    Re: Net Support manager

    NSM Is a joy to use. I've been using it for over 6 years now and it provides such a valuble range of tools (+Net Support School for free!) that mnay previously tedious tasks are now done in very little time at all. I would highly recommend it.

    We have NetSupport School Pro here, obviously doesn't have the bells and whistles of NSM, but a useful tool all the same. The one point I would highlight is that SchoolPro (I don't know if it applies to NSM) can be run from a pupil's pen drive, if your security settings aren't correctly set (ahem).

    From a completely biased point of view

    Theres a reason RM changed to an OEM of NetSupport School 18 months ago and Ranger and ClassLink already OEM NetSupport School.

    Re: Net Support manager

    To start with we will be using SynchronEyes from Smart ... a nice program and gets staff used to ding things differently ... once we have proven it works well we will then look at products that do similar and with added extras ...

    Start small and build on it ...

    Re: Net Support manager

    Thanks everyone for your input I was 99% sure that the product was great and you have confirmed that it is well worth the expense (should reduce time required moving round site) I just need to raise some extra cash, better get my begging face on and see if the bursar has any spare end of year cash.

    Yes. Download th etrail version and roll out 4 clients. The information (auditing, usage, internet monitoring etc) returned is awsome, and all wothout having numeorus products spread over all of your servers. It also does software rollouts

    Re: Net Support manager

    Ok stupid question inc. But where are you getting it from in the UK. I've been looking at this for ages because LanView which I use nw is just not safe to let teachers at and the idea of the classroom and Admin elements together in one package is just fantastic.

    I looked in the reseller list and theres only Ireland there. And I'll say that what they quoted me makes me think you guys are getting it cheaper because no matter how good it is we can't afforde that
