Managed Service for Schools by KRCS

FirstClass Managed Service for Schools

The four key pillars of our Managed Service for Schools will ensure iPads & Mac are perfectly setup and ready-to-teach. You won’t need anyone with technical know-how in your school - leave it to us to make it work - first time, every time.

How does it work?

FirstClass Managed Service for Schools is a subscription based remote service (zero touch deployment) and part of the KRCS FirstClass Programme. Underpinned by best in class Jamf Pro management tools and leveraging best practice from Apple, we manage new deployments as well as existing Apple devices in schools.

The KRCS technicians, who have a wealth of experience managing iPad and Mac, take all day-to-day device management away from your school when you subscribe to Managed Service for Schools. All device management is undertaken over-the-air.

Professional Services for Education

If you prefer to manage your own devices or need additional support using Jamf School or Jamf Safe Internet, we offer alternative Professional Services for Education.

Support

Our Managed Service reduces IT Technicians workload so they have more time to manage and administer other systems within the institution. Meanwhile, pupils and teachers enjoy the benefits of preconfigured devices, using apps they need, straight away.

Jamf Safe Internet

Safe, secure & compliant

A choice of Jamf Safe Internet or Securly Filter is also included as part of our Managed Service, free of charge. This is on-device content filtering, allowing students to learn safely anywhere - school, home, café or even tethered to a mobile phone, worldwide.

Subscription

We also offer a school compliant operating lease. You could build the ideal classroom technology bundle, with the latest devices and subscribe to our Managed Service safe in the knowledge that your devices will be managed, updated and maintained for the life of the subscription which can be 1, 2 or 3 years.

Sustainability

Keeping your devices up-to-date

It’s more important than ever to keep the operating system and applications up to date on a Mac; to protect data, comply with industry standards, and achieve accreditations like Cyber Essentials, which tell others that cyber security is taken seriously.

Apple have made it even easier to apply important security fixes to macOS Ventura or later with the Rapid Security Response mechanism which significantly streamlines the installation process.

Update Infographic

Keeping applications up to date is more difficult because of the various ways that an app can be installed on Mac, but thankfully our FirstClass Managed Service for education and BusinessClass Managed Service powered by Jamf Pro are here to keep the operating system and apps up to date on Mac.
