Absolute Software Provides Comprehensive Device-Agnostic Solutions To Enable School District Student Computing Initiatives

Onsite at the Florida Educational Technology Conference Absolute Software Demos the Value of their Product Portfolio for K12

VANCOUVER AND ORLANDO, FL, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - ( FETC 2013 - Booth #407) Absolute® Software Corporation (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security, management and service solutions for computer, tablet and smartphone  devices and data will be at Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC) 2013 in Orlando, Florida. Absolute Software has provided schools, and other educational organizations with solutions to enable mobile student computing for nearly two decades.

Absolute Software's award winning education product suite consists of:

  • Absolute Computrace® to protect school data, devices, and students
  • Absolute Manage to manage, configure, deploy, and enable Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, apps and content
  • Absolute Service to enable IT to effectively support their computing initiatives

With Absolute Software's full suite in place, our customers are able to significantly reduce their computing risk profile, to keep their students safe, to comply with bond requirements, to provide a seamless and well-managed student learning experience, to efficiently and effectively respond to incidents, and to do so with low single-vendor costs and overheads to allow more time and budget for learning.

Computrace is used by schools across the nation to centrally track, locate, and secure IT assets within a single cloud-based console. Computrace includes a theft management service that allows schools to deter theft, recover these expensive learning tools and preserve their publically-funded budgets. This is a must-have solution for keeping students safe when providing them with computing devices. Of the 13,000+ successful device recoveries undertaken in 2011 by Absolute Software, the top location for theft was public schools. Through our theft management services, we have reduced theft rates within our customer base to below one percent, with some customers starting with theft rates as high as nine percent. Read the Absolute Computer Theft Report for more details.

Absolute Manage for endpoint management natively supports the most popular computing devices (Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone) within a single easy-to-use console. Leveraging the tracking capability of Computrace, and as the only true cross-platform management solution on the market, Absolute Manage has become a popular solution for schools managing computers and tablet devices in a 1:1 environment so students can realize the benefits of these computing assets. In addition, the power management capabilities allow schools to qualify for government rebates that provide additional savings.
