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.
