HEAT Software, a leading provider of Cloud Service Management and Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) software solutions, today announced that its new LANrev 7.2 software integrates seamlessly with Apple’s newest education technology: Apple School Manager. HEAT LANrev – client and enterprise mobility management software — offers the deepest, most comprehensive integration with Apple School Manager available. LANrev’s intelligent automation enables non-technical users such as teachers to maximise digital learning tools in the classroom without having to master IT tasks. Now in public preview, Apple School Manager(ASM) is a web portal with resources for primary and secondary school district IT administrators to deploy iPads and Macs in schools, create Managed Apple IDs for all students and staff, configure device enrollment settings, and easily buy and distribute apps, books, and learning materials. “We’ve long led the market with innovative endpoint management,” said Tim Williams, Director of Product Marketing at HEAT Software. “Now, leveraging the power of LANrev’s intelligent automation within Apple’s education ecosystem, we’re excited to empower a new generation of learning in the digital classroom.” The software’s market-leading integration with ASM manages and delivers all of the learning content, licences, and class roster information from Apple’s portal to the students, teachers and classrooms where it is needed seamlessly, quickly and automatically. LANrev automatically integrates teacher, student, and classroom data from ASM with Active Directory, Open Directory, and LANrev’s own asset inventory data to configure class rosters and assign the appropriate educational content through dynamic Smart Policies. That means, for example, that a 7th-grade science teacher could create a digital lesson plan on photosynthesis and deliver content and quizzes just to his or her students’ class iPads, while a high-school math teacher can lock all devices into “assessment mode” to give an in-class calculus test. Along with its native, policy-based management of mobile devices, LANrev makes it easy for IT administrators to solve the challenge of configuring devices, users, apps, and settings of iPads used in specific classes in a school district. In addition, LANrev 7.2 helps school IT administrators configure and manage multi-user iPads so schools can safeguard hardware by keeping it within the classroom. That allows settings and apps to follow students — rather than devices — from class to class. Multi-user configurations also allow budget-constrained schools to extend the benefits of Apple’s powerful classroom technology to more students.
