Futures Community College adopts BYOD - leverages Ericom Software solution to become one of first schools in UK to successfully embrace the trend

-- Remote access to Windows apps from iPads, Androids, laptops, Chromebooks, etc., improves quality of learning and collaboration for students and teachers

DROITWICH, England, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and desktop virtualization solutions, today announced that Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect has enabled Futures Community College to improve access to teaching and learning resources, and to accelerate BYOD adoption. Pupils and teachers taking advantage of the solution's HTML5-based zero RDP client component, AccessNow, can now enjoy instant, browser-based access to Windows-based educational and work applications from any device and any location.

Futures College's IT challenges began five years ago with a requirement to find a way to meet the government's push for a wider use of IT in education, and was even more pronounced as they lacked sufficient funds to replace their 600 aging and low-performing PCs. The College's initial requirements were met by Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView solution for application access. The new AccessNow technology further extends the functionality of PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView and enables a true BYOD deployment.

"We needed a stable and uniform platform for providing access to Windows applications, desktops and services for teachers and pupils. We revamped our IT strategy and sought a flexible ICT solution that would meet our then current needs, but also provide plenty of options for the longer term," recalled David Nettleship, network manager at Futures Community College. "Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect gave us what we wanted for about 40% of the cost of deploying a similar Citrix solution, plus it was much easier to manage and maintain."

"PowerTerm WebConnect accelerated the performance of the college's old PCs, which instantly improved the quality of teaching," said Nettleship. "Our pupils were no longer frustrated by slow PCs; they could engage in lessons fully and complete IT-based tasks during lessons more successfully. And thanks to PowerTerm WebConnect's zero client option, AccessNow, our teachers and pupils can engage in school work and prepare lessons from their personal devices, as well. This is crucial as we predict that the number of their pupil or teacher-owned devices may increase by as much as 50% over the next three years."

Brian Berns, Ericom Software's President and COO commented: "We're thrilled that PowerTerm WebConnect has proven to be a consistently high performing access solution for the college, and also has enabled them to keep pace with changing trends in IT and education, such as BYOD. Our AccessNow zero RDP client technology provides students and pupils with simple and flexible browser-based access to Windows-based applications and virtual desktops, from iPads, Androids, laptops, and any other device using an HTML5-compatible Web browser." Berns added, "Ericom AccessNow runs entirely within browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and any other HTML5-supported browser. It requires no installation of software on the end-user device, significantly reducing IT and helpdesk support costs."
