METC 2015—St. Charles Missouri

Posted by Kyle Yardley

metcMissouri is commonly known as the “Show-Me-State.” This week I attended METC 2015 in St. Charles, and it was all about showing off technology-based products that help improve schools and classrooms throughout the Midwest. I was fortunate enough to share our printer management solution that eliminates print servers and enables centrally managed direct IP printing.

IT personnel from many of the districts I spoke with were in the midst of implementing their 1:1 initiative. They shared their concerns about the difficulty students, faculty and staff have printing from a myriad of devices. They were happy to learn that our solution makes it easy to print from popular devices, including iPads, Androids, Chromebooks and more. Also popular was our self-installation portal that empowers users to install their own printers from an intuitive floor plan map without the need to call IT for help—a particular concern for teachers.

It was clear that the District and IT leaders I spoke with were very interested in finding the technologies that will be used to empower their students. We are proud to be part of that equation.

If you haven’t already, let us give you a demo so you can see for yourself how we are working with major education customers to eliminate print servers, empower IT and teachers, cut costs and enhance the learning environment.
