ARC for Education
The face of technology has changed for IT leaders in education. Declining funding conflicts with your need to continue delivering the services that support institutional goals. Keeping ahead of new demands is also imperative, while ensuring that systems are running securely is vital.
That’s why schools, libraries and learning centers look to ARC to help them cut costs, not services, and stay ahead of the curve in an increasingly technologically complex environment.
ARC Education services encompass:
Deliver faster service more reliably while cutting costs and freeing up resources. Trust ARC experts to virtualize hardware and software and provide ease of management, to lighten server load, automate application deployment, and create a unified set of management tools for both virtual and physical infrastructures.
Today more than ever, schools must meld learning with technology to prepare students for life in a digital age. ARC can help you deliver an intelligent classroom environment with the seamless access to technology your students require, through classroom computers, projectors, interactive whiteboards, and the like, as well as the network infrastructure needed to support this growing requirement.
ARC has worked with Special Needs Educators and Dell to develop Assistive Technology Services that help ensure assistive technology is easily integrated into the overall technology infrastructure of a school/district or university. ARC’s Assistive Technology Services are designed to simplify and streamline the end‐to‐end process while enabling you to stay focused on helping students succeed.

Ensure that all involved can access the digital content that instructors work so hard to make available, safely and reliably, anytime, from anywhere, regardless of device type. ARC can help you devise a strategic plan and implement the technologies you need to make digital content delivery a reality in your school.
Mobile Device Management
Mobile devices have revolutionized learning – and created a whole new challenge for IT: keep students, faculty and administrators both connected and safe. Look to ARC to help you structure a plan that ensures your users can take advantage of their mobile devices without risking data loss, or breaking compliance with regulations like FERPA and other regulations.
All the IT and building assets – like learning tools and smart facility resources – generate data points you have to manage. ARC is experienced at creating asset tagging and management solutions that track all these complex details for you, to help you optimize expenses, enhance security, cut investment losses and much more.
Recycling IT Equipment
Disposing of used equipment is problematic when dealing with computers housing confidential student data. Let ARC take the challenge out of it for you, by taking on every step of this end of life process, from removing it from your site, to wiping and destroying the data, to the environmentally sound recycling process: with our partners, we can handle it all, so you can focus on more important matters.
An optimized network delivers the kind of performance that your users require. ARC solution experts can rearchitect your current network, or build a new one, for peak performance, high connectivity and uptime, reliability and security. And if needed, we can be your extra set of eyes and ears, remotely managing your LAN, WAN and wireless networks and resolving any issues for you.
