Today, much of the work done by students and teachers is done through school computers and personal devices. Additionally, more university and K-12 students are learning remotely than ever before.

Students and faculty rely on their computers, laptops, tablets, and other mobile devices to get their work done. This is especially true in remote learning environments.

If a student’s device runs into an issue, their ability to get their coursework done is greatly diminished. Likewise, teachers and professors will have a hard time getting their job done if their devices aren’t working properly.

Therefore, it is critical that IT support teams for schools, districts, and colleges are able to quickly troubleshoot and fix these issues. IT teams need to be able to provide fast support to both school computers, and the personal devices of students and faculty.

This is no easy task. Tech support teams at many educational institutions receive numerous support tickets each day. Plus, tight budgets and minimal staffing can make it difficult to keep up.

With those challenges in mind, it is paramount that IT teams are equipped with the right tools that enable them to provide fast support to students and staff.
