mobile device management (MDM) software
Impero’s MDM software, EdLink, is compatible with Android, iOS and Chrome OS*. EdLink allows schools to manage mobile devices effectively, supporting BYOD and 1:1 schemes while protecting students and their devices.
IT teams are afforded an array of tools to control student-owned and school-owned mobile devices by managing access to content and enabling/disabling settings, as per a school’s requirements and acceptable use policies.
A flexible cloud-based solution, EdLink simplifies the configuration and management of mobile devices for IT teams, while ensuring teaching and safeguarding staff have access to Education Pro’s comprehensive classroom control and online safety tools to keep students focused and protected when using mobile devices. This centralised approach to MDM serves to keep students protected from the myriad risks of working online when using mobile devices to enable learning.

Intelligent SSID, GPS and iBeacon technologies allow schools to control device applications and settings, based on location, applying different rules based on whether a device is in or out of school. Geolocation functionality also helps to quickly locate and recover lost or stolen devices, or, in certain cases, remotely wipe settings.
time and age-based settings
Set up controls based on times of day and/or different year groups, allowing age-appropriate content to be accessed by different pupil groups at different times and enabling/disabling certain settings as required.
app blocking and provisioning
Install or update applications on all devices in bulk, saving valuable time, and centrally control which applications can be used on the device when in school thanks to geolocation technology.
associate devices with users
Simplify reporting by associating devices with user accounts (making it easier to identify who’s who) and viewing data in a real-time dashboard. See other useful information including the location history of devices, non-syncing devices and enable device notifications.
bulk control device settings
Easily make changes to the configuration of devices such as enabling/disabling the camera, enforcing safe search, hiding the user’s location or forcing devices to run in single application mode, keeping you in control.
Powered by Netsweeper, online safety features include keyword detection and internet filtering. For advanced online safety functionality, EdLink should be used in conjunction with Impero Education Pro.
