Hanover School District in Pennsylvania has selected Ericom’s AccessNow to implement one-to-one computing and BYOD. Ericom’s AccessNow will help the Hanover School District provide high school students with browser-based access to hosted Windows applications and desktops from Chromebooks, laptops and tablets. AccessNow is an HTML5 RDP client and is picked by the educational institute due to its high performance, flexibility, and ease of implementation and use.
In a press release, David Fry, technology director for Hanover Public School District said, “Ericom AccessNow fits right in with our 1:1 and Hybrid computing vision. We needed a simple, installation-free solution to allow students using Chromebooks or any other device to easily access Pennsylvania Department of Education Classroom Diagnostic Tools (CDT (News - Alert)), Microsoft Office, Microsoft Access, and other hosted Windows apps.”
Ericom AccessNow does not require any additional installation of software on the end-user device. It runs entirely within any HTML5 compatible browser such as Chrome, Firefox and Safari. The Ericom AccessNow is an ideal solution for Hanover and other K-12 school districts seeking to implement BYOD. The solution easily offers the greatest number of students with quick access to Web / Windows-based applications and desktops, on any end-user device supporting an HTML5 browser.
Brian Berns, Ericom Software's president and COO, said, “We're pleased that AccessNow has been chosen to help Hanover reach its goals of implementing 1:1 computing and BYOD. As a zero client, AccessNow will provide Hanover High School with simple, affordable and flexible access to Windows-based educational resources from Chromebooks and other devices. More and more K-12 districts and universities are discovering the benefits of Ericom AccessNow and taking advantage of Ericom's special pricing program for Education that accommodates their budgets.”
