Mobile Device Management Solution Increases Scalability
TabPilot Learning Systems, a company that designs classroom management tools for IT administrators and teachers, has released an update to its mobile device management solution. The latest version of TabPilot offers increased scalability to enable districts to handle thousands of new devices across multiple schools at once.
Version 6.0 “easily scales to handle large districts with thousands of devices at each school location,” according to TabPilot. The company was able to accomplish this by “introducing a new district-level structure that allows individual school locations to be created and managed either centrally or independently within a district, rather than having separate accounts per school.”
Now, districts can share VPP and DEP accounts across multiple schools. They can also “define settings, policies and even network configurations district-wide,” whereas previous versions required these items to be configured separately for each school.
“Our system has always been hosted on AWS, Amazon’s world-class system, to allow for high performance, high availability, and virtually unlimited scalability on the back end,” said Jarrett Volzer, TabPilot founder and president, in a statement. “With version 6.0 the front-end organization now makes the large-scale deployments easy to manage while maintaining the ease-of-use that has been making TabPilot a popular choice for schools.”
