Issues

“The demand for software installation in middle schools is the majority of our interventions. Teachers need software for a particular period or concept. Deployment needs to be done quickly and we needed to get feedback on the status of the deployment. We were using a class management solution with an AdminSys part but the deployment functionality was too cumbersome and not efficient. After some research we came across WAPT. I tested it and found the philosophy of the project very compatible with our operation. 80% of our interventions involve a request for installation or software updates.”
