At the Texas Computer Education Association's Annual SysAdmin conference held in Austin, Coolhead Tech unveiled a unique online marketplace for schools and mid-market companies using Google's G Suite Apps.
Over 200 Texas Educational Technology leaders gathered for The 2016 System Administrator and Technical Support Conference. The day and a half conference was capped with a networking social featuring "Geeks Who Drink" as part of the Grand Opening celebration for the new marketplace at Appsadmins.com.
The Marketplace's specific focus is on Google for Education and G Suite Business customers and fills a void in the Cloud. It's a one stop shop for Business and educations apps, services from Google Certified Administrators and a full selection of devices running Google's Chrome OS.
There are inherent benefits to Chrome devices in large scale deployments and Schools are adopting Google's devices at a record pace. Chromebooks have now surpassed 51% sales in the education market.
In addition to their low cost Schools like Chromebooks for their scalable deployment. Chrome Device Management licenses allow Apps Administrators to centrally manage hundreds of settings and extensions on chromebooks and devices. One drawback, an apps administrator needs to purchase the management console licenses separately and manually assign one to each device when they arrive. Since Chrome devices update frequently an apps administrator typically has to update the OS on each device as well.
Chromebooks with Device Management are great but having to initially update and enroll even a hundred is very time consuming.
Here's a committment to education you don't see every day. K-16 schools ordering more than 50 Chrome devices and licenses can have AppsAdmins.com engineers open, inspect, update and enroll each device at no additional cost. Chromebooks arrive ready for distribution to students and faculty.
The Pre-Enrollment Service for Chromebooks:
The store is owned and managed by Coolhead Tech, A Google Cloud Partner since 2011. Chromebooks, printers and accessories are hand picked by Google Certified Administrators to ensure high quality and compatibility.
