SYNNEX Offers Google Chrome Management Console and Services

The offering will help solution providers centrally manage Chromebooks and related products and services for K-12 schools.

SYNNEX Corporation has entered into a strategic relationship with Google Inc. to bring the Google Chrome Management Console and related services to the North American channel. The console and services will help solution providers deploy and centrally manage Chromebooks and adjacent products and services for their school district and commercial customers.

Chromebooks combined with the management console create a new education solution to enable K-12 schools to deliver a better learning platform, according to the Fremont, Calif.-based IT distributor. Reducing expenses is a major selling point, the company says, but “the value of creating more instructional time in the classroom available to educators by using a device that boots up in less than 10 seconds cannot be underestimated.” The Chrome Management Console is verified for Common Core standardized testing.

“In addition to offering a turnkey solution around Chrome, solution providers can manage this business through SYNNEX’s Chrome-specific CLOUDSolv marketplace,” says Eddie Franklin, vice president of sales, public sector, and vertical markets at SYNNEX. “This tool provides order entry and decision support, allowing solution providers to deliver solutions customized for specific school district needs. Solution providers participating in the SYNNEX Chrome Community have access to multiple integration facilities in the U.S. and Canada, a turnkey white-glove experience, and a host of other professional services strategic to this implementation.”

With the console, VARs and MSPs can create user groups, pre-install and block apps, track assets, manage user access, control network access, and customize user features without having to touch each device. SYNNEX has also developed its “white glove” Chrome Management Console service portfolio. The service includes multiple options for solution providers:

  • Pre-sales Consultation – SYNNEX offers resellers and their school district customers consultation from inception through their consideration of Chromebook deployments, to develop a campus that is optimized for Chromebook deployment success and teacher adoption. Predictive and on-site wireless assessments are available, as well as Chrome Management Console setup for first-time deployments and proof-of-value school trials.
  • End-User Concierge Desk – Ongoing end-user technical support is available for teachers and administrators to inquire about usage or updates on behalf of the solution provider.
  • On-site Teacher Training – Teacher training is also offered so they are ready to use the curriculum. SYNNEX conducts trainings on-site so teachers not only understand the technology, but how to incorporate it into the curriculum.
