This month, NetSupport took part in a Q&A session with The Educator magazine to uncover why IT Asset Management solutions are so important for schools.
From cost savings, improving learning outcomes and safeguarding students, ITAM solution NetSupport DNA was highlighted as a 3-in-1 solution providing something for all stakeholders across a school or Trust.
To help schools to discover where they can save money, we explain: “[NetSupport DNA] identifies hardware items that are upgradable rather than needing to be replaced. Through our application metering component, it registers what software licences are deployed and, importantly, which ones are being used effectively. This allows schools to make informed decisions about whether to renew the annual maintenance on software licences, or whether to uninstall and redeploy them to different parts of the school – or the broader Trust – instead."
Next, we describe the concept behind the eSafety module: “NetSupport DNA was developed with safeguarding professionals for safeguarding professionals. Designed to be operated independently of the IT team, it has a blend of proactive and reactive functions."
And finally, we highlight the classroom management tools: "It’s a dedicated classroom management and instructional tool, with specialist features for teachers to not only monitor, collaborate with and control student activity – but its set of Ofsted-based assessment tools also means it is focused on learning outcomes."
