    LanSchool was our preferred option when we looked at classroom management a couple of years ago - we didn't get on with ABTutor (problems with install, not as user friendly) and NetSupport was too expensive and far more than we required. LanSchool works brilliantly, looks good, and is a one off purchase - no year-on-year support.

    No experience (yet), but I'm looking too and another one I came across is Ranger Remote Control reviewed in PC Pro

    AB tutor is the best, it's also much cheaper and it does a really good job.

    Policy Central Business & Education Internet Monitoring software - Policy Central Enterprise but I do know it does't do the classroom management aspect. So you would need a additional app such as AB Tutor to cover that base.

    You would also need application/url blocking, print,power and patch management if you are truly replacing Impero as policy central is just a e-safety monitoring solution.

    AB Tutor (currently use, works great does the job), Ranger, LANSchool,

    However finding a product that does everything Impero does will be hard if not impossible! the features are amazing however the price is not. I would like to see a "lite" version where you can pick the add ons.

    +1. I would like the option to use Impero purely as a classroom management and support tool and be able to choose not to have things such as the print, power and patch management to save money.
