When faced with a challenge, Colorado’s top IT consulting firm doesn’t back down. Colorado Computer Support successfully deployed over 800 Apple notebooks in record time for the teachers of the Falcon School District.
Colorado Springs, CO Aug. 14, 2012 – The Falcon School District started the journey of migrating to an Apple environment with Colorado IT service organization Colorado Computer Support. Faced with a number of challenges around the delivery of all systems, CCS successfully deployed over 800 Apple MacBooks to every teacher of District 49, meeting their “when school starts” deadline.
D49 Executive Officer for Education Services Don Begier compared the rollout of 800 Apple devices to “tearing the band-aid off” and CCS was able to receive and deploy them over two weeks in July 2012 and have all training completed prior to the start of the school year in August.
Colorado Computer Support CEO Blake Schwank said, “Normally the deployment of over 800 devices can take 10 to12 weeks.”
CCS stepped up to the plate and got things done in record time.
CCS and D49 want to take the children of the district to the moon. Begier said, “Our very future is at stake; this MacBook can really accelerate educators’ success and the success with the students throughout the district.”
Many of the D49 staff members have never worked with the Mac OSX environment. CCS was instrumental in bridging the gap to ensure that all staff members throughout D49 have the practical skills they need to work in this technology world.
Teachers and staff throughout the district are leveraging another key benefit of migrating to Apple. D49 has the potential of saving a tremendous amount of money on textbooks by utilizing iBooks to transform how textbooks are used in the classroom.
CCS is partnering with Falcon School District 49 to reach its innovative goals by providing fully managed IT services throughout the organization, including help desk services and network operation support. The Falcon School District runs a mixed Apple and PC environment. Having a support organization that is equally versed in the Apple environment alongside the Microsoft PC world is a huge asset to organizations like the D49 school district and businesses throughout Colorado Springs.
“We want to do everything we can to maintain the A grade that the school district gave us, maybe even make it an A plus,” said Schwank. “This would not have been possible without an amazing team to manage this project from start to finish.”
CCS committed ten technicians and project staff to this effort for over two weeks and invested heavily in ensuring that the entire team was ready to serve the needs of D49. Their overall coordination, in addition to their ability to understand technology and then explain it at the user’s level, was instrumental to the success of a project of this magnitude.
