CentraStage Hits Milestone Managing London Schools
CentraStage Hits Milestone Managing London Schools' ICT

November 19, 2013 8:04AM
CentraStage signs up its 100,000th device as part of its long term support of school ICT across London -- CentraStage’s low cost cloud-based remote monitoring and management (RMM) service now manages ICT for over 1700 schools in London -- Widespread adoption showcases how cloud technology can transform frontline services whilst reducing cost in the Public and Private Sectors

London (19 November, 2013) - CentraStage, the cloud-based endpoint management technology, today announced that the London Grid for Learning has connected over 100,000 devices to its remote monitoring and management service as part of the ongoing IT support for London schools.

CentraStage is the chosen IT device management technology on the London Grid for Learning Trust’s (LGfL) 2.0 service portfolio and offers a market-leading IT management solution to LGfL’s 2500 customers across Greater London. CentraStage were awarded the LGfL contract last year after facing competition from Kaseya and Microsoft System Centre.

Amongst the school IT service providers taking advantage of CentraStage are 14 London Local Authorities, including: the ‘Tri-borough’ partnership (Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea and Hammersmith & Fulham), Islington, Hackney, Sutton, Hillingdon, Merton, Camden, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth, Croydon, Greenwich and Newham.

CentraStage also works with all of the major managed service providers who service schools in Greater London, including Joskos, Structured Network Services, Click on it London, Strictly Education, SBS (School Business Services), Trusol and TurnITOn.

Stage is designed to run on any device including servers, PCs, laptops, tablets, electronic whiteboards and smartphones, meaning IT service providers have centralised visibility and control of all devices in the schools that they support. CentraStage also enables LGfL’s customers to manage mixed fleets of Android, Windows, Apple iOS and Apple OSX devices, with IT managers able to quickly and easily enroll and secure devices, and then manage them on an ongoing basis.

The CentraStage technology enables IT service providers to ensure devices in schools are secure, patched, stable and fit for purpose, ultimately reducing downtime and cost, and helping boost pupil attainment through the effective provision of ICT [information and communications technology].

Client Testimonials

Darren King, Network Manager, London Borough of Sutton: “Our organisation supports over 3500 devices that are operating on multiple platforms and across a number of customer sites, so having a device management solution that can be independent of our existing network structures is vital to us. We have been using Centrastage for over 4 years and we can’t get over its simplicity and flexibility.

“The simple user interface provides my team with an easy to use tool for providing remote support to customers quickly and efficiently. The platform’s range of features also helps us to fix a range of more demanding issues. We tried multiple systems, but CentraStage was the only tool we trialled that met our requirements for device management, monitoring and immediate user support at no extra cost and requiring little more than a day to roll out.” (continued...)
