Manage Your Network
(and Your Time)

Focus on macro-level network management of district- and school-owned devices. Hand over micro-level classroom management to teachers.

Make Device Management Easy

Oversee every device on your network while empowering teachers with classroom-level controls.

Simple Controls

Set global school or district usage rules while enabling teachers to monitor and manage classroom internet access.

Robust Reporting

Detailed usage data broken down by sites visited, student use, teacher use, classroom use, and more. You can even identify your biggest data users by activity or student!

No-Hassle Integration

Use our convenient Chromebook, Windows and MacBook apps to push NetRef to devices and sync user data. That’s it. You’re done!

Complete Oversight

See which school a device is located in, what type of device it is, and to whom it belongs to enforce your Internet Usage Policy.

Flexible Rules

Classroom-level controls won’t disrupt school or district rules, allowing flexibility with firewalls and filters. For example, leave YouTube available for students and let teachers block it locally.

Convenient Scheduling

Start students in focus mode at the beginning of every period so all students are limited to only the educational resources your school purchases. Allow teachers to enable access from there.
