Solution Brief

Building a Successful 1:1 Technology Program Involves More
than Just Devices

In today’s ever-changing world, the education system is being asked to create virtual classrooms in situations where there may not be the technology or support systems in place. Making large, complex device deployments look simple and supporting educators is where we excel; which is why we have created Stratix SmartMobile for Education.

Whether you need devices or already have them in hand, Stratix leverage our mobile expertise, extensive partner ecosystem and full suite of SmartMobile Services to support the ‘virtual’ classroom experience and ensure it works out of the box for each student.

We understand the challenges with implementing a successful virtual learning environment:

  • Speed and Scale. Securing, or onboarding large volumes of devices, rapidly deploying and supporting those devices on mass no easy task
  • Cost and Control. There is a delicate balance that needs to be struck that reduces budget risk but maintains a high-level of control & visibility
  • Safety and Security. Providing learning in a virtual environment introduces new considerations for process and safeguards for students
  • Sustainability. A 1:1 program isn’t one and done, it’s an investment that can reap benefits long into the future when it’s planned for

  • We are experts at complex deployments and managing every last detail at scale
