Today, ed-tech solution provider Lightspeed Systems announced two new solutions for the K-12 education market. The Lightspeed Systems Bundle for Chrome and Lightspeed Systems Cloud Filter were unveiled at the 2016 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference and Expo.

Lightspeed’s newest solutions were designed to meet the needs of K-12 schools, which are increasingly adopting Google Chromebooks as well as cloud-based network management solutions. The Lightspeed Systems Bundle for Chrome is an all-in-one solution for the management and safety of school Chromebooks; the Lightspeed Systems Cloud Filter is a powerful, cloud-hosted content filter that ensures safe access and CIPA compliance.

The Lightspeed System Bundle for Chrome combines two of the company’s products — Web Filter and Classroom Orchestrator — in a comprehensive solution for Chromebooks in schools. The bundle includes classroom monitoring, screen broadcasting, browser controls, content delivery, cloud filtering and reporting features to help schools monitor device use and ROI. When added to new Chromebook purchases, the Lightspeed Systems Bundle for Chrome gives teachers the tools to manage devices in the classroom, and IT teams tools to keep devices safe and compliant. The Bundle for Chrome is available in two versions and offers multi-OS features for schools whose networks host a variety of operating systems.

The Lightspeed Systems Cloud Filter offers all the capabilities, controls and reporting features of the award-winning Lightspeed Systems Web Filter while eliminating the need for on-network hardware, minimizing cost, maintenance, and start-up time. Built upon a redundant, scalable, hosted infrastructure, the Lightspeed Systems Cloud Filter provides CIPA compliance and safety on school devices wherever they may go.

“We’re constantly talking to school teachers and IT teams, listening to their needs, and responding with solutions that make their lives easier,” shares Lightspeed Systems Vice President of Marketing Amy Bennett. “With these new solutions, our customers will be able to kick off the 2016/2017 school year with confidence. Their devices will be optimized, their students will be safe, and their time can be spent on teaching and learning instead of managing technology.”

Since 1999, the company has enhanced its product line with the features schools need in the ever-adapting world of educational technology.
