Bretford Releases World’s First App-Enabled Charge and Sync Products for iOS Devices

Bretford Manufacturing, Inc.®, a global manufacturer of technology-enabled furniture for schools and businesses, today released the world’s first app-enabled charge and sync products for iOS devices. The PowerSync Cart® 40, PowerSync Cart® 20 and PowerSync Station™ 20 for iPad and iPad mini are designed for use in any organization looking for a safe, secure and organized way to charge, sync and store large numbers of iPad devices. They will be shown for the first time in the Bretford booth (#2365) during TCEA 2014, February 5-7 in Austin, Texas and are available for order now.

The PowerSync Cart 40, Cart 20 and Station 20, Bretford’s next generation of charge and sync products, set the new standard with features that for the first time allow users to remotely check connected devices, freeing up their schedule to focus on other tasks. With the companion PowerSync+™ app, users always know when their iOS devices are fully charged and ready to go. They can even be notified when devices are disconnected after hours.

According to Huey Ng, product manager for Bretford Manufacturing, Inc., “Large iOS deployments in schools and businesses have become commonplace with some organizations managing hundreds or even thousands of devices. We wanted to address — in an unobtrusive way — the whole new set of challenges involved with a deployment of that scale. Our customers asked for a way to manage all this 24/7, even when they weren’t with the devices, which is why we developed the PowerSync+ app and a new generation of charge and sync products that are app-enabled.”

Ng continued, “The new app will empower our users to no longer have to actively think about the management of their devices. They can simply plug them in and walk away knowing they can receive notifications when those devices are charged or removed. This instead allows IT staff, technology coordinators or other device administrators to focus on being more productive throughout a school or work day.”

PowerSync Cart 40 for iPad and iPad mini. Offers greater capacity in a compact footprint. The newly designed divider system is reconfigurable, offering maximum flexibility for protective cases. With pre-installed Lightning cables, the cart can simply be plugged in and is ready to go right out of the box. Users can configure and refresh connected devices with the latest apps and settings for their organization.

PowerSync Cart 20 for iPad and iPad mini. Contains all the same features as the Cart 40 but is designed to hold up to 20 devices and includes secure storage for corresponding accessories used to support 21st century learning such as headphones, keyboards and more. This allows all the demands of the curriculum to be accommodated in a single cart and within the same compact footprint.

PowerSync Station 20 for iPad and iPad mini. The PowerSync Station 20 offers great scalability. When space is limited, the PowerSync Station 20 can be stacked up to three units high or individually mounted on the wall. It offers an additional USB port to daisy chain up to three units for the management of up to 60 devices from a single host Mac.
