Bett 2018–Get Google to turn your old devices into CloudReady machines

cloudreadyThroughout each day at BETT 2018, any school can drop off an old PC, Mac, or Netbook at the Google stand…and return later to pick up their “new” fast, reliable CloudReady device(s).

Specialists from Neverware will be flashing these old devices with CloudReady, an operating system based on Google’s Chromium OS. CloudReady breathes new life into old hardware, enabling schools to get extra use out of devices that may otherwise collect dust.

So bring along your old devices to Stand C230…they will be wiping them clean so please be sure to save any data beforehand! Learn more at https://events.withgoogle.com/bring-your-old-devices-bett-2018/.

Google’s stand is opposite ours at C210, so please feel free to drop in for a chat, sit down and a coffee. We hope to see you there later this week and talk to you about our integration with Google, Office 365, Active Directory, SharePoint and more.

Our rota is below, but feel free to just drop by and say hello and chat about our products and recent developments. We even have a seating area and coffee machine if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Bett for a while.
