Standard School District and Fulton Public School Partner with Auvik for Network Management Tools

Standard School District | June 27, 2022

Standard School District and Fulton Public Schools have been collaborating with Auvik, a notedsupplier of cloud-based network management software, leading to enhanced productivity, real-time network visibility, and a significant return on investment. 2,200 students attend three elementary schools, a middle school, a high school, and an early care center in the fully certified Fulton Public Schools district in Missouri. 3,100 children are served by the three elementary schools and one middle school in the California district known as Standard School District. Both districts have specialized IT teams that keep an eye on the technological requirements of each district's schools. As more districts continue to offer virtual learning choices, increase the number of linked security devices, and implement interactive learning technologies in classrooms, network management has become an increasingly important demand in educational institutions. The teams used manual configuration and monitoring procedures prior to installing Auvik's network management software, spending a significant amount of time traveling to each school and attending to individual equipment. The teams may now concentrate on other issues because Auvik's software offers remote management and maintenance. “It took just a few days to get a return on value from the entire implementation, We’d tried a few open-source tools before Auvik, but they were very configuration heavy and took up a lot of senior-level staff’s time. The team also explored some commercial offerings but found they were either too vendor-specific, cost-prohibitive or both. Auvik’s out-of-the-box configuration was up and running in just under an hour and has helped us streamline our business operations, allowing our junior-level techs to find and resolve network issues directly, while our senior-level techs invest their time in larger projects. Auvik is a visual tool that helps the team quickly understand where to look first if there’s an issue. We are currently conducting intensive planning for long-term growth, which includes additional IT equipment, so centralized management was a big priority for us.” - Jeff Davis, Director of IT, Standard School District
