Industry representative explains why storage, charging products are necessary in mobile device rollouts

mobile-chargingMany schools begin implementing mobile devices by opting to try a pilot of devices, and increasingly, they are also piloting charging carts or charging stations as well. Pilots give districts insight into the benefits their students and staff will realize in a mobile device deployment. Often, this insight is critical in securing and allocating any funding needed for mass deployments.
