We all know how frustrating it can be when a student forgets their Chromebook, or it’s uncharged, or damaged. Even worse, the device is lost.  Getting the student a replacement device uses valuable class time and then there’s the admin, updating a spreadsheet, or sending an email to IT and liaising with parents. If this sounds all too familiar you need to look at VIZOR. VIZOR is a software solution, which includes workflows specifically designed for schools to reduce the workload, and frustrations, for instructional staff and IT, of managing devices. VIZOR even automates many workflows, such as disabling lost devices. So no more spreadsheets, emails or Google admin updates. To find out more and qualify for up to 20% off, visit
