Amtel Solution Drives Reduction in Costs and Increased Efficiencies While Allowing Students and Teachers to Utilize Android Tablets and iPads in the Classroom
SANTA CLARA, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 3, 2013) – Amtel (www.amtelnet.com) the leading provider of solutions for the mobile revolution, has announced that the Health Sciences Charter School (HSCS) has chosen Amtel MDM solution to better manage its mobile assets.
The school needed to have the right policies in place to ensure that students were using school-issued Android Tablets and Apple iPads securely and for the intended purposes: homework assignments, classroom activities and sharing of content between teachers and students.
With the Amtel MDM solution, Health Sciences Charter School quickly established control over all of their mobile devices, both school owned and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). HSCS realized benefits from tighter controls, improved efficiencies, and cost savings, and is now prepared to securely embrace BYOD.
“Amtel’s MDM solution stood out for a few reasons,” said Nicholas Aures, Systems Engineer responsible for IT implementations at HSCS. “The cloud based MDM service worked great and we had a dedicated specialist that teamed with us at all stages of the solution — from discovery to testing and final implementation. Bottom line is that we got a robust MDM solution that exceeded our expectations while meeting our budget constraints.”
HSCS implemented “whitelist” policies for automatic distribution of mandatory and important school applications to students’ mobile devices, saving time for teachers and admins by not having to individually load those apps.
The school reduced the risks of data loss from lost or stolen mobile devices with the ability to lock, fully wipe, or selectively wipe the information on mobile devices.
“We are thrilled that Health Sciences Charter School selected Amtel after a thorough trial and evaluation of several MDM solutions,” said Pankaj Gupta, CEO of Amtel. “We are seeing demand for our cost-effective MDM solution at educational institutions, both K-12 and Universities. Amtel is an established company with more than a decade of experience and a proven track record in helping customers to secure and manage their mobile devices and control related expenses and risks.”
