Manage Your Classroom, Manage Your LIfe

Stoneware’s webNetwork Unified Cloud Platform lets districts address the digital needs of today’s students by creating a safe and secure web-based environment. With webNetwork, IT directors create a
Unified Cloud, or workspace aggregator, that delivers private data, public cloud.
Districts using webNetwork store all of their data and applications on their internal servers so that everything remains within the district’s control. In a nutshell, the Unified Cloud makes it easier for school CIOs to deliver services because they don’t have to weave disparate products together. Additionally, it reduces technology costs by allowing for BYOD and reducing the need for expensive virtual private networks. Best of all, the single sign-on feature means many fewer helpdesk calls.
Schools using webNetwork say that it’s easy to use and has helped them to revolutionize the way they deliver IT services.
