1-to-1 Laptop Program: Deployment Software for Successful Technology Initiatives in Schools
“DiSTRiBU-Q is a cloud-based solution to circumvent the hurdles of managing 1-to-1 laptop program deployment, distribution, repair tracking, communication to all stakeholders and dealing disciplinary issues related to device mishandling and misuse.”
1-to-1 Laptop Program Deployment Success Begins With Our Cloud-Based Distribution Software Solution
When it comes to school-wide initiatives, educators spend a lot of time discussing the process and what to prepare in order to make the deployment of technology in schools as smooth as possible. A 1-to-1 laptop program deployment (also know as 1:1 initiative) is no different from others that schools are tackling recently. While it is a noble endeavor to pursue the smoothest laptop program deployment possible, our team at Administrative Software Solutions works very hard to lessen the burdens of the implementation. Our aim in doing so is to allow educators to spend more time doing what they do best, teach students on the proper use of the technology tools. Our research lead to the creation of a cloud-based software solution that takes away the burden of the distribution, repair tracking, communication to all stakeholders about the devices selected for the one-to-one laptop initiative, and dealing with disciplinary issues related to device mishandling and misuse.
Benefits to Admin and IT Support
Distribu-Q is created to help school technology administrators in the deployment of 1-to-1 laptop programs. This is a unique and complicated undertaking. Our aim is to lessen the burden of deployment by creating a software solution to meet the needs of IT Support in administering the 1:1 (one-to-one) technology initiative specifically designed for school environments. Distribu-Q helps the IT support keep track of disciplinary issues related to the device and communicate via automatic emails to school administrators.
Benefits to Help Desk Staff
Our click and go interface offers real-time updates to the databases and no need for advanced skills or knowledge using Excel, Google spreadsheets or other databases. This allows office personnel a chance to provide efficient primary technical support in the least amount of time possible. DiSTRiBU-Q not only helps your personnel with the 1-to-1 laptop program deployment, but with repair tracking, communication to all stakeholder and dealing the disciplinary issues related to device mishandling and misuse.
Benefits to Business Office Personnel
Our solution keeps track of the repair status of the device and is designed to record the cost of the repair as well. If you wish, the latter can be communicated digitally to the appropriate business office personnel so that they can begin the billing and payments process for these repairs. Communication is key when it comes to dealing with any technology initiative and DiSTRiBU-Q provides a built-in communication solution that will automatically communicate the repair cost to the appropriate person.
Benefits to Parents or Guardians
Distribu-Q is designed for 1-to-1 laptop program deployment in schools. Parents play a major role in the education of their children. Since this equipment can be costly and any repair falls on the shoulders of the parents, Distribu-Q is capable of keeping parents informed via email about the type of equipment checked out, the repair status of the device and the costs associated with each repair. In addition, Distribu-Q keeps a running record of the disciplinary issues related to the improper handling of the device.
Benefits to Your Students
Students are affected most by 1-to-1 laptop program deployment and technology initiatives. The faster one can get the right device in the hands of students, the better. Distribu-Q is optimized to: make the checkout of the equipment efficient; inform the students of the repair status and keep track of all items checked out including loaner devices. By keeping track of the disciplinary issues related to the device and automatic communication to administrators, students will less likely come to school unprepared to use the devices.
