Higher Education Solutions
Colleges and Universities have a lot in common with corporations. The students are your consumers and the market is extremely competitive. Higher Education institutions are constantly faced with the challenge of staying on the cutting edge of technology while also fighting to keep costs down so that tuition and fees don’t skyrocket. Our remote management cart solutions are the ideal choice for higher education. They are all-inclusive mobile computing labs that can be easily rolled anywhere on campus, while lowering your total cost of ownership for the notebooks.
- Most schools are still sending technicians out with a switch and a handful of CAT-5 cables. Techs are pulling laptops out and manually updating them, one cart at a time. Our carts enable remote management with wake-on-lan functionality. Notebooks can be imaged in the carts and updates can be remotely scheduled and automated. Depending on how frequently your school is updating your notebooks, our carts often pay for themselves within the first year.
- Alternately, other schools send updates to the notebooks via wireless once a student powers it up. This often leads to students spending half of a class period downloading upgrades and rebooting, all the while draining battery life. This is valuable instruction or testing-time lost.
- Our Intelligent Charging System will only send power where it’s needed. Once the notebooks are charged, it will shut off. This saves energy, as well as improves the life of the notebook battery. Other notebook carts have simple timers that continuously cycle power back and forth to half of the notebooks in the cart at a time.
- Another common scenario we often see is teachers and students getting so frustrated with the constant updates, dead batteries and other challenges associated with other notebook carts, that they opt not to use the notebooks. In this scenario, the district is getting next to zero return on its investment. Conversely, teachers and students love and praise our carts constantly . A JAR cart will never be shunned to the closet.
