FirstClass Managed Service for Schools

FirstClass Managed Service for Schools is a subscription based service and part of the KRCS FirstClass Programme for schools. Underpinned by best in class Jamf Pro management tools, leveraging best practice from Apple and controlled by KRCS technicians with a wealth of experience managing devices, a subscription to our FirstClass Managed Service will take all day to day device management tasks away from your school.

From as little as £1.18 per device, per month, a subscription will provide:


Troubleshooting and technical support
App deployment
Access to KRCS 2nd line support
Configuration management
Device management by best in class MDM

Integration with Apple programs and other school systems

Deployment strategy consultation
Setup assistance for Apple deployment programs

In addition to these services, KRCS offer bolt-ons to the FirstClass Managed Service subscription which will give access to:

Scheduled maintenance and consultancy days in your school
Onsite technical assistance days to mentor school staff or assist with device deployments
