Mac Management Software for Higher Education

Setting a new standard in higher education

We started building software in our IT department at the University of Wisconsin—Eau Claire to manage Macs. Our goal was to automate all the things we were responsible for doing on a daily basis.

Give faculty and students the tools they need

Creative & Powerful

Give faculty, staff, and students the Mac experience they prefer 

Mac is a common sight on college campuses and has been for years. The combination of great design, power, and intuitive user experience make it an easy choice for faculty, staff, and students alike. MacBook offers all-day productivity in a compact case. And the Mac Pro remains the tool of choice for research and creative arts that require maximum desktop computing power.

For all the reasons that education professionals choose Mac, they rely on IT professionals to support them. And IT needs the right macOS mobile device management (MDM) tools and technologies to make it a great experience on both ends.

Automation

Equip your IT support team with tools for automation 

Deliver a great Mac support experience for all users across campus—or around the world. With macOS MDM from the Casper Suite, automate the common tasks that consume IT support resources and allow your teams to focus on the projects that advance your educational mission.

Reduce help desk support calls for frequent issues like software updates, printers, or network configuration. Make use of your existing user and group directory to automate tasks across a department, college, or entire campus.

Compliance & Data Privacy

Keep sensitive data private and safe 

University hospitals, bursars, registrars, professors, and students all have sensitive data that must be protected. IT is under increasing scrutiny from administrators to deliver on data privacy and compliance requirements.

With the macOS MDM in place, IT security and compliance becomes standard operating procedure. You can build security configurations into Mac deployment workflows, demonstrate compliance through dynamic inventory, and set alerts for any deviation.

User Experience 

The Apple experience users expect 

Your users chose Mac for a reason: intuitive user interface, great design, and powerful productivity. The Mac App Store shows a path for how simple the task of choosing and installing software can be. Bring that familiar workflow to your IT service delivery with Casper Suite Self Service: an app and IT service catalog custom tailored for your users.

Implementation

Turn "what if?" into "what next?" 

Whether you're supporting a department, a college, or a full university system, you need the right ideas, people, and technology—in that order. Put your project on the right path by partnering with Apple IT experts from JAMF Software. 

Give your staff the training and certification opportunities they need to build new skills and gain the efficiency that comes with experience. Join a community of IT professionals focused on supporting Apple in education. And know that when questions arise, a team of support engineers is available to lend a hand.
