Ericom® AccessNow™ and Google Chromebooks in Education

  1. 1. With Ericom AccessNow™ – Google Chromebooks offer a complete educational access platform! Empower students and staff to access all of their applications — Google Apps, and Windows applications, virtual desktops and all websites. All you need is a Chromebook and an Internet connection. Ericom AccessNow is a pure HTML5 RDP Client, providing access to Windows applications and virtual desktops running on Windows Terminal Services/RDS/VDI platforms directly from Chromebooks. The Chromebook and AccessNow Combined Solution Does away with Windows PCs software management. Does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight, ActiveX, or any other underlying technology on the end-user device, significantly reducing IT overhead. Gives students and faculty the mobility to access Windows apps, desktops and websites from anywhere (school, library, home, or lab). Using AccessNow students can connect through the internet and access their Windows desktops and applications, including VMware View virtual desktops right from the browser. Simple, easy and inexpensive to maintain, works through the browser on all devices, for non- Chromebooks it does not require any upgrades or patches on the user’s device — NO software installation or plug-ins required. Providing students with Chromebooks rather than PCs simplifies the life of system administrators. Enables BYOD implementations — supports access from any HTML5 compatible browser on any platform, including Chromebook, Windows, Mac, Linux, iPad/iPhone, Android, etc. Work with your Web apps and any Windows applications — simultaneously!
