Mobile Device Management
As your school’s technology becomes decentralised through 1:1 ownership and BYOD programs, management of school devices can become a difficult task. However, it is important that schools maintain some level of control over devices that students and staff bring on campus to ensure that they have access to wireless network infrastructure, e-Learning material and the relevant applications for their lessons.
MDM, or Mobile Device Management, are a suite of tools that Schools and Educators can utilise to manage School and Student owned iPads and Notebooks from a centralised dashboard.
There are many different types of Mobile Device Management suites available on the market, some that are accessible through the internet, and others that are setup within the school as a separate server. Depending on the size of your IT program, the functionalities your school requires, and budget will all affect which MDM provider is right for you. MyMac Education works with different providers and can help find the best solution for your school.
There are many benefits in having a Mobile Device Management Suite, including:
- Distribution of Apps to iPads through the Volume Purchase Program
- Ability to have your iPads set-up straight out of the box with the DEP program.
- Centralised management of the entire fleet of School Owned, 1:1 and BYOD Student and Staff iPads and Notebooks.
- Configure Email Accounts.
- Restrict access to particular websites and content.
- Plus much more.
Speak to us today about how we can help your school plan and deploy a new MDM service to help manage your school’s technology.

School Financing Options
My Mac Education are able to provide a range of Finance options for schools looking purchase our full range of products.
Financing can be an excellent way to help make your IT budget go even further, by reducing your upfront costs so that you have more funds available to put towards other important projects, like Professional Development and strengthening your Network Infastructure.
There are two types of Financing that we can help facilitate:
Hire-Purchase: Pay off large purchases in regular instalments over a fixed period of time. Hire Purchase agreements usually have an interest component, but the customer can usually buy out the equipment at the end of the Finance period for a small fee.
Chattel Mortgage: Pay a regular instalment amount over a fixed period of time, and then roll over the equipment to new equipment at the end of the finance period. In certain circumstances the finance may contain a negative interest rate, meaning that you might not have to pay the full value of the products.
