Providing IT Support to Public Safety Departments

Tracking and Recovering Moving Assets
In 2009, Shenandoah University implemented the iMLearning initiative, a two to one technology program that has proven to be very successful and very popular with students and their families. Over the nine years of iMLearning’s existence, more than 22,000 devices have been issued to students, faculty and staff.

An important piece of this story is that the equipment is leased for eight semesters and students take these devices with them when they leave campus for all breaks. These assets are constantly in motion. A consistent issue has been asset recovery when students fail to meet the requirements of the equipment lease.

After multiple attempts and mixed success, with JAMF Pro, Shenandoah University has had much improved and more immediate success at asset recovery and resolution. The presentation will explore where iMLearning began and how it has progressed in the nine years of its existence as well as the financial implications of the improved process.
