One school district recently rolled out a fleet of 1,000 iPads with no ruggedised protective cases. Close to 150 of their fleet experienced physical damage.
Martinez, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
D&D Security Resources, the leader in safeguarding educational technology investments, announced today it has added the Drop Tech Series protective case for the Apple iPad Mini to its lineup of protective tablet cases.
The iPad Mini is the most affordable tablet to ever come from Apple to date – as a result, schools in growing numbers are deploying the iPad Mini for student use. With this has come the challenge of protecting these ultra light, ultra thin devices from damage.
Under normal conditions and without using protective cases, school districts can expect at least 10 to 15 percent of their tablet fleet to be damaged. “One school district recently rolled out a fleet of 1,000 iPads with no ruggedised protective cases. Close to 150 of their fleet experienced physical damage. At an average repair cost of $140 each, the out of pocket repair cost to the District was nearly $21,000.00,” said Jeff Rogers, General Manager of D&D Security. “After the District began using our ruggedised protective cases, the number of damaged iPads decreased to practically none.”
The new Drop Tech iPad Mini Case sports a poly carbonate structural frame combined with a silicon outer casing and reinforced rubber corners, all of which create multiple layers of shock absorption. User-friendly access to the iPad Mini’s buttons and camera allows for a versatile solution while protecting a valuable asset. It’s easy to grip, convenient to access, and extremely durable – perfect for the school environment. The Drop Tech Series joins a suite of quality tablet products from D&D Security Resources, including sync and charging stations, security carts, stands, tracking tags and power accessories.
