Impero Education Pro question - No suppliers please!
*EDIT: Possibly wrong forum!*
Can I just ask those that use this software, whether it is worth using?
We have had a message that this will be available to purchase by the School soon. We have had no issues that I know of regarding pupil useage and I keep up with day to day, update/print/patch management etc. As you do in the role of an IT tech.
However lately I have been looking into remote access, SCCM, print management, power management and a lot of the things mentioned in the 'sales' list. I am really liking the 'look' of it from an lonely do-it-all/NM/tech's role position.

between a number of computers, cutting down on the amount being spent on software and essentially
providing more for less. Acting as your virtual licence manager, the intelligent monitoring functionality
highlights how many licences are being used and restricts access to the software before this exceeds its
Patch management – ICT Technicians can quickly and easily keep software up-to-date and automatically
patch all vulnerable software, to the latest version, saving valuable staff hours from the laborious manual
Desktop utilization - reports the utilisation patterns of specific devices by monitoring usage, ensuring value
for money from all devices and supporting refresh plans and budgets.
