School to benefit from easier software packaging deployment and desktop management


Matrix42 today announced that St Mary’s School Ascot, a leading boarding school for girls, has selected Matrix42’s workspace management solution. The software will be implemented by Matrix42 competence partner Incit Technology and will enable the school to more easily package and deploy software to the school’s devices. St Mary’s School Ascot is one of the most prestigious Roman Catholic girls school in the UK.  IT is a key part of the classroom and all pupils typically use a laptop or mobile device.  The school makes extensive use of laptops and tablets, and ensuring these devices are kept up to date can be challenging.  St Mary’s School Ascot previously used a well-known IT management solution, however, it was proving to be challenging to deploy software effectively with the latest version.Incit Technology, a Matrix42 competence partner, recommended the workspace management solution from Matrix42.  The school’s evaluation included a detailed demo and a Proof of Concept day which involved deploying live software to the school’s hardware.  St Mary’s School Ascot also took advantage of Matrix42’s cloud-based trial to more fully explore the software’s range of functionality. The school chose Matrix42 Corporate as a flexible and future proof solution to its requirements.Kevin Delaney, IT Support Manager, St Mary’s School Ascot commented, “We regularly deploy software such as operating systems to new devices.  We therefore have a real need to efficiently package and deliver software to these machines.  The Matrix42 workspace management solution met and exceeded our expectations.  We were impressed by the ease of use, comprehensive software packaging and deployment capabilities.”Stuart Power, Sales Manager UK said, “I am delighted to welcome St Mary’s School Ascot to the growing number of educational clients that rely on Matrix42 workspace management solutions.  Effective use of IT is a key requirement in this sector and our proven range of physical, virtual, mobile and compliance solutions enable easier and more flexible management of the corporate workspace.  The school will benefit from simplified deployment of software and hardware inventory management.”Steve Massie, Owner, Incit Technology added, “Building systems and deploying, configuring and patching software are everyday IT tasks which can benefit hugely from automation and process optimization. There are many ways to do this today and numerous tools available.
