Innovative Computing Systems Helps Austin's St. Gabriel's Catholic School Integrate New Technology

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2015) -  Innovative Computing Systems, which is largely a legal information technology integrator with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Austin, has added St. Gabriel's Catholic School in Austin to its list of clients.

"St. Gabriel's initially needed a specific technology issue addressed, but it turned into full-scale implementation of new technology followed by our CIO and Director of Technology services," says Eric Hoffmaster, manager of Innovative Computing Systems' Austin-based Technical Assistance Center, who has been leading the project.

Innovative has deployed new mobile device management software to support a fleet of hundreds of iPads, Chromebooks and laptops for St. Gabriel's approximately 400 students, faculty and staff. The company will also perform 24x7 system administration, including monitoring, data backups and remote support. For on-site support, Innovative is helping St. Gabriel's formalize its own help desk procedures by building a ticketing and response system, hiring IT staff and providing an interim Director of Technology, among other initiatives.

Daniel McKenna, Head of School at St. Gabriel's, says, "St. Gabriel's Catholic School is excited to partner with Innovative to take the next step in educational technology management. This is a new model for schools and, I think, the way of the future."

Innovative is also helping St. Gabriel's plan the technological infrastructure of a new addition to the school.

"We want to ensure the school meets its goal of having the latest technological products and software in students' and teachers' hands without the lack of support and management problems faced by many schools. We are developing new ways to centralize systems, streamline IT and build-in efficiency," Hoffmaster shares.

Beyond IT infrastructure and managed services, Innovative is implementing physical education and fitness reporting software and new educational software for students and teachers in the high-demand areas of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). In addition, new software will allow the school nurse to use a health information system to input student health records and allow parents to view the records and add student health information.

Michael Kemps, CEO of Innovative Computing Systems, says, "Innovative Computing Systems looks forward to working with more educational institutions in the future."
