Demand for Jamf in schools increase as users see the benefits

OPAL customers are increasingly turning to Jamf Pro as a management tool for their Apple devices, with it’s zero touch deployment being a key benefit to both users and IT support staff.

As Jamf increases it’s presence on a global scale, OPAL and our Jamf Integrators are on hand to assist with support and deployment.  The use of Apple in education is becoming increasingly common – schools often have hundreds or even thousands of Macs, iPads and iPhones that need to be managed, and Jamf Pro (formerly Casper Suite) is a market leader in meeting this demand.

August was a particularly busy month for the team here with a number of schools (both state and independent) taking up the solution during the summer holidays.

Michael Thomson, Opal’s Director explains:

“We’ve noticed in particular an increase in demand for Jamf in schools. I’ve personally been working with schools from Edinburgh all the way down to the South East coast of England.

Coping with updates to applications and ensuring security is in place on various Apple devices can become quite a headache.  Jamf Pro was developed to help you maintain centralised control over your Mac computers and iOS devices, and its success in both schools and businesses is proving that it achieves just that.”

In a nutshell, there are five key benefits to having Jamf to manage your Apple devices:

  • It’s becomes so much quicker and easy to deploy Macs and iOS devices (DEP)
  • It helps safeguard users
  • You can easily deploy and manage applications (VPP)
  • It reduces licensing and support costs
  • It saves so much business or teaching time – impacting on productivity
