If your school district is investing in student laptops, this webinar will help you solve the most critical security and accountability challenges. Laptop theft is rampant in schools. Keeping inventory is nearly impossible when laptops are on the move. In this free webinar, Klein ISD’s Chief Technology Officer will explain how she faced these challenges and why she believes a laptop tracking solution is a must-have for any 1:1 computing program.

With 37 schools and a growth rate of 16% per year, Klein decided to equip over 6,000 students with tablet PCs protected by Computrace from Absolute Software. Using the tamper-resistant tracking technology, Klein ISD has saved countless dollars preventing theft and managing its PC inventory across several schools.

Learn how one of America’s leading school districts:
- Instantly inventories all of their tablet PCs whether at school or elsewhere
- Tracks and recovers stolen computers
- Detects unauthorized software and student hardware tampering
- Effectively plans for new computer and software license purchases
