The story

Nicaragua Christian Academy International is a school located in Nicaragua, Central America. The aim of NCA international is to provide education for children of expatriate evangelical missionary families. NCA holds a high commitment to provide children with education firmly rooted in good values of life. It is fully accredited in the US with AdvancED and ACSI. It’s also an evangelical and non-profit organization which is equipped to impact society through the development of moral values and academic perfection.

Thomás Gutiérrez, the Technology Coordinator of NCA International wanted to use Apple School Manager, which is a simple web-based portal for IT administrators, to deploy all the Apple devices from one place. Apple suggested Thomás to use Apple School Manager with an MDM solution to avail greater flexibility for configuring device settings, buying and distributing apps and books. So, he started his quest for an apt MDM solution.

After trying out a few MDMs, Thomás and his team decided to go with Hexnode. Hexnode turned out to be a standout performer in the MDM field as it offered a lot of features for a reasonable price compared to other MDMs. It was simple to use and the configurations worked great for the school. The user-friendly UI of the product was a great bonus.

“It was really simple to use...It was the one which works better for school”

Managing all the iPads became an effortless task with the help of Hexnode.
