Actua is a national charity that aims to prepare todays youth with foundational skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The organization provides youth with experiences that build critical skills and confidence so they can purse any career path and be strong innovators and leaders.
Currently, Actua has programs in every province and territory across Canada. They use Apple iPads in their year-round coding and digital skills camps, clubs and workshops for youth in Kindergarten to Grade 12 schools and communities.
Actua found themselves spending a lot of time and money shipping iPads back and forth to us in order to do things like implement updates, add new apps or change passwords. There had to be a more efficient way to do these things.
Our team looked into different mobile device management systems. With iPads spread across the country from Nunavut to Nova Scotia, we needed a way that we could manage these devices from our office in Ottawa. After consideration, we decided that the best option would be to implement Jamf Pro, an Apple Device Management system.
With Jmaf Pro we are able to troubleshoot and keep Actua’s Apple devices up to date and secure. Meanwhile, the devices will always have the proper resources, apps and services that the organization needs.
There are a variety of things we can now do to Actua’s iPads from our Ottawa office no matter where the iPad is located. Here are a few of the essential ones that Actua has seen benefit from:
The implementation of Jamf Pro has eliminated the hassle of having to ship iPads back and forth from Ottawa when they needed work to be done on them. We can now take a proactive approach to manage any Macs, iPads or iPhones that Actua has across the country.
