Bridging the Divide by Making Old Kit Great Again
Neverware's CloudReady operating system is built to run on almost any computer from the last 13 years, turning them into fast, secure devices using the same technology foundation as Chromebooks.
Installing CloudReady breathes new life into old hardware, enabling schools to get extra use out of devices that may otherwise sit collecting dust.
LGfL's CEO, John Jackson explains the "no-brainer" benefits of Neverware including low startup costs and easy deployment.
Ask yourself how else could you build and deploy a computer suite for 30 children for less than £1000!!!
LGfL, Google and Neverware Partnership
LGfL has partnered with Neverware for a number of years and this innovative collaboration has delivered one of the largest deployments of CloudReady in the world.
By converting tens of thousands of devices stuck in cupboards or destined for landfill sites LGfL has saved schools millions of pounds and helped the environment.
With the takeover of Neverware by Google, LGfL has negotiated a new deal for schools that ensures that schools who have claimed their Neverware Licences by 6th March 2021 will continue to enjoy the benefits of CloudReady for years to come.
LGfL Lets Get Digital broadband customers can receive free Neverware CloudReady licences, up to 60 licences for Primary and Special schools and 180 licences for secondary schools.
LGfL offer the Neverware licences without the need of a CEU (Chrome Education Upgrade), therefore, these devices wouldn’t be able to be managed in the school’s Google domain. Google Chrome Device Management (CDM) licences can be purchased separately from LGfL.
If you are not an LGfL Lets Get Digital Broadband customer or need more licences, you can purchase additional licences for £10 per annum, this amounts to a saving of £5 per licence per annum off standard retail price!
