Mobile devices are changing education and Lightspeed Systems is changing the way these devices are managed.
(PRWEB UK) 7 October 2014
Mobile Manager, the mobile device management (MDM) solution from Lightspeed Systems, currently supports the new features of Apple’s iOS8. Following the announcement from Apple earlier this summer, Mobile Manager was updated to be fully compatible – ensuring schools using the MDM from Lightspeed Systems have a seamless transition and can begin using Apple’s new education-rich features immediately.
Mobile devices are changing education and Lightspeed Systems is changing the way these devices are managed. In addition to hierarchical policy settings, education specific tools, and a user-friendly interface, the MDM solution also features application controls, integration with the Apple Volume Purchasing Plan, remote wiping, and centralised inventory, reporting, updates, and installs.
This latest release from Apple features new device management and classroom workflow enhancements. Increased MDM controls include remote configuration, new queries to provide administrators with more oversight, prevention from users adding their own restrictions, and more.
The new operating system also works on the iPad2 and iPad Mini, allowing many schools to continue using devices already implemented. iBooks will now be pre-installed on tablets, enabling administrators to automatically push books through the MDM—ensuring students are equipped with appropriate, approved content. Essential for schools using multiple devices, the latest update also features integration between iPads and Macs. With iOS8, schools can AirDrop files seamlessly between a Mac and mobile device. And since Mobile Manager gives teachers the ability to easily manage devices in their classrooms, these latest iOS features can have an immediate impact on student learning.
Mobile Manager’s instant support of iOS8 gives schools using Apple devices an easily managed mobile learning experience. To take advantage of these new management features visit http://www.lightspeedsystems.com/en-uk/products/mobile-manager/ and sign up for a demo.
