CTL’s full service Chromebook lifecycle management solutions for K-12 schools and school districts now includes device tracking! Starting today, CTL will provide a free license to HiddenApp with each Chromebook purchased by an eligible customer*. HiddenApp integrates with your organization’s Google Chrome Admin Console to enable device location tracking and geo-fencing. Device tracking can help schools reduce device theft and loss.
“Keeping track of schools' devices is vitally important to ensure students are always engaged and well equipped for success,” notes Erik Stromquist, CEO of CTL. “We know many of our customers have had challenges managing lost or stolen devices for a myriad of reasons including changing student enrollments. That’s why we teamed up with HiddenApp to offer a solution to help IT administrators know where each device is at all times. We believe our offering will help our customers reduce cost, improve ROI and lead to long term sustainability.”
Designed for K-12, HiddenApp helps monitor, track and locate schools’ key IT assets without compromising privacy - all easily accessed from one user-friendly Google Admin Console integrated dashboard. The app provides schools with a much more efficient way to manage device lifecycles as well as retrieve lost or stolen Chromebooks. And, with such features as geofencing, even devices with students who have transferred to another school or district can be tracked and retrieved.
HiddenApp features include:
- Customized Geofencing alerts
- Highly accurate geolocation tracking built on Google Maps
- Flexible device protection
- Complements your existing tech
- Fast, easy enrollment via Google Admin Console integrations
- Cross-platform support: Chromebook, Apple, Windows
- Enhances mobile device management
“At CTL, we value our customers as partners with a shared goal of making life easier for students, teachers and IT administrators.” added Sromquist. “HiddenApp is just one of the ways we work to unlock the potential of technology and deliver budget-friendly, tailored solutions backed by swift, friendly service and support.”
Chromebook tracking is the latest addition to CTL’s suite of Chromebook lifecycle management solutions, which includes discounted demo devices, free Google Zero Touch Enrollment, 5-day guaranteed device repair, self-repair options, end-of-life Chromebook buy-back, and a ChromeOS as a Service (CaaS) option - all with an eye towards helping schools build sustainable 1:1 Chromebook programs.
The one year free license for HiddenApp is available while supplies last.
