Impero Education Pro
Created in direct response to the challenges IT teams face in the modern learning environment, Education Pro provides a host of network management features, from power management and print management to licence management and computer usage monitoring. Deploying an MSI and launching command prompts, at the click of a button, ensures installations and updates are distributed across groups of machines or the whole network, while inventory management helps you keep track of IT assets, and power management centralises the control of energy usage to maintain efficiency and track savings.
We know that one incident is one too many, and when sourcing an online safety solution, the onus is often put on you. This task, combined with updates to KCSiE around safeguarding being a whole school responsibility, online safety rockets to the top of your agenda. Whether your students are using school equipment on the school grounds or a cyberbullying issue takes place at home, schools need to ensure preventative measures are in place to deal with risk proactively. With keyword detection libraries, real-time monitoring, incident logging and handling, and Confide, an anonymous reporting tool, Impero Education Pro supports schools with its legal duty of care when it comes to safeguarding.
With laptops and mobile devices becoming an integral part of any learning environment, IT teams are often tasked with finding new solutions to help manage and monitor these devices. Designed to work in conjunction with Education Pro, Impero EdLink helps IT teams to manage, track and protect students and their devices. It’s a flexible, cloud-based mobile device management solution which simplifies the configuration and management of both student-owned and school-owned mobile devices. Ultimately, Impero EdLink is designed to save busy IT teams masses of time by enabling application installations or updates to be pushed out to all devices, all from a centralised interface. And with granular reports depicting device usage and online activity, IT teams can simplify mobile device management and help keep students safe.
Compatible with Android, iOS and Chrome OS, EdLink enables school IT teams to control devices and apply rules based on location, in order to support BYOD and 1:1 programmes. Mobile devices can be controlled by managing access to content and enabling/disabling settings, by time and/or age group, and via bulk controlling device settings, such as enforcing safe search or forcing single application mode. Used in conjunction with Education Pro, IT teams can ensure that their teaching colleagues have access to the full suite of classroom control and instruction tools, plus advanced online safety functionality.
Powered by Microsoft’s industry-leading BI engine, Impero Insight enables school IT teams to view a school’s Impero data via a comprehensive, visual dashboard. This data can be reviewed, compared or contrasted to help identify trends, such as safeguarding issues, across individual or multiple school sites. With granular permissions, and the ability to tailor dashboards for different staff members, using secure authentication, Impero Insight ensures that data is secure and the right staff members have access to the right information.
Using Impero Insight, IT teams can support their school in good decision-making, in line with a best practice approach, by reviewing data on a school, classroom or student basis. This ensures that policies, such as those related to online safety or safeguarding, are being followed and any areas which require improvement can be identified and addressed quickly.
