Why access control for mobile device storage could be your best friend.

Educational institutions have a long list of priorities to manage with Security near the top. Security requirements cover people and premises as well as data and not forgetting resources. When it comes to security for both site and students, Schools, colleges and Universities have a range of access control solutions at their disposal, using a comprehensive range of readers, controllers and software systems.

The management and control needs of educational establishments are such that they are increasingly using sophisticated database systems to capture and analyse a broad range of information – including, for example, attendance records and academic performance. Information systems such as these form an integral part of timetable planning and the development and review of the curriculum, as well as providing a link to budgetary and financial management packages.  The information allows school managers to review, analyse and report on a wide range of data for staff and pupils.

In addition to these operational management and financial analysis requirements, schools are increasingly reviewing their access control needs and looking to integrate and, where appropriate rationalise, their often disparate systems – either by introducing new modules into an existing system, or by consolidating previously standalone processes and procedures.

With this complexity comes a requirement for a specific expertise in the integration of access control solutions with proprietary management information systems.

The ideal is one solution that will streamline access control, time and attendance, student accounts as well as monitoring and managing access to resources. And all this whilst maintaining a high level of security, throughout an institution.

Each school features its own set of ever-changing idiosyncrasies and unique challenges requiring flexible system architectures to satisfy each site’s demands.  With administration departments constantly seeking other creative ways to leverage current infrastructures, the academic services industry serve their identification needs by providing unique solutions to help educational institutions secure facilities and improve administrative efficiency to aid in academic excellence. With educational institutions worldwide seeing a significant influx of mobile devices for access by staff, pupils and visitors the administrative burden of managing a significant estate of mobile devices can be further complicated by various means of access. This is often compounded by the fact that these device estates have been added to over a matter of years.

Colleges and universities present unique security challenges; not only does it mean controlling physical access to buildings and events but also includes logical access to resources, at the same time trying to control operational costs and serving the diverse needs of a campus community.

Managed access to educational resources, reducing administrative complexity.

With many establishments looking to industry to help support them administer managed access to resources, this is when access control can improve managed access to educational resources and reduce administrative complexity.

In a college with several different faculties or a secondary school with several different subject departments managing access to mobile devices for each department can be an administrative burden. Whether this is existing device storage solutions or incorporating new solutions into an existing access control system, administration departments expect usage and access data and provision for remotely revised access.

With the increasing security threats among educational institutions coupled with diminishing budgets and intense pressure to cut costs across all levels and departments. Colleges and universities, as well as schools and academies, must contemplate how to keep their sites, pupils and resources safe without breaking the bank. All of which can be easily achieved with the use of brand agnostic hardware, easily integrated into existing management information systems providing security and usage information data whilst offering easy to use access control management.

BETT and ISE 2012 review

Loxit recently returned from exhibiting at #ISE2012 (Integrated systems Europe) at the RAI centre in Amsterdam and #BETT2012 (British Educational Training and Technology Show) at Olympia in London, both of which were very rewarding shows for many reasons. For any business the level of investment to attend such shows is significant and for a business the size of Loxit they represent one of,  if not the largest portion of our marketing expenditure.

There are of course several reasons for exhibiting and attending these types of shows, and this is at the forefront of our minds when both planning and during our time on the stand. There are two main product lines to our business one being “IT security” products and the second being “Audio Visual” mount solutions. Although it has to be said that products from each are applicable to both product lines. None more so than both our iPad (Tablet) charge and sync storage solution and our Hi-Lo® 500 Flip Top™ DisplayLift which we demonstrated at ISE and BETT.

What was very clear is that Loxit has two products in particular which received significant interest and more importantly investment from throughout the world, we had conversations with end users and integrators alike from many different countries about the integration of tablet devices and Interactive large format displays into the #work, #learn and #public environments.

This was echoed by the plethora of major brands introducing the latest tablet and interactive large format displays at both shows, one of which was #Samsung with the Microsoft #Surface #sur40 (on several stands at both shows) and the #galaxytab. Along with of course the #apple #ipad

Our Lapbank iPad charge and sync solution was extremely well received at both shows, we knew of course there is a market for this type of product as we wouldn’t have invested the time and money in making the product in the first place. But I have to say what did come as somewhat of a surprise, was the interest from BETT, during a time of shrinking budgets there was evidence that schools with the necessary budget are already clearly seeing educational benefits and outcomes. Which in turn we are told is helping justify the sometimes significant investment tablet products require to other schools. And furthermore it’s clear this investment is not only coming from the schools themselves but from parents too. Shown by some of the BYOD “bring your own device” initiatives advertised and discussed at BETT this year. At ISE the product was of no less interest with some visitors who are providing tablets to aid both customers and its own employees, surprised that such a product even existed.  The most interesting conversations came from such reactions with people seeing the product as a catalyst to discuss BYOD initiatives with end users and their colleagues.

Our  Hi-Lo® 500 Flip Top™ Display Lift which was designed specifically for use with #multitouch interactive large format displays, also saw significant interest from visitors from around the world. With so many display manufacturers including the likes of #samsung #LG and #Panasonic, as well as a large number of independent solutions providers releasing a raft of interactive large format displays at both shows. To say our flip top was well received is somewhat of an understatement, with us even selling the Flip Top trolley we had on our stand at #ISE2012 to a fellow exhibitor from Scandinavia. Further testament I feel to both the reception our own product receives along with its potential worldwide, as well as the explosion in the #multitouch #interactive media market.
