Educators & Communicators

In today’s world, integrated communications play a vital role in everyday situations across school campuses.  Campus safety,  District-wide telephony, cybersecurity, data compliance and other issues specific to Education are complex with more and more  options emerging as technology evolves. 

Whether you’re a school administrator seeking ways to keep students safe, a Board member reassuring parents who want more accountability, or an IT manager struggling with modernizing and securing communications across multiple campuses,  integrated solutions can solve common problems when successfully deployed and trained for.  How have you prioritized what your District requires to address these challenges, among others?

Many schools and districts have a big problem: their communications systems are not unified. Or, in other words, systems are individually managed, manually operated, and not well integrated. This creates all kinds of avoidable issues:

• Newer technologies are purchased before they are truly needed, so money gets wasted and usable equipment gets abandoned.

• Processes that could be automated and simplified continue to be managed manually, consuming time and energy that could be spent on higher-value tasks.

• In emergency situations, people are put at risk when there’s over-reliance on a single system or when systems aren’t integrated to deliver the fastest deployment response.

Technology Never Sleeps

While technology never stops evolving, it can be challenging to stay on top of the latest trends. From post-crisis reunification best practices to vaping sensors in school facilities, districts are facing issues that require fresh perspectives and staff expertise that take time to develop.

The learning curve presents a challenge for many districts with staff already stretched thinly and on-call 24/7 for user support. Finding a managed services provider (MSP) to alleviate the day-to-day strain is critical to help your internal IT team focus on emerging technology demands. And having a partner who can help evaluate and recommend new solutions based on your organizational needs and funding streams is a valuable asset for any district.
