Schools across New York can now choose Impero to manage student devices

 Austin, TX, Oct. 10, 2019 – Impero Software, a specialist provider of remote monitoring and management software for education, has received a contract from the Erie 1 BOCES in New York to be listed as an approved classroom management vendor. This allows districts who are served by Erie 1 BOCES, and all school districts across New York, to choose Impero to manage classroom devices based on a specified price.

Erie 1 BOCES offers school districts access to vetted products via a negotiated rate.  Schools can now purchase the software without having to go out to bid, allowing them to implement classroom management software in a more timely fashion.

“Erie 1 BOCES put our offering to the test and found it met or exceeded its requirements for the management of classroom devices,” said Michael Watt, senior vice president of U.S. sales for Impero Software. “The BOCES takes the leg work out of selecting quality products for school districts and works to get them the best price available to ensure they are able to implement the latest technologies at an affordable price.”

Impero’s classroom management software provides multi-device monitoring, including the ability to remotely view, manage and control devices such as Chromebooks, Windows, Mac and iOS to support schools with 1:1 programs. Teachers can monitor students’ screens in real time, share content with students, and control or lock student devices to keep students focused. Impero integrates with Google Classroom, ClassLink and Clever and provides messaging features.

Statewide, New York school districts partner with Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in an effort to provide accountability, municipal sharing, efficiency and educational equity. Erie 1 BOCES, one of 37 BOCES in New York State, is a cooperative of 19 school districts surrounding the city of Buffalo. To assist school districts, the organization provides a variety of educational services, including alternative education; career and technical education; communications; health and safety; human resources; labor relations; business office functions; policy; professional development; special education; and technology support.
