SAN DIEGO, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Laptops are essential learning equipment for today's students and educators. For this reason, many educational institutions insure their laptops and offer laptop coverage to students through Worth Ave. Group, a company that specializes in safeguarding the laptops and mobile devices that are increasingly an indispensable learning asset. Worth Ave. Group today announced a valuable new addition to its laptop insurance product for educators and students: web-enabled laptop tracking software.
Launching at the ISTE 2012 Conference, which is being held in San Diego June 24-27, the customizable new laptop tracking software, a $29.95 value, is now offered free to educational institutions that purchase laptop insurance from Worth Ave. Group. In case of theft, the new laptop tracking software saves the policyholder money whether the device is recovered or not: The laptop insurance deductible is waived for subscribers who install laptop tracking software.
With Worth Ave. Group's new laptop tracking software, users can remotely enable and disable laptop tracking functions. The software runs silently in the background and cannot be uninstalled without an administrator's password. Laptop owners receive alerts when the laptop changes IP addresses. They also have access to advanced tracking functions, including the ability to take photos using the webcam, obtain screenshots and log keystrokes.
The laptop tracking software is fully customizable: Laptop administrators choose which features to activate and can change settings, enabling capture of desired information at certain intervals to meet their unique needs.
