution to help you manage them–push apps, set policies, report, and help make them powerful tools for teaching & learning. Why should you choose Lightspeed Systems Mobile Manager? Well…
1. You’re a school, not a company
Schools are different from enterprises, and have different needs when it comes to managing mobile devices. Lightspeed Systems Mobile Manager was made just for schools, with school needs and structures in mind.
2. You want to balance management between IT and teachers
Mobile Manager makes it easy for IT to maintain centralized control, but to push some management capabilities to teachers for their classes and groups. This is important when technology is being used in the classroom for academic purposes.
3. School-based hierarchies and inheritance
We’ve set up our Mobile Manager to match a school’s hierarchy, with smart systems to allow users and groups to inherit policies and apps based on their position in their organization’s hierarchy. This makes management easier for everyone.
4. You’re already using our Web Filter
If you’re already using our Web Filter, integrating Mobile Manager allows you to seamlessly extend a user’s filtering policies to their mobile device, whether it is on or off the network.
5. You’re already using My Big Campus
If you’re using our LMS, My Big Campus, adding Mobile Manager is a no-brainer. Through easy SIS integration, you can create all your accounts and populate your groups/classes in My Big Campus. And then they’re automatically populated and maintained in Mobile Manager, too. Plus, teachers can control device policies right within their My Big Campus groups and classes!
6. You have (or may eventually have) different devices
Mobile Manager lets you manage iOS, Mac OS, Windows 8, and Android devices distributed across your network – all from a single interface.
7. You’re doing BYOD
On student-owned devices, you’re going to have two primary concerns: pushing apps and managing policies during school hours. With Mobile Manager, you can put student-owned devices into BYOD groups, where you can have set policies for use of device features during the school day — but then use time-based policies to turn them off after school hours. You can also push apps to student devices and, through Managed Distribution, the school retains ownership of them and can revoke them from the student device at any time.
8. You want to leverage the cloud
Mobile Manager is a cloud-based solution, accessible from anywhere. You can manage devices, set policies, and push apps over the air with ease.
9. It’s just so easy
Take a look at this clean interface. IT and teachers can manage with a simple interface and control powerful policies, features and apps with just a click.
