Lightspeed Systems Releases Admin Roles Feature to Relay and Mobile Manager

November 28, 2018

New feature in Lightspeed’s filtering and MDM solutions allows admins to delegate key responsibilities to staff while maintaining control of major functions and data

AUSTIN, TX.Lightspeed Systems, the leading provider of filtering and MDM solutions for K-12 schools, has released a crucial new feature for its Relay device filtering/monitoring solution and Mobile Manager mobile device management (MDM) solution. Admin Roles allows admins of the software solution to delegate granular management roles to other school staff members, allowing easy division of tasks and keeping sensitive student data secure.

In K-12 school environments, tech directors aren’t the only staff members involved with filter and MDM management. Other tech personnel, principals and even teachers can benefit from the ability to blacklist websites, share reports, and pull device location data. Admin Roles gives admins, aka district owners, the power to delegate specific administrative tasks to other team members without granting them full administrative access — saving admins’ time while ensuring management of devices and data remains centralized.

With Admin Roles in Relay and Mobile Manager, district owners can delegate any or all of the following admin abilities for schools and groups:
• Track location of lost devices
• View solution dashboard and reports
• Share activity reports
• View or modify users/groups
• View or modify student internet access policies: default, video, and after school
• View or modify URL whitelists and blacklists
• View or modify blocked search keywords
• Modify classroom rules
• Modify MDM rules (Mobile Manager only)

The cloud-based Relay eliminates the need for multiple systems to filter, monitor and manage all those devices with features for granular user activity reporting; content filtering, including social media and SSL sites, with flexible policies; real-time suspicious activity alerts; and geolocation for lost and stolen devices. And all these tools are available in a single, streamlined UI.

Also cloud-based, Mobile Manager is a device-agnostic MDM built exclusively for education. With support for 1:1 and BYOD, Mobile Manager was developed for K-12 education with hierarchal policies, allowing IT to easily assign roles and permissions to all levels of school personnel as well as students.
